Joint Civil Society Appeal: UNSC Should Adopt Global Arms Embargo Against Myanmar

WFM/IGP is one of the signatories to the letter.

5 May 2021: We, the undersigned organizations, call on the United Nations Security Council to urgently impose a comprehensive global arms embargo on Myanmar to help prevent further violations of human rights against peaceful protesters and others opposing military rule. In recent weeks, Myanmar security forces have killed hundreds of people, including dozens of children, merely for exercising their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
