Robert Adam Street,

Hundreds of thousands of people are living in the jungles of eastern Burma , on the run, without adequate shelter, food, medicine or security, in fear for their lives, pursued by the Burma Army. At least 1,400 people are in prison in Burma ’s jails, enduring severe torture and harsh conditions. Women are raped, men used for forced labour, boys forcible conscripted into the Burma Army, and people used as human minesweepers. Villages are burned, crops and livestock destroyed, people killed. The Nobel Laureate, Burma ’s democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, remains under house arrest. Thousands are refugees in Thailand , India and Bangladesh .

That Is Why we should respond to Aung San Suu Kyi’s request that we pray for Burma , and that we use our liberty to promote the liberty of the people of Burma .

You can be involved in the Global Day of Prayer for Burma in two ways. Firstly by advertising and attending our London prayer event. Please call Sarah (details below) for an event poster. Confirmed speakers for this day are Baroness Caroline Cox – President of CSW and founder of HART (Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust) and Harn Yawnghwe – Director of the Euro-Burma Office, Brussels .

Topics for prayer will include the million displaced people inside Burma , all those suffering under the oppressive military regime, those in camps along the borders, those affected by the widespread human rights abuses, including victims of forced labour, ethnic cleansing and rape.
The theme for the day will be ‘Unity in Diversity’ with a focus on the ethnic groups, the pro-democracy movement and outside NGOs working effectively together. Other topics for prayer will include religious freedom inside Burma , the rulers of Burma and all who are seeking to help those oppressed by them.

Secondly, we would like to encourage you to hold your own meeting to pray for the people of Burma .
