Letter to the Secretary General of United Nations

To: Secretary General United Nations
The Honorable Ban Ki-Moon
Dear Mr. Ban,
I am urging You to seek a strong response from the Security Council to the situation in Burma/Myanmar. For every day of delay, untold numbers of Burmese people die or are imprisoned and tortured for believing they have the right to govern themselves. There are no human rights in that country, according to the ruling military junta.
The military junta rules through intimidation and fear, and is not a true government. This is a dictatorship. These Generals have lined their own pockets at the expense of the people through mismanagement of Burma/Myanmar’s abundant natural resources. They have systematically pursued the genocide of the indigenous Karen people. They have put down peaceful demonstrations with violence. No one will ever know the true extent of their depredations, because the dead cannot speak for themselves.
You know all this of course, but You are not as helpless as I am.
I beg of You, Mr. Ban, to coordinate a stiff response to this situation in Burma/Myanmar! It cannot be allowed to continue!
Please Mr Ban,
show us all that The United Nations is not a lame duck!
