In the wake of the recent coup in Burma, the difficult and risky struggle for democracy is not simply a struggle to return Aung San Suu Kyi to power. It is a struggle against the actual perpetrator of genocide, the brutal Burmese military. In new ways we see the diverse people of Burma finally coming together across religious and ethnic boundaries. Even the Rohingya are being embraced.The road to justice passes through this moment of hope and unity.
But this hope is fragile. We can lose it. The brave young people of the Civil Disobedience Movement face murder and arrest. We must demand that the US Congress respond immediately.
