This demonstration at the Burmese Military Embassy we would like to express our
support the All Burma Young Monks Union (ABYMU) that is the main Burmese young
monks Organization located inside and outside the country.
Today is the deadline called by the Monks Union for the
establishment of peaceful dialogue between Burma's SPDC Military
Regime and democratic legitimate leadership particularly
the Committee Representing People's Parliament
ABYMU has promised peaceful action if the dialogue does not proceed, but indications from Burma are that there will be a violent
crackdown against the monks if they act. Australia
and international governments immediately order to urge their citizen from
Burma, as they are the potential targets of counter violence in the country.
suggest that the Commonwealth Government's offer to provide human rights

We call for the military regime to unconditionally agree with the
dialogue with Committee Representing People's Parliament.
We are also calling for the international community to cut all ties with
the brutal regime in Burma
firmly declare that we will not rest till we win democratic change in Burma
