Burma Point Calls to Stand with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi Rally at UN

Rally in response to criticism of Myanmar democratic leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been courageously facing an ongoing crisis in the west of the country.

New York, NY, September 22, 2017 --(PR.com)-- This is to inform and invite all media to the Burmese-Americans’ peaceful rally at the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (1st Ave and 47th Street) on Friday.

Members of Burma Point and Burmese-American community living in New York and other states will gather on Friday to show that they stand with Burma’s State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her administration in the midst of the crisis taken place in the west of the nation.

The United Nations and other nations have criticized Daw Aung San Suu Kyi for her lack of actions and silence during the crisis. Burma Point believes that the criticisms are absolutely unfair.

Moe Chan, a member of Burma Point, says, “There were media coverages of the Rakhine issue based only on one-sided stories and propaganda giving into the interest of terrorists and their supporters. The Burmese-Americans find them total disappointment.”

As Myanmar Vice President Henry Van Thio gave a speech at the UN on Wednesday, they will gather at the time and location below to respond to the international community that they stand with Myanmar’s democratic leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her administration.

Members of Burma Point and Burmese-Americans in the U.S. have been supporting Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her fight for democracy for the past 12-20 years respectively according to Moe Chan.
