Call To Action

We honor and commend all those physicians, nurses and medical and nursing students who provided medical care to those injured peaceful protestors

At the same time, we are saddened by the fact that those peaceful protestors who received injuries and wounds were not allowed to be taken to hospitals immediately. What is more repulsive to us is the news that some of the wounded and injured were cremated live at Ye Way cemetery. Therefore, we the Concerned Myanmar Physicians and Professionals strongly condemn SPDC for such inhuman acts of atrocity committed against its own people.

As a civilized nation and society, we the People cannot and will not tolerate the rule of atavistic bullies who dare to maim and massacre venerable sangha and unarmed lay citizens in full view of the world.

Therefore, we emphatically urge our fellow physician, nurses and healthcare professionals to join hands with our venerable Sayadaws and people in the general strike that will begin on Monday, October 1, 2007.

We also urge fellow members of our professions who are serving in the military to join us in this fight for the future of our People, Sasana and Nation.
