A campaign by the Burma Campaign UK is trying to highlight ongoing human rights abuses in Burma.
To make its point, Burma Campaign has delivered more than 2,000 rose-tinted glasses, and issued photo petitions to the British Foreign Office to put pressure on the British government to a “return to putting human rights as their top priority in Burma,” the group said.
The United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC) wants the Karen National Union (KNU) to be part of its organisation. In a speech delivered by Khu Oo Reh, General Secretary of the UNFC on the 66th anniversary of Karen Revolution Day in Karen State he underlined the importance of the KNU role in the UNFC.
Padoh Saw Thamein Tun, a member of the Karen National Union (KNU)’s Central Executive Committee said that the KNU would never go alone and sign a nationwide ceasefire in Burma. The KNU said that it is only willing to sign the ceasefire together with the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC) and the Nationwide Ceasefire Coordination Team (NCCT).
