Jim Carrey calls for U.N. sanctions on Burma - Nicola West

Image

At a press conference at in NYC yesterday Jim urged the security council to implement arms sanctions and pressure Burma to end it's suppression of pro-democracy supporters and the imprisonment of Aung San Suu Kyi.

Appealing to Than Shwe, head of the latest junta in 45 unbroken years of military rule of the former Burma he said: "There is nothing to defend if you have lost the faith of your people. It is already over."

"This is a government that uses its weapons not in self defense, but against its own citizens," the actor/comedian told a news conference across the street from the United Nations.

"The time has come for the United Nations Security Council to start acting less like a group of corporations and more like united nations,"
he said, urging China and Russia -- Security Council members that have been resistant to sanctions -- as well as India to back the ban.

Last week saw mass demonstrations across Burma resulting in some 100,000 protestors taking to the streets. The marches were halted by security forces who imposed violent raids on monasteries. Communication networks were shut down as the West watched leaked images in horror.

The speech was a precursor to a day of worldwide activities organised to highlight the crises by the Campaign for Burma.

* The name 'Burma' is used instead of Myanmar in respect of the pro-democracy protestors. Myanmar was the name imposed on them by the military.

When i put on the site a few weeks ago that a really wanted to know what cause he was passionate about, i couldn't have imagined a short time later he'd be holding a press conference across from the UN. Jim, i take my hat off to you for speaking out ........you've spoken up for the millions trapped under a terrible regime. You are INDEED a rare breed.

Apologies Tanu..........i had to delete those pics because they were straight from Getty and we're not allowed to post them..........sorry hun :(

and Jack............absolutely, it's all about Burma and the atrocities........i was appalled to read that not only are the military burning the bodies of the dead.....but the bodies of the injured as well.......they are being burned alive..........
30 countries throughout the world held demonstrations against the regime in Burma today........
the support and message is there.....but where will the diplomats and politicians take it?.......it's up to them now........

To tell you the truth, when I opened this and saw him with short hair, I was a little disappointed. Like when I was six and found books without pictures.
