The United Nations reports the government of Burma continues to imprison more than 1,100 (eleven hundred)
political prisoners, including Nobel peace laureate and pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
A report delivered by a UN human rights envoy to the General Assembly documented forced labor, sexual violence,
extortion and expropriation committed by troops in the ruling military junta. Meanwhile, outside the
United Nations several Burmese pro-democracy activists have entered the thirteen day of a hunger strike.
This is Burmese refugee, Han Lin: "It is time that the United Nations to take effective action against
the Burmese brutal military regime.
It is time. We Burmese people cannot be suffering anymore because
the real situation in Burma gets worse."
