Dear Mr. Secretary-General,
ASEAN must act for Burma Cyclone
On 2 May 2008, Cyclone Nargis ripped across the coast of Myanmar (Burma) bringing massive devastations to hundreds of thousands of people. The scale of the devastation is so immense that a huge relief and reconstruction efforts will be needed as soon as possible. There are a lot of aid teams waiting outside to go in with supplies but are being blocked by the Government of Myanmar.
With these concerns, we, the undersigned Burmese People, strongly urge ASEAN to act as a proxy-role to divert resources and aid from the United States, EU and Middle Eastern countries to Myanmar (Burma) for effective aid and breaking the aid deadlock and mistrust.
Furthermore, we, the Burmese People around the world, would like to urge ASEAN to organize to send humanitarian assistance teams from governments of ASEAN countries, China, Japan, India and Australia to Burma as an urgent matter.
