Day of Action in City Centre, Saturday 8 October.
Shoppers, residents and day visitors to Limerick city centre responded enthusiastically to a call for support for the peaceful protests of the Burmese people on Saturday 8th October. An information stand erected at the intersection of O'Connell St. and Thomas St. had a steady stream of people anxious to sign letters of protest, and to find out more about the situation in the state of Myanmar (Burma).
On Saturday October 8th, members of Amnesty International (Limerick Group) and others called on the people of Limerick to support the peaceful demands of the Burmese people for democracy and human rights. Hundreds of people signed letters calling on the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) in Myanmar (Burma) to ensure that the people arrested there in the last few weeks are not subjected to torture or any other ill-treatment. The letters also urged the authorities to ensure that Burmese citizens are allowed to peacefully exercise the rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly without fear of harassment, intimidation or arbitrary detention, in line with international human rights standards.
