La Nan, one of the protest leaders, said they held a brief demonstration and submitted their demands in writing to an official from the embassy. They also made their demands public by reading both in Burmese and English.
“Our prime demands to the Burmese government are
(i) STOP military offensive in Kachin State immediately
(ii) STOP raping, torturing and killing innocent civilians immediately
(ii) FIND a peaceful political solution through a meaningful dialogue,”
said La Nan.
It is also learned that a similar protest against war in Kachin State will be held on the same day by Kachin people around the world. --KBG
