US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield has delivered a powerful message to the people of Myanmar & the world with a call to action:"The US stands with you...We cannot allow them (the junta) to succeed...only concrete action will change the military's calculus." Exactly. https://t.co/uGLhvwFefs

The failure of the UN Security Council to even consider a strong resolution on Myanmar this week was regrettable.  Using it as an excuse for inaction would be unacceptable.  Coordinated international action to support those under siege & hold the junta accountable cannot wait. https://t.co/WsVe1KljbA

The junta has shut down wireless Internet access & is now deploying rocket propelled grenades, machine guns & other weapons of war against the people of Myanmar. This madness must stop. Sanctions & an arms embargo must be imposed to cut their access to revenue and weapons. Now. https://t.co/XsMYuZba1c

On Wednesday the UN Security Council should vote to cut the junta's access to funds and weapons and refer their atrocities to the ICC. Myanmar people are not deterred by junta violence. Nations should not be deterred by threats of a UNSC veto. Stand up and be counted. #forceavote https://t.co/V7OjELuPzZ

The military celebrated Armed Forces Day by  committing mass murder against the people it should be defending. The Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) is responding with powerful weapons of peace. It's past time for the world to respond in kind with & for the people of Myanmar. https://t.co/kZCZmpI0jm

I called for an Emergency Summit on Myanmar today in a news release from Geneva and before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee's East Asia Subcommittee. Tough, coordinated international pressure on the junta is imperative.

My heart goes out to the families of the 15 who lost their lives in yesterday's tragic fire that destroyed or damaged over 10,000 shelters at a camp sheltering Rohingya refugees from Myanmar in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. 560 were injured and 400 are missing as of this morning. https://t.co/crByYstUVh

The UN Sect General is right when he says “a firm, unified international response is urgently needed” to address the crisis in Myanmar. Without UN Security Council action, the people of Myanmar need and deserve immediate, tough, coordinated action from all governments who agree. https://t.co/dceS5UZrlP

The junta can't defeat the people of Myanmar united in peaceful opposition. Desperate, it launches ruthless attacks to provoke a violent response to try and justify even more violence. It's not working. The world must respond by cutting their access to money & weapons. Now. https://t.co/ezRlDMabwg

Heartbroken/outraged at news of the largest number of protesters murdered by Myanmar security forces in a single day. Junta leaders don't belong in power, they belong behind bars. Their supply of cash & weapons must be cut now. I appeal to UN member states to heed my call to act. https://t.co/QxuES4Mhii

Today I told the UN HR Council the Myanmar junta knows all about weapons of war but are at a loss how to deal with weapons of peaceful resistance wielded by a determined people defending their nation & their children's future. They need & deserve the UN to stand with & for them. https://t.co/vlkp3kHxzt
