85 Karen Organizations urgently appeal to the Karen armed organizations (KNU/KNLA, DKBA, KNU/KNLA-PC and Karen BGF) not to cooperate with the Myanmar military junta’s illegitimate dictator-government
14 February 2021
1. On February 1st 2021, the Myanmar military (Tatmadaw) seized power and arrested National League for Democracy (NLD) leaders including State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and President U Win Myint, who won the 2020 democratic general election. As a consequence we Karen must conclude that all democratization processes, the 2008 constitution, the centralized peace process, and the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) and its mechanisms have been rendered null.
