A statement where WLB strongly condemns the SPDC for their violent attacks and unlawful arrests of protestors peacefully
demonstrating against the regime's steep increases in fuel costs which have driven up the prices of transportation and commodities. We demand that SPDC immediately stop these attacks using the USDA (Union Solidarity and Development Association) and special police, and immediately release all the 88 Generation students including and other peaceful protestors.
WLB particularly condemns SPDC for letting USDA members and special police carry out attacks and harassment with impunity. On August 22 and 23, they punched and beat women protestors leading peaceful demonstrations in different areas in Rangoon.
