Press Release ‘Binning the Election’ Stop legitimising military rule in Burma Boycott 2010 Elections in Burma

Date: Friday 29 October 2010
Venue: UK European Union (EU) and European Commission (EC) office.

The Democratic Party for a New Society (DPNS – UK) in cooperation with
the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) holds a boycott 2010 Elections in
Burma campaign under the banner ‘Binning the 2010 Elections’.

The campaign travels today outside the European Union (EU) and
European Commission (EC) UK offices in London to highlighting our
concerns over it’s funding of the Myanmar Egress, a think-tank and a
‘pseudo’ NGO which is responsible for promoting and endorsing the 2010
Elections. It also wishes to send a signal to the EU and EC that any
government emerge out of an illegitimate ‘rubber stamp’ 2008
constitution cannot be deemed as a true democratic government.

The launch of a series of weekly ‘Binning the 2010 Elections’
campaign began in a form of protest outside the Burmese Embassy in
London on 8 October with each participant binning the voting paper
titled ‘2010 Elections’ in the litter bin in silence or with a short
speech - to symbolise their disapproval of the elections on 7
November. It will represent the opinion of thousands of Burmese
people inside the country who will boycott the election. The ‘Binning
2010 Election’ will continue to travel outside the Downing Street.

Background: 7 November will see Burma having its first 'general
elections' in 20 ears. Unfortunately, this will be a sham election
designed to legitimise the current military rulers. The consequence of
this election for Burma will be the entrenchment of ruling military
elite that has presided over widespread human rights abuses, including
arbitrary detentions, enforced disappearances, rape and torture.
