Myanmar/ Burma – Brutal crackdown against a student protest (March 5, 2015)


France is concerned about the use of violence to crackdown against peaceful student demonstrations in Burma.

We reaffirm our attachment to the right to demonstrate peacefully as well as the freedom of expression, which form the foundation of all democratic societies.

France hopes that the future national commission of inquiry concerning the demonstration in Yangon on March 5 will shed full light on these incidents.
