Bishops pray for an end to violence and oppression in Myanmar

Following their Summer General Meeting, Irish Bishops expressed their deep concern about the ongoing repression and brutality inflicted on civilians in Myanmar.

Since February, people in Myanmar have peacefully called for democracy in their country while being brutally suppressed by the military. Many people have lost their lives, many others have been imprisoned. There is now a climate of fear and intimidation in Myanmar and the courageous people need to know that the international community stands with them in solidarity.

Bishops echo calls made by Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, Archbishop of Yangon, who has called for the killings to stop and for dialogue to replace violence.

Pope Francis, too, has called for dialogue and peace while also expressing solidarity with the people’s legitimate demand to reinstate democracy.

Bishops prayed for an end to oppression and violence, and for respect for the voices of the people of Myanmar, and they stated that peace and dialogue must prevail.
