MARUAH Singapore calls on individuals to submit three-finger salute photos in solidarity with the people of Myanmar

Human rights non-governmental organisation MARUAH Singapore is making a call to action to the people of Singapore to express solidarity with the people of Myanmar by sending in photos holding up the three-finger salute, which became a popular symbol of pro-democratic movements after the protests in Thailand.

“From Singapore: IN SOLIDARITY With The People In Myanmar” will entail compiling photographs of individuals holding up the three-finger salute in the form of a collage, with statements against the military coup d’état and the escalation of violence against peaceful protesters.

Statements objecting to the imprisonment and torture of political leaders, activists, journalists, and protesters, as well as those condemning the lack of action by regional and international communities will also be attached to the collage.

MARUAH added that the campaign also aims to call for humanitarian aid to be provided to the injured and food to be given to the people.

Targeted economic sanctions, global travel bans and asset freezes by governments, banks and the private pector on military personnel, military-owned companies within the Myanmar Economic Holdings Public Companies and Myanmar Economic Corporation are also part of the demands in the MARUAH call to action.

MARUAH also said that the campaign will call for a global arms embargo to block supplies and sale of weaponry to the military and other armed groups in Myanmar.

To participate, individuals may submit a photograph of themselves holding up the three-finger salute, as illustrated below:

Each photo should not be larger than 1 MB. Photographs without names listed in English will be left anonymous.

MARUAH said that it reserves the right to reject images that are offensive and prejudicial to the intent and spirit of this request.

Those keen on submitting their photos may do so to [email protected] with the subject “In Solidarity with Myanmar (Photo collage)” by Thursday (25 Mar) by 10pm.
