The Council for World Mission has joined others in the international ecumenical community in expressing its support for the people of Burma pressing for the creation of a
democratic government.

In a statement this week, CWM assured the people of Burma of its “moral support for them in their desire and demand for a democratic government” after the country recently witnessed some of the largest protests in two decades against the ruling junta.

“[CWM] expresses solidarity with those individual citizens and communities of faith who have engaged in protest against the military regime,” the worldwide body of Christian churches stated.”
