with the people of Burma in their struggle for human rights and democracy and
to develop alternatives to current official policy and practice adopted by
ASEAN member governments.
It will also provide the launching point for a broader regional campaign
through the establishment of an ALTERNATIVE ASEAN
NETWORK to mobilize grassroots people and civic organizations.

ALTERNATIVE ASEAN DECLARATION ON BURMA.
