As of April 6, 2023, the junta has sentenced 151 other individuals to death, according to AAPP’s documentation. Notably, of the 34 pro-democracy supporters whose ages are known, 58.8 percent are individuals under 30 years old, showing the junta’s targeted use of the death penalty against youth actively opposing the military coup and supporting the pro-democracy movement in Burma.
ND-Burma formed in 2004 in order to provide a way for Burma human rights organizations to collaborate on the human rights documentation process. The 13 ND-Burma member organizations seek to collectively use the truth of what communities in Burma have endured to advocate for justice for victims. ND-Burma trains local organizations in human rights documentation; coordinates members’ input into a common database using Martus, a secure open-source software; and engages in joint-advocacy campaigns.
