Urgent Action.

Dear !

The following news from Bangkok is about that Burmese Students were
crackdowned by Thai police on 28th November 1995 because they stages to do a
peaceful demonstration before General Than Shwe and Secreatry 1 - Khin Nyunt
of State Law and Order Restoration Council of Burma (SLORC) visit to
Thailand. A Burmese old man, 75 years old,  was also arrested by Thai police
in Bangkok. Now they are in Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) in Bangkok.
Most of them are allowed to resettle in Australia and leaving for Australia
in December, 1995. I would like to request you and your organisation to take
an Urgent Action for them to be released from  the IDC and to be allowed to
go Australia for the resettlement.
