2. As a true Union of Burma could not be built without the participation of ethnic nationals, we demand the immediate and unconditional release of the chairman of one of the ethnic national political party, Shan National League for Democracy (SNLD) U Hkun Htun Oo and Secretary U Sai Nyunt Lwin and other ethnic national leaders.
3. As elected representatives (Members of Parliament, or MPs) were mandated by the people to utilise power on their behalf in 1990 election, we demand the immediate and unconditional release of all detained MPs including ethnic national MPs.
4. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners who have been detained by means of punishment for their political beliefs and activities.
5. As the NLD is a legal political party, we demand the immediate reopening of NLD organising offices from all levels which have been sealed off nearly two years.
