WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 19, 2021) – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.Res. 134, a resolution to condemn the military coup and ongoing violence in Burma. U.S. Representative Tim Burchett (TN-02) supported this measure, and stressed the severity of this situation during debate on the House floor.

"What’s going on in Burma is pure evil," Rep. Burchett said on the House floor. "The autocratic strongmen leading this coup are using deadly force to crack down on all dissenting speech. Burmese authorities—under the direction of these military thugs—are actively murdering demonstrators, arresting thousands, and imprisoning international reporters covering the situation."
