At a time when the international situation knows deep political changes, we note with sadness that Laos remains fundamentally a Marxist-Leninist dictatorship where the single Party (Revolutionary Party) ruled the country unchallenged under a totalitarian regime and where its inhabitants have sunk into poverty and living in a climate of fear (abuses, arbitrary arrests). We are deeply convinced that free nations, international organizations, women and men of good will who cherish freedom and justice, are sure to continue their efforts to help the Lao people who continue to suffer under a totalitarian regime be freed from the yoke of dictatorship.
The alarming situation both politically and economically and socially, according to the supreme interests of the nation and meet the deepest of the Lao people's legitimate aspirations, the Lao National Council for Democracy requires forcefully:
1 / the cessation of all acts of violence and arbitrary arrests committed against patriots who demand freedom, democracy, reconciliation, human rights and multiparty
2 / the unconditional release of prisoners of conscience, imprisoned without trial and treated inhumanely and without retaliation;
3 / total and unconditional withdrawal, foreign forces in Laos under the control of the UN;
4 / organizing a "round table" together the heads of the opposition and the current authorities of Vientiane, to restore national harmony and agreement, to rebuild Laos together in rule of law;
5 / canceling all treaties that have not been concluded as equals with other countries, especially neighboring countries, and that undermine national sovereignty;
6 - / Laos remains the homeland of Laos from all sides, including those who have adopted the nationality of the host country;
7 / free general elections by universal suffrage with the participation of all political parties inside and outside the country under international supervision;
8- / building a democratic and neutral truly free political system, reflecting the most ardent aspirations of the Lao people in a referendum.
The Lao National Council for Democracy fully supports all actions in favor of the agreement, reconciliation and national harmony in Laos and freedom and peace in Asia.
