2008 Dirty List: foreign companies funding Burmese regime

leave a comment »

Email from The Burma Campaign UK

Dear friend,

Today we launched our 2008 ³Dirty List² exposing 50 more companies that are funding the Burmese regime. The list now contains 154 companies including the world¹s biggest motor company, a major airline, the owner of Jaguar and BBC Worldwide. Please visit our website now and tell at least one of the companies why they shouldn’t be financing the Burma’s brutal regime:

Every single day foreign companies give millions of dollars to the regime; allowing them buy the bullets, guns and supplies for the army that keeps them in power. These companies are financing a regime that rapes five-year-old girls, shoots peaceful protestors and leaves storm victims to die.

Since we launched the list 6 years ago over 100 companies have withdrawn because they pressure applied by you, our supporters. This has deprived the regime of millions of dollars. Please write to the companies today and tell them to why they must stop funding the Burmese regime:

Thank you for your continued support.

Johnny, Anna, Mark, Zoya, Hlaing, Jackie and the BCUK team.

P.S. Please do send us copies of any replies you may receive from companies.
