Burma Campaign UK is one of the leading Burma campaign organisations in the world. We play a leading role in raising awareness about the situation in Burma, and pressuring the international community to take action in support of the people of Burma.
Your support is crucial. Take action now and help the people of Burma in their struggle for freedom.
With our supporters around the world, we:
- persuaded the United Nations Security Council to discuss Burma for the first time and to demand the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners. The Security Council continues to be engaged on Burma.
- persuaded the British government to double aid to Burma, which will save hundreds of thousands of lives.
- exposed human rights abuses that the dictatorship tries to keep secret.
- generated thousands of media stories about Burma.
In the past year, there are reports that the Burmese Army has stepped up its use of rape, gang-rape and sexual violence against ethnic women.
There are hundreds of political prisoners in Burma. They have been imprisoned just for peacefully calling for democracy and freedom in Burma.
Burma’s military-backed government is still allowed to buy foreign weapons to commit horrific human rights abuses.
Refugees in camps on the Thailand Burma border, and those hiding in the jungle from the Burmese Army are facing cuts in rations and shelter.
Companies investing in Burma risk funding a military-backed government responsible for human rights abuses and environmental destruction.
Systematic attacks against the Rohingya ethnic minority in Burma have left possibly hundreds killed and more than 100,000 displaced.
Since breaking the ceasefire in June 2011, the Burmese Army has been committing horrific human rights abuses in Kachin state.
We desperately need your help.
Burma Campaign UK is making a difference, but without support from members of the public our work would end.
