Founded in 1991, 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.
- As part of a global campaign, we persuaded the United Nations Security Council to discuss Burma for the first time. The Security Council continues to be engaged on Burma.
- We persuaded the British government to double aid to Burma, and to fund cross-border aid in order to reach ethnic people that the regime doesn’t allow aid to be delivered to.
- We have generated thousands of stories about Burma in the media, ensuring the world does not ignore the crisis there.
- We have persuaded many large multi-national companies providing revenue to the dictatorship to end their involvement in Burma.
- We have met with the British Prime Minister, and many other senior politicians around the world, ensuring the message of Burma’s democracy movement is heard by global decision makers.
- We provide support and training to Burmese exile organisations and individuals, building the capacity of people from Burma to speak out and influence the international community.
- We help to coordinate and build Burma campaign groups worldwide, building a strong solidarity movement to help the people of Burma.
- We are a small organisation dependent of public support. We do not receive any government funding. If you would like to support Burma Campaign UK, click here
