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.

The British government must increase aid to refugees to prevent further suffering.

Aid to Burma

image

Burma is one of the poorest countries in Asia. Decades of military rule and economic mismanagement have resulted in widespread poverty, poor health care and low educational standards, with an estimated 75% of the population living below the poverty line. Burma’s military-backed government spends more than five times on the military than on health care.

The military-backed government in Burma is accused of committing crimes against humanity for its widespread and systematic human rights abuses, including torture, forced displacement, sexual violence, extra-judicial killings and forced labour.

The military-backed government in Burma has one of the world’s worst records on human rights, with multiple violations of international humanitarian law.

The Burmese Army rapes, loots, burns, tortures and kills. Despite these appalling acts, there is no UN global arms embargo on Burma.
