Since the military coup, the EU and UK have announced they are considering targeted sanctions on the military, writes Burma Campaign UK’s Director in Labour Hub. Rohingya activists, Burma Campaign UK, the Labour Party and even UN investigators have been calling for this for years.
The people of Myanmar are crying out for international support. They are risking their lives protesting for their freedom. The least we can do is back them up by stopping British companies doing business with the military, business which helps them to fund genocide and military coups.
