Campaign Goals

In order to ensure that all critical issues are addressed in accordance with the will of the people, international law and human rights principles, the Shwe Gas Movement, appeals to the international community to:

  • Postpone the extraction of the Shwe natural gas deposit until a time when the affected people in Western Burma can participate in decisions about the use of their local resources and related infrastructure development without fearing persecution.
  • Withdraw or freeze all current business with the military regime, and refrain from further investment until dialogue can be held with a democratically elected government.
