Take Action: Boycott and Divest from Companies With Investments in Burma

Many companies are invested in Burma. Learn about the unethical practices this complicity brings about. Download a list of these companies and help organise a boycott or divestment campaign in your community!

The SHWE Gas Movement stands in solidarity with the international trade union movement, which believes that "it is impossible to conduct any trade or engage in other economic activity with Burma without providing direct or indirect support, mostly financial, to the military junta."

Get started by ownloading the Global Union's list of companies with links to Burma.
