No Way, No Shwe!!

Press Conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh, January 13, 2005











Press Conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh, January 13, 2005

Dirty DaewooWe believe that if we all join hands, we can make a difference to the people and the environment that are threatened by the Shwe project. Join us!

Despite living under the Burma regime’s control, the Shwe Gas Movement has secretly collected and disseminated information about the project in Burma, including putting up posters in several Arakanese towns.

Internationally, the Shwe Gas Movement and its solidarity networks have implemented conferences, seminars and meetings in India, South Korea, Thailand and Bangladesh. The Shwe issues have also been conveyed through other Burma fora as well as other gatherings of human rights and environment activists.

To date, two international days of action against the Shwe project have been held and on November 15 2006 the third international day of action will be held all over the world.

Please download a pdf file (103 Kb) for more information and contact persons in your country. If your country is not included, and you would like to organize such an event, please contact us at global@shwe.org.

  • Sign our online petition: Please take a few minutes to read and sign our global petition.
  • Boycott/Divestment Campaigns: Many companies are investing in Burma. Just as boycott and divestment campaigns were effective in helping end South African apartheid, so too can similar campaigns help the oppressed people of Burma. Whether you help persuade your university, your company, or family members to divest and/or stop using blacklisted products, here is a list of companies you should stay away from--and a very effective way to help stop disastrous Shwe project from reaching completion.
  • Letter Writing Campaign: Write a letter to the companies and governments involved. Tell the United Nations, the European Union or the United States to take a more forceful stand against the Burmese junta. Here you'll find addresses and other information to get you started speaking truth to power.
