The 'Dirty List' and where to protest Saturday October 6th
Today is the International Bloggers' day for Burma and enough will be written about the history, the analysis, current and past victims. What I wanted to do was to encourage you to look into a letter writing campaign (often easily done via email) to companies of your choosing who do business with the brutal military regime.
The Burma Campaign composed such a list and called it the 'dirty list' for obvious reasons. Even if you write one or two letters, or emails, anything is good. The whole blogosphere is focussed on Burma and hopefully other media outlets continue to report and expose on the current situation. That is, unless Fox or CNN consider the breaking news of Britney Spears latest life sage more important!
In response to calls from Burma’s democracy movement, the Burma Campaign UK and other campaign groups around the world have been pressuring companies to sever business ties with Burma.
Please contact one or more of the companies on the Dirty List and ask them to cut their ties with Burma’s military government. If appropriate, tell them you will not purchase their products as long as they continue to support the regime in Burma.
Letters written in your own words are most effective. If you don’t have much time, don’t worry - just one or two paragraphs will do. Please be polite!
We would be grateful if you could send us a copy of any responses you receive.
