[BurmaCampaign] STOP INSURANCE COMPANIES BACKING BURMA'S GENERALS

TAKE ACTION

STOP INSURANCE COMPANIES BACKING BURMA'S GENERALS

Today we've exposed 16 insurance companies that are helping the Burma's generals buy the guns, bullets and tanks, which they use to rule Burma through fear. 

These companies are working from London to Singapore helping the regime make billions of dollars a year. These insurance companies are vital to the companies that operate in Burma who are the regime's financial lifeline.

Help us shut down this financial lifeline. 

TAKE ACTION

Write to the companies and tell them to stop supporting a regime that shoots innocent protestors and uses rape as a weapon of war http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/insuranceaction.php

Over the last 6 years your campaign emails and letters have helped us force over 100 companies to withdraw from Burma - depriving the regime of millions of dollars.

Insurance companies have never been targeted like this, our report, published today, shows that when insurance is withdrawn the regime loses millions of dollars, money they'd normally using on the military. You can read the report at: http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/insurance.php 

Please take a moment and write, fax or email the companies listed on this page: http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/insuranceaction.php

Thank you,
