Dear friends,

We�ve just launched our new edition of the �Dirty List�. It�s the biggest
list we�ve ever produced, containing 170 companies that directly or
indirectly fund Burma�s brutal regime.

Thanks to your emails over the past year many companies have pulled out of
Burma, depriving the regime of hundreds of thousands of pounds. Remember XL
insurance? Cotton Traders? Arig insurance? They�ve all pulled out in the
past year. So have others like Trailblazer Guides, Jet Gold Corp, CHC and
Aquatic.

TAKE ACTION
Please write to a few of these companies right now and tell them to stop
bankrolling Burma�s generals:

Every single day foreign companies give millions of dollars to the regime;
allowing them to buy the bullets, guns and supplies for the army that keeps
them in power. These companies are financing a regime that rapes
five-year-old girls, shoots peaceful protestors and leaves storm victims to
die.

This is your chance to speak directly to the companies that fund the regime.
Tell them why what they�re doing is wrong. Tell them why they must respect
the wishes of Burma�s democracy movement and pull out of Burma now:

Do let us know if you receive any replies. You can send them to
info@burmacampaign.org.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

Johnny Chatterton

P.S. We also just published our monthly newsletter �Last month in Burma�
which gives you the latest news from Burma over the last month. You can read
them for free here: http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/lastmonth.html
