About the Burma Campaign
Founded in 1991, the Burma Campaign UK is one of the leading Burma campaign organisations in the world. They play a leading role in raising awareness about the situation in Burma and pressuring the international community to take action in support of the people of Burma.
• As part of a global campaign, they persuaded the United Nations Security Council to discuss Burma for the first time. The Security Council continues to be engaged on Burma.
• They persuaded the British government to double aid to Burma, and to fund cross- border aid in order to reach ethnic people that the regime doesn't allow aid to be delivered to.
• They have generated thousands of stories about Burma in the media, ensuring the world does not ignore the crisis there.
• They have persuaded many large multinational companies to end their involvement in Burma.
• They have met with the British Prime Minister, and many other senior politicians around the world, ensuring the message of Burma’s democracy movement is heard by global decision makers.
• They provide support and training to Burmese exile organisations and individuals, building the capacity of people from Burma to speak out and influence the international community.
• They help to coordinate and build Burma campaign groups worldwide, building a strong solidarity movement to help the people of Burma.
• They are a small organisation dependent on public support. They do not receive any government funding.
