Global ‘Boycott Myanmar’ campaign starts

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Several rights groups launched a global boycott initiative urging corporations, foreign investors as well as professional and cultural organisations to sever their institutional ties with Myanmar. A total of 30 human rights, academic and professional organisations from 10 countries jointly launched the “Boycott Myanmar Campaign” from London, in hopes to “bring to bear economic, cultural, diplomatic and political pressure on Myanmar’s coalition government of [State Counselor] Aung San Suu Kyi and the military”, said the campaigners in a statement. Myanmar faces a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) filed by West African country Gambia, with the support of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
