The Blood Money Campaign was initiated and designed by activists and union leaders on the ground in Myanmar. Among others the Federation of General Workers Myanmar (FGWM) is involved, which consists of grassroot factory unions across the country – mostly in textile factories. The campaign aims to pressure companies that keep doing business with the military junta – be it directly or indirectly. Various labour unions such as FGWM as well as the Confederation of Trade Unions of Myanmar (CTUM) as a whole call on all companies to halt investments in Myanmar. With any business done the military and its repressive regime benefit – through taxes, fees or direct cooperations.
