Blood Money Campaign

MaterialsWhat YOU can do! Blacklist of companies Reports News Stop Telenor!

The Blood Money Campaign was initiated and designed by activists and union leaders on the ground in Myanmar. The BMC team is comprised of activists with different backgrounds: for example labor and student unions, civic engagement, peace and education activists, youth, people with disabilities as well as people in research, IT and design.
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.
The BMC initiators decided to put the focus especially on the oil and gas industry in October 2021. They call for targetted sanctions of the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE), which would impact corporations like TotalEnergies, Chevron, Petronas, PTTEP and POSCO.
With any business done the military and its repressive regime benefits – through taxes, fees or direct cooperations.

Currently various external actors – mostly other grassroot labour unions as well as people born in Myanmar and living in exile – are involved. Among them is the International Confederation of Labour (ICL) as well as unions connected with the Global May Day network. The campaign can be seen as a continuation of the Call for International CDM Solidarity published in April.

Freeze flow of money to the military junta!
Cut off the junta’s access to international business!
Stop funding crimes against humanity!

Stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Myanmar!

Joint Statement

Myanmar and International: Call on President Macron and the French Government to refuse to allow TotalEnergies to use exemptions to EU Sanctions, 459 Organizations from 20 countries.

We urge President Macron and the French Government
1. To prevent millions of dollars of gas revenues reaching the Myanmar military criminal junta by refusing to authorize TotalEnergies’ use of exemptions to EU sanctions.
2. It is imperative that the French government continues to support the Myanmar people’s efforts to end the brutal military dictatorship and build a federal democracy and stop TotalEnergies from funding genocidaires.
President Macron must listen to his own lawmakers and officials and stop capitulating to a corporation that has demonstrated a willingness to disregard the Myanmar people and fund a military junta that is actively engaging in genocide and crimes against humanity.
