Following the announcement by TotalEnergies and Chevron to move out of Myanmar, the focus of the Blood Money Campaign shifted to the Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE). MOGE is under control of the military junta. Therefore all funds going to MOGE also go to the military.
Besides the general REPORTS page, this page dedicated specifically to #SanctionMOGE actions, was set up.
Open letter sent to shareholders of Chevron with 200,000 signatures!
On May 25th, 2022, Chevron will hold its annual shareholder meeting. That day will mark close of voting by Chevron’s shareholders on a resolution that highlights the oil company’s funding of the Myanmar military and urges it to adopt a policy of not doing business with governments complicit in genocide and/or crimes against humanity.
Target: 200 000 signatures!
Deadline: May 20th, 2022 (signatures will be forwarded to the Chevron company on May 21st)
The open letter below was submitted to the US Government to increase the pressure to implement strong sanctions on MOGE. It was signed by more than 220 000 individuals and 637 civil society organizations.
”Cut off the blood money by the People’s power” the monks of the Sangha Union said and also wished the people who are fighting to free themselves from the military dictatorship good health and safety.
Activists of the Yangon Revolutionary Force rallied with a banner saying “Military is broken”. Slogans calling for US sanctions on MOGE were chanted. The action took place not only in context of the Blood Money Campaign, but also of #GlobalMayDay2022.
