Tell the British government to stop protecting the Burmese military

Despite the Burmese military committing horrific violations of international law, the British government is refusing to support the UN Security Council referring Burma to the International Criminal Court. A referral to this court means that they can investigate the crimes that have taken place and seek to prosecute those responsible.

Repeal the Unlawful Associations Act (1908)

The Unlawful Associations Act is used by the Burmese authorities to intimidate and arrest political activists. It is also most commonly used against members of ethnic minorities in Burma. Many political prisoners who were arrested during the period of direct military rule were charged under this act. Section 17/1 is the most commonly used section of this act.

Repeal Section 66 (d) of the Telecommunications Law

The Telecommunications Law was introduced in 2013 and since then it has been used repeatedly to restrict freedom of speech and expression. Defamation charges under Section 66 (d) of the law have been brought against reporters, politicians and social media users. Many people have been arrested for criticising the military, the government or merely posting on Facebook.
