The British government should 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.

Min Aung Hlaing and his military are terrified of this happening. British MPs who have called on the British government to support a referral have been banned from visiting Burma.

So far Min Aung Hlaing has paid no price for what he has done to the Rohingya. Thinking he can get away with anything, he has been stepping up attacks against other ethnic minorities in Burma.

Tell the British government to back the UN Security Council referring Burma to the International Criminal Court. 

If you live in the UK, please email your MP asking them to support Early Day Motion 1219, calling on the British government to support referring Burma to the International Criminal Court. (An Early Day Motion is a kind of petition that only MPs can sign, and we know from experience they can influence the government).

If you live outside the UK, you can email Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt here.
