Why is Western Union doing business with Burma's military?

Western Union is one of the world’s biggest money transfer companies. They have more than half a million agents around the world where money can be transferred.


In Burma, they have chosen a bank controlled by the Burmese military as their agent.


Myawaddy Bank is a subsidiary of a giant military business conglomerate called Union of Myanmar Economic Holdings Ltd (UMEHL). Profits from Myawaddy Bank benefit the military.


Western Union is doing business with the military in Burma. The same military accused by United Nations investigators of committing genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity against ethnic minorities in Burma.


Tell Western Union to stop doing business with Burma’s genocidal military.
