Burma/Crisis Campaign Update 10/11/10

Following reports of the escalating hostilities on the Thai-Burma border and at least 10,000 people seeking refuge from Burma in Thailand, the Burma/Crisis Response Team met yesterday.

Since then the following work has been done (thanks to those involved).
  • A blog on the current situation added to the 'What next for Burma?' feature page online:
  • An email to the Office of Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd outlining our calls and asking him to speak out publicly on the situation (along similar lines to the blog).
  • A hookup with activism/CCT about next steps/requirements in terms of public mobilisation (including preparing key points, action and talking to groups we have worked with on Burma about plans).
  • We are also continuing our media and fundraising work on Burma.

In addition to this, we are doing what we can to work with the IS and other sections to expand our response to a regional one to maximise our impact.
