USA Solidarity Day of Action with Myanmar Workers! No US Dollars to the Myanmar Military!
Friday April 16th is a national day of action. Find out where you can join the protests.
Protests are planned across the United States in multiple cities to pressure Chevron to stop paying the Myanmar military (about $150 million annually) through MOGE (Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise) for the revenue from the Yadana Gas Pipeline. We, therefore, encourage the United States Congress to sanction MOGE to formally stop such payment from Chevron.
We must stop the revenue stream to the military coup group to make sure the coup fails.
Chevron has a free hand when it comes to doing business in Myanmar. It has never been stopped bringing hundreds of millions of dollars annually to Myanmar military dictators for nearly three decades and aiding brutal military oppression in Myanmar.
That is because MOGE (Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise) has never been sanctioned by the US. Even after killing 700 people in Myanmar and the U.S. is saying we cannot allow the Myanmar coup to be successful, MOGE still is not in the Biden executive order’s list of sanctioned entities nor in the current US congress sanctions bills on Myanmar.
We must change it and we must end Chevron's stranglehold hold on the US congress.
Let's start with a Global Day of Action against Chevron on April 16.
