Human Rights in Burma
Burma's State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) came into power to restore order and enable multiparty elections, but has since been accused of violating human rights and preventing democratic rule.
In an effort to end the SLORC's control over Burmese politics, economy, media and culture, grass-roots organizations around the world have joined forces to convince companies that economic support of the Burmese military is not acceptable. Pepsi and Mitsubishi are tops on the "companies to be boycotted" list.
