The Democracy for Burma (#D4B) campaign started in Sydney Australia in late February 2021.
All five of the campaign founders have lived and worked in Burma over the last 20 years. Since the February 1st coup, we have all seen our family, friends and work colleagues in Burma suffer at the hands of the brutal Burmese military (the Tatmadaw).
Democracy in Burma is no more. Burmese Senior General Min Aung Hlaing seized control of power, detained many of the democratically elected leaders and embarked on a brutal and bloody crackdown.
Our campaign comes in response to this injustice. We actively support pro-democracy activities, the civil disobedience movement (#CDM), the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (#CRPH), the newly formed National Unity Government (#NUG) and various networks that provide support and finance to people imperilled by the failed coup.
Since its formation, the campaign has undertaken multiple activities with very limited resources;
- Strategic Planning Meetings
- Live Webcast Events with Burma
- Social Media Messaging (Twitter, Facebook & Linkedin)
- National & International Media Engagement
- Television & Radio Interviews
- Campaign Media Production (Music, Videos & Images)
- Foreign Policy Analysis & Commentary
- Commentary & Op-Ed Publishing
- Protest Rally Support & Participation
- Stakeholder Support & Networking
- Engagement with the CRPH
- Protest Art Exhibition Planning
- Podcast Series Planning
- Alliance Building
- Lobbying (Nationally & Internationally)
