the butchers of Myanmar

The Myanmar junta is continuing to wage a campaign of terror, and tech companies like Apple and Google are enabling it by allowing apps that fund and support this murderous military.

Activists from Myanmar are urging the companies to remove these apps and they urgently need our help to stand with them.

Sylvia,

The Myanmar junta is continuing to wage a campaign of terror.

The junta has executed four rights activists including a democratically elected MP — the latest in a string of violence that has left over 2,200 people dead and over 800,000 displaced since the military’s attempted coup last year.

And tech companies like Apple and Google are enabling this crackdown by allowing apps that fund and support the murderous junta to operate from their app stores.

Activists from Myanmar are urging the companies to remove these apps, and they need people everywhere to stand with them.

Tell Google and Apple: stop supporting the Myanmar military’s brutal crackdown...

Apple and Google are allowing apps like Mytel and MRTV to run in their app stores. The military’s mobile network Mytel provides a significant funding source to the junta and its cronies, and a tool for military surveillance. The junta-controlled media network MRTV is a key platform for the spread of military propaganda, hate speech and disinformation.

Getting Mytel, MRTV and all other Myanmar military apps off the app stores will help starve the junta of revenue and an audience.

But it will only happen if there’s enough pressure. Add your name now and share this widely — let’s help the people of Myanmar stand up to this brutal military dictatorship.

Thanks for all that you do,
