Earth Day

This landing page contains events, infographics, petitions, and artworks for GM4MD’s Earth Day Campaign (4/16-4/24).

Mission

GM4MD’s 2021 Earth Day Campaign aims to raise awareness of how the Myanmar military junta’s notorious penchant for the destruction of the environment for capital gain has put Myanmar in grave danger of a climate crisis.

Why the Myanmar Military Coup is a Climate Change Issue?

Campaign Plan

4/16 #BoycottChevron 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.

-------

Why?

We must stop the revenue stream to the military coup group to make sure the coup fails. We, therefore, encourage the United States Congress to sanction MOGE to formally stop such payment from Chevron.
