What is Early Day Motion 1545, "Political and Security Situation in Myanmar"?

EDM 1545 was tabled in the British Parliament which calls for the British Government to support the people of Myanmar by:

  • Sanctioning military companies

  • Building a global arms embargo

  • Supporting referring Burma to the International Criminal Court (ICC)

  • Joining the genocide case at the International Court of Justice

The higher the number of MPs supporting the EDM is, the more it demonstrates a strong parliamentary support for the cause for Myanmar. A strong support would increase the chance of the EDM being debated upon in the House of Commons.
