Protest Total in Burma

Wednesday, November 7th 2007 8:00AM - 6:00PM EST.

Join now in our TOTAL PROTEST through FAX and PHONE and EMAIL

Burma Global Action Network is holding a protest of Total through faxes and phone calls on Wednesday, November 7th, during the release of Total’s third quarter earnings.

Total Corp. holds a 31.2% share in the Yadana natural gas project. According to theBurma Global Action Network, Total pays large sums in gas royalties to the current military junta. Protesters are demanding that the corporation place these royalties in escrow for the legitimate elected government of Burma, headed by Aung San Suu Kyi. These funds are allegedly being pocketed by the military leaders.

In addition to the escrow, protesters will also be asking Total to increase contributions to humanitarian efforts in Burma through accredited non-government organizations.
Calls and faxes to the U.S. Headquarters office in New Jersey will be placed from 8 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (5:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time).

If you have more questions please email totalprotester@gmail.com.
