Unilever: Disinvest from Myanmar. End rape&genocide of Rohingya.

At Unilever House, London, United Kingdom
On 8th March 2018 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Description

Why UNILEVER?

UNILEVER claims to embody principles that respect the dignity and rights of women and girls, especially in the marketing of Dove products. UNILEVER has been so successful in this that the company holds the title of “Impact Champion” appointed by UN Women as part of their campaign to advance women’s rights. As an Impact Champion UNILEVER proclaims that “UNILEVER aims to improve safety for women and girls in the communities where they operate.”

This is at odds with their $667 million investment in Myanmar where the military are committing systematic rape and other torture with total impunity as part of their genocide against the Rohingya people.

A new report,Rape by Command, by Kaladan Press Network was released on 21 February detailing Myanmar Army’s use of rape:

“Women and girls were raped, mutilated and killed for their very identity as Rohingya. Rape is being used as a weapon of genocide.”

Sisters of Rohingya have called for UNILEVER to divest: https://sistersofrohingya.wordpress.com/

UNILEVER is one of the biggest foreign investors in Myanmar and has the power to impact directly on the actions of the government. By withdrawing from Myanmar, UNILEVER can reduce the funds available to the military and encourage other corporations to put people’s lives before profits.
