Ask the Media: Why Aren't You Reporting on Conflict in Burma?
Are you as frustrated as we are that mainstream media in the US continues to ignore the growing conflict and human rights abuses in Burma? Did you know Burma's generals have been attacking communities in Northern Shan State, breaking a longstanding ceasefire and displacing 30,000 Shan civilians? Probably not by following mainstream media.
As part of our “Fight the Lies: Expose the Truth” campaign, we are asking our supporters to use social media to tell mainstream media to do their job and cover this important global issue.
2) Send mainstream media outlets Twitter and Facebook messages: Ask them why they aren’t covering the issue of Burma. We've even created several sample tweets and posts for you!
