PARLIAMENTARY FRIENDS OF BURMA
CFOB will continue to work closely eith the multi-party group of Canadian Parliamentarians called, Parliamentary Friends of Burma (PFOB).
Our intention is for PFOB to raise debate on Burma in the House of Commons, liaise with international Parliamentarians
that support democracy and human rights in Burma and to urge the Government of Canada to play a greater role in supporting
a transition to democracy in Burma.
CFOB will work with PFOB members to ensure that the Government of Canada is constantly reminded of its obligations
resulting from the parliamentary motion. CFOB will also organize information sharing with legislators from around the world who are
also urging their governments to take stronger actions to support democracy in Burma.
ELECTION STRATEGY In the event of an electionj in the fall of 2005 or early 2006, CFOB will
mobilize its cross Canada network to ensure that candidates across Canada from all parties are aware of the
situation in Burma and that Canadian want their MPs to speak up for human rights and democracy in Burma.
Please write you MP and ask them to join PFOB
