Dear Friends of Burma,
Intrepid Travel has just informed the Australia Burma Council and the Burma
Office, unofficially, that following the lobby of the pro-democratic forces
in Australia, they have decided to suspend their operation in Burma until
such time as it is politically correct to be there.
As you may recall Amnesty International, Australia recently cancelled an
arrangement with Intrepid Travel because they were selling tours to Burma.
Intrepid make such decisions by giving all their staff a vote. The last
vote on Burma took place in 1996. Only 2 employees out of approximately 32
that voted did not want to sell tours in Burma.
While official figures will not be released until tomorrow, when Intrepid
will make a public statement, the tables have definitely turned.
Congratulations to all who took part in the debate.
Just another "drop in the ocean"
