Dozens of protesters gather outside Chevron offices around the country demanding the company suspend payments to the Myanmar militaryWASHINGTON, April 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy giant Chevron is under fire for its decision to continue to support the Myanmar military, which has killed more than 700 people, including at least 47 children. On Friday, half a dozen demonstrations took place in cities around the US organized by the International Campaign for the Rohingya, SumOfUs, and many other groups -- in San Francisco, LA, Houston, Denver, New York and Washington DC. Photos/videos of the DC event can be found here at the SumOfUs flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sumofus/albums/72157718943019609 Outside Chevron’s offices in DC, Chevron’s new DC lobbyist Craig Hall was depicted on a piñata which protesters took turns batting. A mobile billboard was parked outside Chevron’s office for several hours on Friday, shaming the company for their continued support of the brutal military regime. Simon Billenness, Executive Director of the International Campaign for the Rohingya said: “As the largest US investor in Myanmar, Chevron has for many years not just bankrolled the Myanmar military, but also served as the junta chief lobbyist and defenders in Washington DC.” Groups are urging Chevron, French energy giant Total, South Korea’s POSCO, and all other oil and gas companies operating in Myanmar to suspend payments made to the state-owned oil and gas company -- and instead place those payments in an escrow account where they will be released once democracy is restored. More than 94,000 people have signed petitions by campaigning groups SumOfUs and the International Campaign for the Rohingya. Billenness added: “The civil disobedience movement has been demonstrating outside the offices of oil companies like Chevron and Total in Yangon, and now we are bringing their struggle to Chevron’s chief lobbying office in Washington DC.” The US has already placed sanctions on several military Generals and a handful of military-run companies, but activists are now urging the US government to also sanction the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) -- the state-run company that is the main financial lifeline for the military. MOGE’s revenues are the largest source of foreign exchange available to the military, forecasting to bring in USD1.5 billion this upcoming year. Military leaders have anticipated sanctions, but probably not sanctions on gas revenues which were exempted in the 2000s and were a linchpin for the regime’s financial viability. If MOGE is sanctioned, it would also effectively force Chevron and Total to suspend payments to the military. Rewan Al-Haddad, a Campaigns Advisor for SumOfUs said, “The sanctions placed so far don’t go nearly far enough to create meaningful change. If we’re to have any impact on the military’s calculus, the US must sanction MOGE immediately and urge governments around the world to follow.” On Friday morning, SumOfUs parked a mobile billboard outside the Treasury Department urging the US Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen and the Director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control Andrea Gacki to place MOGE on the list of sanctioned companies.

Canada will donate $200,000 to the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award as a tribute to the late Prince Philip's "remarkable life and his selfless service," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Saturday. The announcement came as the scaled back official funeral for the Queen's long-time husband took place at Windsor Castle amid public health restrictions meant to protect against the COVID-19 pandemic. The Queen sat alone in the quire of St. George’s Chapel as she mourned Prince Philip, the man who had been by her side for 73 years and the longest serving royal consort in British history. Philip was a "devoted public servant whose contributions changed countless lives around the world, especially those of young people," Trudeau said in a statement. The donation to the Canadian branch of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award honours his commitment to the success of future generations, he added. “I encourage young Canadians to find out more about the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award," Trudeau said. "Whether you want to develop a new skill, give back to your community, or set out on an adventure, this program is as much a personal challenge as it is a global opportunity." The funeral at St. George’s Chapel paid tribute to both Philip's service in the British Royal Navy and his unwavering support for his wife the Queen. The pared down ceremony was limited to 30 mourner's inside the chapel, including the widowed monarch, her four children and her eight grandchildren. Everyone wore face masks and maintained physical distance or sat in family bubbles. "Certainly because of COVID there was perhaps a certain surreal quality about it but it was also very beautiful," said John Yogis, secretary of the Halifax branch of the Monarchist League. "The most touching aspect was to think about Her Majesty by herself." Yogis said seeing the Queen seated alone, a solitary figure after more than three quarters of a century with Philip by her side, gave him "goosebumps and sadness at the same time. It really is an era coming to an end." Yogis, also director of the Commonwealth Judicial Education Institute, called the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award one of the Prince's "most significant contributions to the Commonwealth." The program exposes youth to the "outdoors, the wilderness and the notion of service and citizenry," he said. Prince Philip served in the Royal Navy for more than 12 years and maintained close ties to the armed forces throughout his life. Service personnel had a significant role in Saturday's funeral tributes despite the attendance limit. Royal Marine Buglers sounded the Navy’s battle alert in honour of the Prince's military service as his coffin was lowered into the Royal Vault at St. George’s Chapel inside Windsor Castle. Hundreds of people — some clutching flowers or holding Union flags — lined the streets outside Windsor Castle to pay their respects, though road signs in the area warned against all non-essential travel. Many Canadians are expected to join royal watchers around the world in saying their final goodbyes, albeit virtually. Due to pandemic protocols, Canadians intending to pay their last respects will be limited to gathering in only small groups to watch the proceedings either on television or online. Canada will hold a national commemorative ceremony in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh at Christ Church Cathedral at 12:30 p.m. in Ottawa. In accordance with pandemic-related restrictions, no guests will be invited to attend the church service, and Canadians are asked to watch the broadcast and not congregate outside. The ceremony, which will include virtual tributes and performances, will be followed by a recital by the Dominion Carillonneur at the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. A gun salute will also be conducted as part of the national commemorative ceremony.
