Burma Labour Solidarity Organization (BLSO) new website launched

Again we are very proud to have been commissioned by Burma Labour Solidarity Organization (BLSO) to design and build a new website for their amazing organisation in Mae Sot Thailand.

Located on the border with Burma in the Thai town of Mae Sot, the Burma Labour Solidarity Organization (BLSO) began its work assisting migrant workers from Burma in 2000.

The burmesemigrantworker.com website is a gateway for understanding the plight of Burmese Migrant Workers working in Thailand, specifically along the Thai/Burma border. Further, we are introducing to you the Burma Labour Solidarity Organization (BLSO) who assists these workers and their families. This website also provides an opportunity for you to help.

The group was created by several young Burmese refugees, who had fled to Thailand as political  or economic refugees. They had four goals:

  • train workers on their employment rights
  • advocate for workers in the Thai courts,
  • help workers organize and form unions,
  • run schools for workers children

Migrants on the Thai/Burma border still need these services. There are 4 million Burmese migrant workers living near the border attracted to the textile, garment  and other factories in Mae Sot.

But conditions are appalling. Some factories have over 1000 employees who are virtually prisoners  living behind  metal gates, high walls with barbed wire, and CCTVs tracking their movements.

If you require further information, please write to burmesemigrantworkers@hotmail.com

On behalf of all those we are assisting, “Jay Zuu Tin Bar Taae” Thank you in Burmese.
