City of Palo Alto Passes Selective Purchasing Law
Released by ISBDA, October 20, 1997.
After detailed testimonies by activists about human right abuses
and narcotic conspiracy of the Government of Myanmar, the city council of
Palo Alto, California, has passed tonight a resolution that bans the city
doing business with the companies directly or indirectly doing business
with the military government of Burma. This is the fifth city in the
Silicon Valley area that enforces selective purchasing law against
companies doing business with the brutal military rulers of Burma.
