Petition calls on Cloudflare to stop services for the Myanmar military

Cloudflare provides website services for the military-controlled Ministry of Home Affairs and Myanmar police force. Cloudflare protects and shields the websites of the security forces that are attacking, injuring, and killing young people peacefully protesting on the streets of Myanmar.

... No company which has a client such as the Myanmar military, which is holding coups and is involved in genocide, can claim to have any kind of credible human rights or social responsibility policies... Cloudflare continues to protect the websites of the Myanmar military as it executes its ongoing genocide of the Rohingya people as well as its atrocities against other ethnic minorities, most notably the Kachin, Shan, Rakhine, and Karen.

In December 2018 Burma Campaign UK placed Cloudflare on its "Dirty List" of companies linked to Burma's military. In the past, Cloudflare has defended providing services for the website of Myanmar army chief Min Aung Hlaing. According to the company, it only stopped protecting the website of Min Aung Hlaing when Cloudflare deemed it was legally required to do so.
