with participants from the global travel trade industry held a World Responsible Tourism Day on November 14th. The Burmese Democratic Movement Association (www.bdmauk.org) organised a protest against tourism in Burma that is a major source of finance for the repressive regime. They called for a boycott of travel companies at the exhibition that were involved in tourism in Burma, such as Orient Express. Burma spends 40% of GDP on the army, in a war on its own people. Many of the facilities used by tourists have been built with forced labour.
