    Title: Albert Einstein Institution
    Description/subject: "The Albert Einstein Institution is a nonprofit organization advancing the study and use of strategic nonviolent action in conflicts throughout the world. We are committed to the defense of freedom, democracy, and the reduction of political violence through the use of nonviolent action. Our goals are to understand the dynamics of nonviolent action in conflicts, to explore its policy potential, and to communicate this through print and other media, translations, conferences, consultations, and workshops."... Downloadable books on this site include: There Are Realistic Alternatives by Gene Sharp: "There Are Realistic Alternatives is a short, serious introduction to nonviolent struggle, its applications, and strategic thinking. Based on pragmatic arguments, this piece presents nonviolent struggle as a realistic alternative to war and other violence in acute conflicts. It also contains a glossary of important terms and recommendations for further reading." 54 pp. 2003" Languages available: English, Arabic ....198 Methods of Nonviolent Action" "Practitioners of nonviolent struggle have an entire arsenal of "nonviolent weapons" at their disposal. Listed are 198 of them, classified into three broad categories: nonviolent protest and persuasion, noncooperation (social, economic, and political), and nonviolent intervention." Languages available: English....On Strategic Nonviolent Conflict: Thinking About the Fundamentals by Robert Helvey: "On Strategic Nonviolent Conflict delves into the question of how to build a strategy for nonviolent struggle. Covering a variety of topics--such as ways to identify a movement's objectives, preparing a strategic estimate for a nonviolent struggle, and operational planning considerations--this publication contains insights on the similarities between military and nonviolent strategy. It represents a major new contribution to this field of study. Additional topics covered in the book include psychological operations and propaganda, contaminants that may affect the efficiency of a nonviolent movement, and providing consultations and training for members of movements and organizations".... From Dictatorship to Democracy by Gene Sharp: "From Dictatorship to Democracy is a serious introduction to the use of nonviolent action to topple dictatorships. Originally published in 1993 in Thailand for distribution among Burmese dissidents, this booklet has since been translated into seventeen different languages and spread worldwide.". 88 pp. 2003....The Anti-Coup by Gene Sharp and Bruce Jenkins: As coups are one of the primary ways through which dictatorships are installed, this piece details measures that civilians, civil society, and governments can take to prevent and block coups d'état and executive usurpations. It also contains specific legislative steps and other measures that governments and non-governmental institutions can follow to prepare for anti-coup resistance". 64 pp. 2003....The Role of Power in Nonviolent Struggle by Gene Sharp: "Nonviolent action . . . is capable of wielding great power even against ruthless rulers and military regimes," writes Sharp, "because it attacks the most vulnerable characteristic of all hierarchical institutions and governments: dependence on the governed." Abstracted from Sharp's classic three-volume work, The Politics of Nonviolent Action, this monograph summarizes the core concepts behind the technique of nonviolent struggle." 19 pp. 1990, 1994.Languages available: English, Arabic, Burmese, Russian, Spanish....National Security Through Civilian-based Defense by Gene Sharp" "This publication offers an introduction to civilian-based defense.

"De website "Actions Birmanie" heeft als ambitie de sensibilisering van het Belgische publiek inzake de Birmaanse situatie waar het volk al bijna 40 jaar lang ontzegd wordt van enige democratische inspraak en repressief onderdrukt wordt door een militaire junta. De website geeft een nadere verklaring van de politieke en economische factoren op het Birmaanse toneel en tracht aan ieder de mogelijkheid te geven om de Birmaanse democraten en hun leider Mevr. Aung San Suu Kyi (Nobelprijs voor de vrede 1991) een helpende hand te bieden in hun pacifistische strijd voor het herstel van de democratie. Namelijk: -door het verstrekken van informatie aan de toeristen die zich in dit land wensen te begeven. -door het informeren van het grote publiek van de akties ondernomen door "Actions Birmanie". -door het aanklagen van de aanwezigheid van ondernemingen zoals TOTALFINA die de repressieve junta ondersteunen.

It attempts to highlight the political and economic factors at stake in the Burmese crisis and to suggest means of actions to help the Burmese democrats and their leader Aung San Suu Kyi (Nobel Peace Prize 1991) in their non-violent struggle to restore democracy. These actions are, for instance - To inform tourists who wish to visit the country - To denounce the presence of companies like TotalFinaElf, whose investment and presence reinforce the power of the junta - To inform the public of steps taken at home to relay the message of Burmese democrats It presents the initiatives of different groups working for Burma..."

    Title: Birmania Campaign (Italia)
    Description/subject: Birmania Campaign è un'idea che nasce dal contatto con la comunità birmana di Londra. L'Inghilterra infatti, anche per ragioni storiche coloniali, è uno dei principali nodi del network mondiale che lotta per la democrazia in Birmania. Un network formato da migliaia di persone che hanno scelto di vivere fuori dal proprio paese di origine, ma non solo. Perché ad accogliere la vicenda birmana c'è la sensibilità del mondo che sta a guardare. E a Londra l'incontro di questi due mondi così diversi si traduce in azioni concrete, in iniziative, manifestazioni, rumore che porta la vicenda nell'agenda politica inglese. Quando alcuni mesi fa iniziò la campagna 64 words for Aung Suu Kyi, il messaggio di Gordon Brown per la liberazione della leader fu uno dei primi ad arrivare.

    Title: Democratic Party for a New Society (DPNS)
    Description/subject: "Building a democratic society based on freedom, national reconciliation, social justice, equality and human rights. The Democratic Party for a New Society (DPNS) was formed in October 1988 in order to continue Burma's unfinished democratic struggle, which was suppressed by the brutal military regime. The DPNS, with a large support base amongst the youth, including students, has played a vital role in 1990s. With its firm objectives, the DPNS demanded that the military regime, the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC), must allow for the formation of an interim government, the fair and free multi-party elections and fundamental democratic rights. Many young people shared their aspirations with the DPNS and it became the second largest party in Burma, approximately 250,000 members and more than 120 branch offices countrywide. The DPNS was the second largest party next to the National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, though it allies with the NLD, and is closely working for its political campaigns. The DPNS along with the students unions, supported Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's civil disobedience campaigns and assisted strengthening the NLD's election campaigns. Despite the DPNS as a strong grassroots supported party, the party decided rather to favor the NLD for a landslide victory and not split votes between the NLD and the DPNS. After the 1990 election, the military regime mainly targeted the DPNS and severely suppressed the party's political activities by arresting a number of its members, approximately 1,500 of its core members, included the party leaders were detained. Many of the party members were sentenced to long prison terms with hard labors. Until now, about a hundred are still behind bars in various prisons throughout Burma. As a result the DPNS Central Committee made a decision to move its headquarters into the liberated area along the Burma-Thailand border in order to continue its struggle against the military regime. The party reestablished its political headquarters in November 1991 at Manerplaw near the Burma-Thailand border where many democratic organizations and the ethnic armed forces were stationed and were fighting against the military regime. Later, the party joined and became an active member of the Democratic Alliance of Burma (DAB), and the National Council of the Union of Burma (NCUB). The Party leaders took up various leading roles in those organizations. Currently the DPNS is working to strengthen civil society inside Burma, advocating for democracy and human rights in Burma while continuing to secure its ethnic and international allies. At the same time, the DPNS is building up the capacities of party members with educational and professional trainings (organizational and management skills; policy studies; public administration; and international relations and diplomacy) to be a competent professional political party in the future Burma."

ERI's staff has gathered a vast body of valuable, rare information about the state of the military regime's war on its peoples and its environment. Through gathering testimonies, grassroots organizing, and distributing information through campaign work, the Burma Project has made a significant contribution to human rights and environment protection in Burma. Where possible, we link our grassroots fact-finding missions and community organizing with regional and international level advocacy and campaigning. We work alongside affected community groups to prevent human rights and environmental abuses associated with large-scale development projects in Burma. Currently, the Burma Project focuses on large-scale dams, oil and gas development, and mining. We share experiences and resources with local communities, as well as provide assistance relevant to community needs. Over the past 10 years the Burma Project has raised awareness about the alarming depletion of resources in Burma and their relationship to a vast array of human rights abuses, as well as the local, national, and regional implications of these practices."...Sections on Dams, Mining, Oil & Gas and Other Areas of Work.

    Title: Sasana Moli - International Burmese Monks Organization
    Description/subject: "Mission Statement background Burmese monks from all around the world established the International Burmese Monks Organization (IBMO) in October 2007 under the leadership of two prominent Burmese Buddhist monks, the late Venerable U Kovida and Venerable U Pannya Vamsa. Following the September 2007 street protests in Burma, many Buddhist monks were arrested, disappeared, beaten and even killed. During the crackdown, monks and nuns inside Burma asked monks living outside of the country to continue to their struggle. They asked the IBMO to raise international awareness about Burma’s political struggles. Inside Burma, there is no freedom of speech. To speak out against human rights abuses, to speak out against dictatorship, or to speak out for common human decency, as the Buddhist faith demands, is to invite attack at the hands of the military junta. The IBMO travels the globe in order to provide a voice for our monks and nuns inside Burma who are denied this right. We try to teach others about both the beauty and the harsh realities of military control inside the closed country. Monks are not politicians but is their duty to help relieve the suffering of all the people of Burma. The Buddha gave ten rules for kings to ensure that kings did not harm their subjects. Burma’s generals violate all of these rules every day. According to IBMO Chairman, the Venerable U Pannya Vamsa, the roots of Burma’s crisis are in the military's refusal to hand over power in 1990 to leaders elected in general elections. The IBMO works alongside the Burma democracy movement to lobby international governments to pressure the junta to commence a real dialogue with democratic opposition leaders including the Nobel Peace Laureate, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Additionally, IBMO partners with the Burmese Diaspora, grassroots advocacy groups, and ecumenical and peace organizations to support direct advocacy efforts on behalf of the Burmese people, such as media interviews, lectures, and testifying before legislators. The IBMO also supports the courageous work of monks and nuns inside Burma. Throughout Burmese history, monks have played a significant role in maintaining peace in our society. The Burmese military dictatorship has total disregard for the welfare of its people. The junta provides no proper education, health care or other public services. People are forced to turn to the monasteries for help. Monks witness the desperate needs of the people every day and in September, they rose up together to answer these needs. Today, monks inside Burma are working desperately to feed and clothe Cyclone Nargis victims taking shelter in monasteries throughout Southern Burma. The IBMO raises funds to send directly to these monks inside Burma to buy rice, medicine, and other much-needed relief supplies..."

    Title: The Best Friend
    Description/subject: "The Best Friend was founded in 1999 as The Best Friend Group of Literature, by two concerned monks with the purpose of encouraging people to become more educated, aware and active in the struggle for peace and freedom in Burma. The main belief is that education can open up people’s ears and eyes and is THE way to eradicate poverty. At one point, The Best Friend operated fifteen libraries inside Burma. The libraries provided both monks and laypersons access to uncensored information and literature. Apart from that, they were meeting places where people could discuss freely. The Best Friend also teaches languages, such as English, French, Japanese and Burmese. The Burmese military regime has been closely monitoring and controlling the activities of politically active people, especially since the 2007 Saffron Revolution. Many of the members and volunteers of The Best Friend were forced to leave Burma to avoid persecution. Several people, also monks, were arrested and are currently imprisoned. Simply for the crime of providing information and discussing about politics and freedom. Today, only three of the fifteen libraries are still in operation. King Zero and Ashin Sopaka, the founders of The Best Friend, moved to the Thai border town Mae Sot and opened the first Best Friend Library in Thailand in 2008. Apart from Thailand, The Best Friend has spread to many other countries in the world and has now active groups in The Netherlands, in Switzerland and Canada. It is legally registered as The Best International e.V. in Germany and is active raising awareness about the situation in Burma and giving information to people who wish to support the organization. From its new base in Thailand, The Best Friend is developing projects supporting the many Burmese refugees in the area. In 2010, the Mobile Health Care Program was launched and the Relocation Project – to help illegal refugee families move away from the Mae Sot rubbish dump – was set up. The Best Friend also offers many classes, such as English language classes, computer and sewing courses, Dhamma teachings and children’s classes. All teachers work voluntarily and all classes are free of charge..."

This week Burma Issues looks at the security of livelihood and living with military operations in these areas] SECURITY OF LIVELIHOOD; ACTIVITIES OF SPDC TROOPS; LIVING WITH KARENNI TROOPS; CEASE-FIRE GROUPS - Villagers in this area are clearly facing a multitude of problems that affect their ability to survive. The continued pressure on villagers due to the armed conflict contributes to this. Fear and distrust caused by abuse of power is evident. While villagers continue to be pulled between the Burmese military and the KNPP, mistrust and fear will permeate the lives of villagers. While the limited aid that does reach these areas, continues to be administered through the military, corruption will continue to occur and the people who are most in need of the aid will continue to be denied it. Basic services such as education and healthcare are seriously lacking. Treatable diseases are killing villagers, and both students and teachers are facing difficulties to implement basic education."...BURMA’S POLITICAL PRISONERS IN THE CONFLICT ZONES: "In August 2003 Burma Issues and Altsean-Burma will release a report, "Uncounted: Political Prisoners in Burma’s ethnic areas".

Nowhere are these two concepts more evidently in conflict than in military ruled Burma where the government exports rice, beyond its means, to generate income for its ruthless military, while its farming population produce the rice, amid traditional forms of farming and with a respect for its integral part to their belief system..."...SARS, SADDAM AND THE FORGOTTEN DISEASES...RESPONSES FROM THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY WHAT DO ALL SIDES NEED?

        Description/subject: LOOKING TO IT’S NEIGHBOURS: BURMA’S NEW PATH TO ACCEPTANCE "The US, Britain and the EU have recently issued renewed calls for Burma to show concerted efforts for political change or face increased sanctions; India, China and Thailand have welcomed with warm embraces an influx of state visits from the Burmese military leaders which has resulted in greater cooperation and economic agreements. It is little surprise then that the Burmese junta seem to be embracing closer economic and trade cooperation with their neighbours, opting to go without the wests support or acceptance, opting for international legitimacy through those that don’t impose the strict demands for resolving human rights abuses. Can it work? Is it a new tactic that shows foresight and cunning?..."...SURVIVAL WITHIN DIVISION "...Before 1997 the people here lived freely, Burmese troops occasionally arrived in their villages but the area was fully controlled by the KNU (Karen National Union). Some Karen villagers from northern Tavoy areas immigrated or fled to this area because of the Yadana gas pipeline project and the Ye-Tavoy railroad construction. Since the people were forced to stay in forced relocation sites, they have been facing difficulties with earning their living because of Burmese troops’ restrictions. They became targets of torture and execution. Daily survival, to be safe from Burmese troops suspicion, is a daily challenge. Forced labour becomes a regular task for the people although the Burmese military government has pretended to stop forced labour due to ILO pressure. They also have to pay various kinds of extortion..."...RESOLVING CONFLICT THROUGH PEACE "...The roots of the conflict in Burma has not just started with the present militarisation, but has started since the period of colonialisation and entering into Burma’s first democratic era. Therefore it lies with attitudes and prejudices within the society. That’s why it is important for the society to look at the root causes of the long conflict and have the courage to carry out the significant social changes needed to rid the country of those deeplying roots..."...News Briefs: Panicked withdrawls from Rangoons banks; Hunger strike in Dhaka.

Whether the SPDC gets one dollar or one billion dollars from outside investment, Ivanhoe, like many other international company’s, is contributing to human suffering and injustice by simply associating themselves with the Burmese government. They wrongfully support a dictatorship that has no regard for human dignity or economic progress among its own people. In the statement from their website, Ivanhoe has been able to tactfully twist their words around so that they can present the illusion that they are not guilty of the accusations they face. Sadly they are. And they are able to do it with a clear conscience, thinking only about profits, capital gain and economics. In the end why does everything always revolve around economics?"...REFORMING EDUCATION: WHEN REALITIES HIT THE WORLD "...The plights of youngsters along the border and inside Burma has posed a critical question as to whether it is necessary to maintain the nonfunctional British colonial and SPDC indoctrinated education system or should it come to an end by replacing it with a new democratic education system that highlights the needs of the youngsters with emphasis on creativity and critical thinking ability"...WHEN YOU’RE NOT WELCOME "...Why should Thailand be concerned about sending Burmese nationals back across the border? The bottom line is that Thailand sees them as a financial burden, therefore easily expendable in their persuance of trade, tourism and development with Burma. Recently Thailand and Burma announed four mega projects in Burma to be built by Thai companies. These include a hydroelectric dam on the Salween River, a coal mine, a port project in Tavoy and the Mae Sot to Rangoon highway. In January PTT Exploration and Production Plc, the Thai oil and gas company whose projects include the Yadana and Yetagun gas pipelines, announced a planned investment of 59.8 billion baht over the next 5 years. 38 percent of which will used to fund existing major projects which include the two gas pipelines in Burma..."...Crackdown Countdown: "Burma orders all border checkpoints with Thailand to be closed after an incident where Burma accused Thailand of shelling Burmese territory in support of a raid by a Shan ethnic armed group..."...News Briefs: Rebel leader offers conditional surrender; Nuns arrested for protest; Naga rebels declare end of war with India.

        Description/subject: HUMAN RIGHTS: Toungoo's Suffering: During the past monthhas been enlarged. More people have been driven from their homes and are now suffering from exposure to the cold and from starvation...SOME RECENT ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES IN BURMA...POLITICS: the real problem facing the peo-ple of Burma is not Slorc. The prob-lem in Burma is a system which al-lows any individual and/or group to have such total control over every as-pect of life without being accountable to the people. Removing Slorc from power will, therefore, not guarantee an improvement in the situation, al-though it will be a very important first step. The system and mentality which makes such abuse of power possible, itself must be totally changed and re-placed with new political, economic and social systems which will elimi-nate chauvinism of all kinds, and al-low peace and justice to flourish. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, as head of the National League for Democracy (NLD), and as the people's choice of leader for the democratic movement, is in a unique position to help bring about these changes. In his open letter to her written in October - Chinland; Rohingyas...THEIR OWN DEMOCRACY STYLE [critique of US global activities] - "...It is worth noting that America, which credits itself with the moral authority to behave as the world's po-liceman, has forged a negative place in many less developed nations through its destructive environment policies, its perpetuation of negative attitudes to people of other cultures as well as by sheer force when their own interests have been threatened..."

        Title: "Burma Issues" November 1995 (Vol. 5, No. 11)
        Date of publication: November 1995
        Description/subject: HUMAN RIGHTS DOCUMENTATION: SO WHAT? - " 1) Human rights abuse, from institutionalized racial discrimination to summary execution is a systematized, persistent and pervasive reality in Burma today, as it has been for decades 2) The political will to create or enforce meaningful international systems to address individual instances of human rights abuse simply does not exist, and for the time being, seems not to be developing. 3) This ubiquitous abuse oc-curs in a context of political and economic repression, and is in fact yoked irremovably to the political and economic aims of those who hold military power. • 4) The concrete exposition of these aims and strategies should be the primary goal of human rights reporting and activism. Human rights abuse documentation must illustrate in the best detail possible the premeditated and institutionalized structures of abuse. • 5) Exposed, this relationship between individual events and the larger context of repression of fundamental rights and freedoms for political and economic advantage will also reveal the systematic (rather than merely frequent or wide-spread) nature of oppression. It is these systematic elements — laws, policies, programs, economic and political structures, which will be the targets of local, national and international campaigns. Within these campaigns, individual cases of rape, torture or disap-pearance can serve as impor-tant rallying points for moral outrage and solidarity within Burma and among the peoples of Burma and other lands. These five points call for a shift in perspective, but also call for creative and intelligent analysis of the data coming out of Burma. For interna-tional campaign groups which have to wade through mountains of reports to get to the information they need, a new approach modeled on the con-cepts above may streamline corporate and government boycott campaigns. For those hoping for justice inside Burma, building such an approach may help to rectify the ugly reality that whatever legal system may exist in rural Burma does not seem ready, willing, or able to try individual claims of abuse on evidence. Ulti-mately it is only the type of documen-tation described here which will have the capacity to endure the long, long term struggle for peace and justice"...UNOCAL, BURMA, AND CANADA...Ye-Tavoy Railway Revisited...WHERE THE TREES GO...NO PEACE IN CHINLAND...SENDING REFUGEES HOME...NEWS BRIEFS: HUMAN RIGHTS; POLITICS; ECONOMICS

      Description/subject: Edito: Au cours du mois de septembre, le régime a donné de nouveaux signes d’ouverture. Le plus surprenant d’entre eux fût la décision du Président Thein Sein de suspendre le projet de barrage de Myistone, situé sur un confluent du fleuve Irrawaddy, suite à une campagne d’opinion de grande ampleur emmenée par différents groupes de la société civile birmane. De nombreux journalistes, artistes, écrivains et hommes politiques birmans se sont ralliés à cette campagne appelée « Sauvons l’Irrawaddy ». Aung San Suu Kyi elle-même avait adressé une lettre ouverte au gouvernement à ce sujet. Thein Sein aurait donc « écouté la voix du peuple », comme le soulignait la leader démocrate lors de sa troisième rencontre avec Aung Kyi, le Ministre du Travail. La Birmanie serait-elle en train de changer ?

      Description/subject: EDITO A l'heure d'une répression sans précédent dans l'est de la Birmanie, la question d'une action du Conseil de sécurité des Nations unies dans ce pays demeure, plus que jamais, d'actualité. Dans cette perspective, Info Birmanie a accueilli à Paris, du 20 au 22 juin, une délégation du NCGUB (gouvernement en exil birman). Notre association a en outre soutenu les appels lancés par les organisations Altsean Burma (Thaïlande), Burma Campaign UK et US Campaign for Burma auprès d'ONG de dimension internationale et de parlementaires du monde entier (plus de 90 parlementaires français ayant à ce jour signé cet appel adressé au secrétaire général de l'ONU et aux ministres des Affaires étrangères des pays membres du Conseil de sécurité). Enfin, Info Birmanie a traduit et publié en français le rapport "Threat to the Peace : A Call for the UN Security Council to Act in Burma" ("Menace contre la Paix : Appel au Conseil de sécurité de l'ONU pour une action en Birmanie") commandité par les prix Nobel de la paix Vaclav Havel et Desmond M.

      Title: BURMA: SLIDING BACKWARDS FROM REFORM
      Date of publication: 18 September 2014
      Description/subject: The first nine months of 2014 have seen a backward slide in terms of reform.... • Instead of reforms to strengthen human rights, democracy and peace, the Parliament has fast-tracked anti-Muslim legislation and pro-investment laws, and adopted rules to undermine free and fair elections. • The regime has failed to fulfill its promise to release all political prisoners by the end of 2013. Instead, the number of political prisoners has risen since the beginning of 2014. • Peace talks between the regime and the ethnic armed groups are fragile and patchy. The Tatmadaw requires the ethnic groups to abide by the 2008 constitution, directly contradicting the ethnic groups’ demand for a federal union and a federal army. • Impunity, especially for crimes committed by the Tatmadaw, continues to be a serious problem for minorities in Arakan, Kachin, and Shan States. Civilians continue to be targeted by the Tatmadaw as the war in Kachin and Shan States continues into its fourth year. • Anti-Muslim and anti-Rohingya violence and hate speech has intensified, with security forces involved in many instances. • The census excluded those who identified as Rohingya. Those who gave in and identified as ‘Bengali’ are now being subjected to an oppressive ‘citizenship assessment’ process that may lead to deportation or lifelong internment in camps.

      Title: LAND CONFISCATION IN BURMA: A THREAT TO LOCAL COMMUNITIES & RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT
      Date of publication: 05 May 2014
      Description/subject: "Land confiscation is one of the leading causes of protest and unrest in Burma, having led to the forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of people in recent years. It also undermines Burma’s fragile peace processes... •The 2008 constitution and subsequent laws are used to legitimize arbitrary land confiscation, deny access to justice, and perpetuate an environment of impunity... • Land confiscation for profitable large-scale development and commercial projects enrich the military, state- owned enterprises, and regime cronies, but result in the loss of livelihood and human rights abuses for local communities... • Land confiscation often involves violence, resulting in grievous injury, to force people off their land, or to suppress resistance to land confiscation... • Benefiting from land grabs, linked in some cases to ethnic cleansing or war atrocities, poses a risk to foreign investors and increases their exposure to judicial claims... • Prevailing censorship and other institutional obstr uctions hinder access to accurate information required for due diligence processes. • It is in the interests of the international corpora te community to ensure that legislative and institution reforms include equitable and transpare nt land acquisition procedures and measures to protect communities from impunity... Since President Thein Sein took office in 2011, the regime has allowed unbridled land confiscation for infrastructure, commercial and military development projects... The 2008 constitution identifies the state as being the ultimate owner of all land in Burma. Antiquated laws such as the 1894 Lan d Acquisition Act give the regime the right to take o ver any land, making local people extremely vulnerable to forced displacement without any recourse to remedy. Given that an estimated 70% of the population depend on small- and medium-scale agriculture for their livelihoods, land confiscation has had a devastating impact."

      Title: BURMA’S FACADE: AN UPDATE ON CONFLICTS, DISPLACEMENT & HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
      Date of publication: 12 March 2013
      Description/subject: "This briefer, which covers the period from October 2012 to March 2013, includes the following developments: • The authorities continue to commit serious human rights violations against Rohingya in Arakan State, including extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detention, torture, the rape of women, and restrictions on religious freedom. The regime also tightens restrictions on freedom of movement, and refuses to consider citizenship rights for Rohingya. • From December, the regime dramatically intensifies military offensives against the Kachin Independence Army. The Tatmadaw uses fighter jets, helicopters, artillery, mortars, and cluster bombs during military operations. Tatmadaw attacks claim several civilian lives. • Over 115,000 predominately Rohingya IDPs remain displaced in Arakan State. Rohingya IDPs continue to endure terrible conditions in camps. Thousands of Rohingya boat people die during perilous journeys in search of safety in Southern Thailand or Malaysia. • Regime’s determination to stifle freedom of speech and freedom of assembly persists. In numerous cases, the authorities respond to peaceful protests with arrests and excessive use of force. • Severe restrictions continue to characterize Burma’s media environment, with the regime replacing its notorious Censorship Board with a similar body tasked with monitoring publications and suspending/revoking publishing licenses. • The USDP-dominated Parliament approves massive military spending, with over 20% of the total budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year allocated to military expenditure and only 4.4% and 3.9% to education and healthcare respectively. • Burma continues to rank poorly on international surveys measuring perceived corruption, risks posed to investors, and transparency in the financial sector. The regime’s push for the development of Special Economic Zones continues to adversely impact local communities.

      Title: NOT ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD: BURMA’S FACADE OF REFORM
      Date of publication: October 2012
      Description/subject: "When President Thein Sein took office on 30 March 2011, Burma ranked near the bottom of virtually all international indexes that measured adherence to civil and political rights, press freedom, corruption, and economic freedom. With a baseline so low, Thein Sein was able to undertake a series of initiatives that gave the appearance of reform but which, in fact, brought very limited benefits for the overwhelming majority of Burmese people. Thein Sein’s failure to stop human rights violations and to initiate fundamental legislative and institutional reforms effectively blocks Burma’s progress towards genuine democracy and national reconciliation. The regime has so far failed to meet the minimum benchmarks that the UN established to measure Burma’s progress toward democratization, national reconciliation, and respect for human rights. It is time for the international community to shape their policies vis-à-vis Burma based on the regime’s concrete progress (or lack thereof) towards implementing genuine reforms, without being swayed by Naypyidaw’s well-orchestrated public relations campaign. Truly democratic reforms must focus on halting impunity and implementing measures to prevent the recurrence of human rights violations. They must include: the unconditional release of ALL political prisoners; amendments to the 2008 constitution and laws not in line with international standards; the end of all military offensives in ethnic areas as well as the holding of time-bound genuine political dialogue with ethnic armed groups; and tangible steps towards the respect and promotion of human rights."

      Title: UNREST IN BURMA’S ARAKAN STATE: A CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS (UPDATED)
      Date of publication: 26 June 2012
      Description/subject: • The rape and murder of a 27-year-old Buddhist Rakhine woman and the murder of 10 Muslim pilgrims trigger deadly sectarian clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in Arakan State starting on 8 June. • According to the regime, as of 21 June, 62 people had died and over 2,000 buildings, including seven mosques and nine Buddhist monasteries, had been destroyed as a result of the unrest. However, various organizations say that the death toll might be much higher as a result of escalating attacks and reprisals affecting Muslim Rohingya and Buddhist Rakhine. • Regime imposes a curfew and a ban on public gatherings of more than five people in six of 17 townships in Arakan State. President Thein Sein declares an indefinite state of emergency which allows the military to take over administrative control of Arakan State. • World Food Program estimates that 90,000 people have been displaced due to the unrest. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees warns of a risk of a severe humanitarian crisis due to ongoing violence and poor conditions in IDP camps. • Bangladeshi authorities push back more than 2,000 Rohingya fleeing violence in Arakan State. Bangladeshi FM Dipu Moni says Bangladesh is already “overburdened” with Rohingya refugees and cannot take any more “under any circumstances.” • Regime warns journalists that they could be charged under existing laws, including the Emergency Provisions Act, if they publish inflammatory reports on the ongoing violence in Arakan State. • Daw Aung San Suu Kyi expresses concern over the handling of the situation by local Rakhine authorities, in particular their failure to dampen anti-Muslim sentiment. Daw Suu also calls on Buddhists to “have sympathy for minorities.” • International reactions: UN warns that discrimination against ethnic and religious minorities poses a threat to Burma’s democratic transition; US, UK are “deeply concerned” over the ongoing violence; EU welcomes the regime’s “measured response” to the crisis; OIC “condemns systematic acts of violence and intimidation against the peaceful Rohingya population.” • The authorities’ decades-long discriminatory policies and practices targeting Rohingya have reinforced the racial and religious animosity between the two communities in Arakan State. Rohingya have suffered restrictions on marriage, freedom of movement, and religious practice. In addition, the regime has routinely subjected Rohingya to forced labor, extortion, land confiscation, and other human rights abuses.

      Title: THE WAR IN KACHIN STATE: A YEAR OF MORE DISPLACEMENT AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES
      Date of publication: 08 June 2012
      Description/subject: • In the past year, the Tatmadaw has deployed nearly 25% of its battalions to Kachin State, escalating its war with the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and bringing further suffering to civilian populations in Kachin State and Northern Shan State. • Tatmadaw soldiers have constantly targeted civilians in Kachin State and Northern Shan States as part of their military operations against the KIA. Human rights abuses have included extrajudicial killings, rape of women, arbitrary arrests, torture, forced displacement, the use of human shields, forced labor, and the confiscation and destruction of property. All of these systematic abuses would be considered war crimes and/or crimes against humanity under international law. • The ongoing conflict has displaced about 75,000 people, including at least 10,000 refugees who crossed the border into China. Despite the severity of the situation, the regime has frustrated relief efforts, severely restricting humanitarian access to local and international organizations. • The KIA’s political leadership, the Kachin Independence Organization (KIO), has made repeated attempts to negotiate a lasting peace in Kachin State. However, the regime has rejected the KIO’s request to discuss long-term political solutions prior to a ceasefire agreement. BACKGROUND: 2008 constitution, 2010 elections, BGF, energy projects, and human rights abuses

The US says that Burma’s trafficking problem remains significant. • The oil and gas industry continues to attract foreign investors. New investment in Burma is also linked to regime cronies.

      Title: BURMA’S PARLIAMENT: A TOOL FOR INSTITUTIONALIZED OPPRESSION
      Date of publication: 28 November 2011
      Description/subject: • Despite the regime’s claim that an elected legislature was a crucial step towards the emergence of its “discipline-flourishing democracy,” the Parliament is turning out to be the regime’s key tool for institutionalizing oppression. • The pro-regime Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP)-dominated Parliament refuses to repeal the draconian laws that provided the basis for the imprisonment of several thousand political prisoners in recent years. • The refusal makes the adoption of the much-publicized “Labor Organizations Law” and “Peaceful Gathering and Demonstration Law” irrelevant as the regime is still able to invoke the blanket “security” provisions of draconian laws. • The Parliament’s second session repeats the sham parliamentary debates witnessed during the January- March first session. Important issues, such as national reconciliation and the ongoing conflict in ethnic areas are only marginally discussed. • During question time, regime ministers and officials go to great lengths to categorically deny human rights abuses and to justify repressive measures. • Ruling party and military MPs oppose the adoption of important proposals on the release of political prisoners and the improvement of detention conditions in jails across the country. Instead, they introduce new restrictive laws designed to limit political participation. • Debate and approval of the national budget remain off-limits to MPs because State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) Chairman Sr Gen Than Shwe approved the budget for the 2011-2012 financial year before Parliament convened on 31 January. • The laws that govern parliamentary proceedings, enacted by Than Shwe in October 2010, continue to severely restrict parliamentary debate and participation. • Censorship and lack of access continue to characterize the media environment during the Parliament’s second session. • Despite the regime’s claim that local Parliaments would provide some degree of legislative decentralization, most of the Division and State Parliaments fail to introduce or debate any legislation. • In a bogus attempt to show its commitment to reach a ceasefire with ethnic armed groups, the regime forms two parliamentary ‘peace-making’ committees. However, the committees fail to adopt any initiatives aimed at facilitating peace talks.

      Title: BURMA’S ECONOMY: MISMANAGEMENT AS USUAL
      Date of publication: 04 November 2011
      Description/subject: "• Following the nominal transition to civilian rule, the regime maintains the State Peace and Development Council’s (SPDC’s) oppressive economic policies. • The military continues to control the bulk of the budget, with no improvement in transparency. One quarter of the 2011-2012 budget is designated for the military. Additionally, the “Special Fund” law grants the Commander in Chief of the military access to unlimited discretionary funds without having to be accountable. • The regime maintains a dual exchange rate system in order to siphon off funds into private accounts, starving the national budget of official revenue and inflating the fiscal deficit. • A process of privatization that began in late 2009 has facilitated the transfer of key economic assets in the hands of cronies while lining the pockets of regime officials. The privatization has resembled a “fire sale” to cronies that include those blacklisted by various governments. Meanwhile, economic competition remains severely constricted. • Despite the suspension of the Myitsone dam project, numerous large scale infrastructure projects continue to spur tensions in ethnic areas, cause massive displacement, and threaten the environment. The projects are not subject to public oversight and provide little benefit to local communities or the economy as a whole. • As a result of increased foreign investment through large scale infrastructure projects, the fall of the US dollar, and the dual exchange rate system, the kyat has inflated in value, hurting export-oriented sectors. • The regime continues to confiscate land and ignore the property rights of Burmese citizens in favor of foreign investors and cronies..."

      Title: SERIOUS INTERNATIONAL CRIMES CONTINUE IN BURMA UNDER ‘NEW’ REGIME
      Date of publication: 13 October 2011
      Description/subject: "Since Thein Sein took office as Burma’s President on 30 March, the regime has continued to perpetrate crimes against humanity and war crimes with total impunity. Reports of serious international crimes have increased significantly in line with the escalation of the ongoing Tatmadaw offensives in Kachin, Shan, and Karen States. Women and children have been particularly vulnerable. Tatmadaw soldiers raped and killed women during their offensive in Kachin and Shan States. The regime also continued to recruit children into the military in order to offset the steady increase in desertions. In the past six months, the following crimes against humanity and war crimes have been documented: • At least 30 cases of rape and sexual violence perpetrated by military personnel. • Over 400 complaints of children recruited as child soldiers. • At least 35 civilians killed. • Systematic use of forced labor in ethnic areas. • Forced displacement during military attacks that targeted civilians. • At least 11 activists and media persons arbitrarily detained or imprisoned. • Over 100 villagers arbitrarily detained in Kachin and Shan State during “counter-insurgency” operations. • Continued use of torture. • Systematic persecution of Muslim Rohingya in Northern Arakan State..."
