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".

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.

      Description/subject: IVANHOES INVESTMENT IN THE CRACKHOUSE "...In conclusion, Ivanhoe Mines Inc. is in business with a corrupt and cruel government. 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 ?

La MOGE (Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise) ayant notamment émis une déclaration selon laquelle une mission scientifique sponsorisée par Total avait identifié en Birmanie des gisements de gaz et de pétrole encore inconnus.

    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. Tutu, qui expose les raisons d'une action du Conseil de sécurité en Birmanie. Notre association continuera dans les mois à venir à se mobiliser autour de cette question...SOMMAIRE I.

    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."

    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

    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..."

    Title: ETHNIC AREAS UPDATE: BURMA HEADS TOWARD CIVIL WAR
    Date of publication: 29 June 2011
    Description/subject: • Despite the 7 November election’s illusory promise of an inclusive democratic system, the situation in ethnic nationality areas continues to deteriorate... • In addition to the ongoing offensives against ethnic non-ceasefire groups, the Tatmadaw increasingly targeted ceasefire groups who rejected the regime’s Border Guard Force (BGF) scheme... • In Shan and Kachin States, the Tatmadaw broke ceasefire agreements signed in 1989 and 1994 respectively... • Ongoing fighting between the Tatmadaw and ethnic ceasefire and non-ceasefire groups displaced about 13,000 civilians in Kachin State, at least 700 in Northern Shan State, and forced over 1,800 to flee from Karen State into Thailand... • Civilians bore the brunt of the Tatmadaw’s military operations, which resulted in the death of 15 civilians in Northern Shan State and five in Karen State... Tatmadaw troops gang-raped at least 18 women and girls in Southern Kachin State... • Desertion continues to hit Tatmadaw battalions, including BGF units, engaged in military operations in ethnic areas... • Reports on the alleged use of chemical weapons by Tatmadaw troops surfaced during offensives against Shan State Army-North forces... • In February, in response to the Tatmadaw’s ongoing attacks in ethnic areas, 12 ethnic armed opposition groups, ceasefire groups, and political organizations agreed to form a new coalition - the Union Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC)... • The situation for residents living in conflict zones of ethnic States remains grim as the regime re-launched its ‘four cuts’ policy which targets civilians... • The situation is likely to continue due to Burma’s constitution and the recently enacted laws, including the national conscription law.

    Title: 100 DAYS OF BURMA’S PARLIAMENT: STRENGTHENING THE STATUS QUO
    Date of publication: 11 May 2011
    Description/subject: • In the months leading up to the convening of the Parliament, SPDC Chairman Sr Gen Than Shwe issues a series of laws designed to maintain the military’s grip on power. • On 31 January, the People’s Assembly and the National Assembly convene amid tight security in Naypyidaw for Burma’s first parliamentary session in 22 years. Many MPs complain about being subjected to detention-like living conditions. • The laws governing parliamentary proceedings gag MPs and restrict civilian access to the Parliament. The regime also bars domestic journalists and foreign correspondents from covering parliamentary proceedings. • Lack of genuine debate characterizes the proceedings. In the parliamentary question time, ministers brush off questions that deal with important issues and refuse to address the substantive issues raised by the MPs. • USDP and military-appointed MPs and the Speakers in both Houses of Parliament blocked 87% of the proposals submitted, including a proposal on national reconciliation. • USDP and military-appointed MPs prioritize the regime’s political agenda above the critical political and socio-economic issues that affect the daily life of the Burmese people. The Parliament approves resolutions to oppose economic sanctions and express gratitude to the SPDC. • After convening the Parliament, the regime continues to commit crimes against humanity and war crimes. Tatmadaw troops attack and forcibly displace hundred of civilians as part of their military offensives in ethnic areas. The regime also continues to arbitrarily detain and imprison dissidents.

    Title: BURMA 2011: STILL A MILITARY DICTATORSHIP
    Date of publication: 24 March 2011
    Description/subject: • Despite the convening of the newly elected Parliament, Burma’s ‘democratically-elected’ regime is nothing more than a disguised version of the military dictatorship that has ruled Burma for the past five decades... • The military-dominated Parliament has placed high-ranking SPDC officials at the top of the country’s political system... o SPDC PM Thein Sein is the President... o SPDC’s former third-in-command Shwe Mann and the junta’s Minister of Culture Khin Aung Myint are the Speakers of the People’s Assembly and National Assembly respectively... o Twenty-six of the 30 newly appointed cabinet Ministers (all men) are either retired military officials or outgoing SPDC Ministers... o All State and Division Chief Ministers are MPs from the USDP or the appointed military bloc... • SPDC Chairman Sr Gen Than Shwe ensures he will continue to “guide” Burma’s politics by naming himself the leader of a newly created State Supreme Council... • Than Shwe bypasses Parliament and issues a series of laws that are designed to maintain the military’s grip on power... • Parliamentary proceedings take place in a tightly controlled environment. SPDC-imposed procedures for MPs stifle genuine political debate and severely restrict media coverage. MPs denounce detention-like conditions in Naypyidaw... • The NLD steps up its activities in order to promote broad political participation across Burma. The pro-democracy party remains Burma’s best hope for genuine dialogue and national reconciliation... • The situation in ethnic nationality areas continues to deteriorate. The SPDC is targeting ceasefire groups that have rejected the junta’s Border Guard Force (BGF) scheme. Armed conflict between the SPDC Army and these groups has already displaced tens of thousands of civilians... • The situation for communities living in conflict zones is grim as the SPDC prepares to re-launch its inhumane ‘four cuts’ campaign... • The legal, constitutional, and ground realities of the post-election scenario do not offer evidence that justifies any softening of the existing EU Common Position. Measures must be taken to ensure there is no deterioration in the ethnic areas, particularly where ethnic opposition parties won seats... • The establishment of a CoI is extremely urgent. The creation of a CoI has a strong preventive value because it can hold the regime accountable for human rights abuses, deter future violations, promote respect for the rule of law, and obtain justice for the victims of these crimes.

    Title: BURMA 2010 ELECTION RECAP
    Date of publication: 26 November 2010
    Description/subject: Election Day; Reactions; Results; Final results; People’s Assembly results; National Assembly results..... Widespread evidence of electoral fraud, irregularities, threats, harassment, and lack of independent monitoring characterized Election Day and the days leading up to it... The election process was met by widespread condemnation inside and outside Burma, with the significant exception of ASEAN and China... In total, the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) won 883 (or 76.52%) of the 1,154 seats at stake in the election... The USDP’s overwhelming majority in both houses of Parliament, coupled with the 25% of the seats occupied by the military, means that the USDP/military bloc can unilaterally amend the 2008 constitution (which, for ordinary matters, requires the approval of over 75% of the representatives of both houses of Parliament). In addition, the USDP/military bloc can unilaterally elect Burma’s next President.

    Title: BEFORE AND AFTER THE ELECTIONS: THE CRIMES CONTINUE
    Date of publication: 16 November 2010
    Description/subject: "In the 48 hours after the SPDC’s rigged elections, over 25,000 civilians fled to Thailand after fighting broke out between the SPDC Army and a breakaway faction of the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army along a 150km stretch of the Thai-Burmese border. The fighting displaced thousands more on the Burmese side of the border. These incidents add to concerns that the regime will expand its offensive against ethnic nationality groups in Northern and Eastern Burma, and lead to even more crimes against humanity and war crimes. The regime may be relying on the sham elections and the “release” of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to distract international attention from the border situation and buy it time to launch more strikes against ethnic communities. Calling for the SPDC to act with restraint is ineffective, because the perpetration of serious international crimes is a fundamental part of its military strategy. In addition, the 2008 constitution, which will come into effect when the National Parliament convenes, guarantees the military immunity for its past misdeeds. While the international community took a “wait-and-see” position with regard to the junta’s planned elections, in the two months prior to the 7 November election, the following crimes were documented: * At least six extrajudicial killings. * Systematic use of forced labor in ethnic areas. * At least nine people, including two monks, were subjected to arbitrary imprisonment. * Systematic persecution of Rohingya communities. * At least three cases of rape and sexual violence. A UN-mandated Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma is the most practical step forward to prevent more crimes, obtain justice for victims, and provide the basis for national reconciliation and sustainable peace in the country..."

    Title: BURMA’S 2010 ELECTIONS: THE STORY SO FAR
    Date of publication: October 2010
    Description/subject: "This briefer shows that despite the SPDC’s repeated pledges for “free and fair” elections, indicators for election monitoring based on EU, UN, and OSCE guidelines point to the contrary. The SPDC election laws and conduct of the SPDC Election Commission have caused the dissolution of parties that won 84% of seats in the last election, and disenfranchised at least 1.5 million voters. LEGAL FRAMEWORK • The SPDC election laws are not in accordance with international standards and prevent the exercise of fundamental freedoms and political rights. • Election laws bar over 2,000 political prisoners from being members of political parties. The NLD and other parties would have had to expel their imprisoned leaders, such as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, to be eligible to participate. ELECTION ADMINISTRATION • The SPDC Election Commission has not acted in an independent, impartial, and transparent manner. • A number of political parties and candidates have been barred by the Election Commission’s discriminatory restrictions. • The Election Commission financial requirements and tight deadlines for candidate registration hindered the political parties’ ability to field candidates. • The Election Commission has canceled the polls in more than 3,400 villages in ethnic areas, disenfranchising around 1.5 million voters. ELECTION CAMPAIGN • The SPDC has limited the ability of political parties, candidates, and their supporters to campaign. Regime authorities have detained those who have spoken out against the polls. • Regime officials have harassed, intimidated, and coerced party candidates and their supporters and engaged in vote buying schemes. • The junta-proxy Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) has liberally used state resources and relied on state institutions, civil servants, and SPDC officials for the party’s campaign activities. MEDIA • The SPDC Censorship Board has unjustifiably limited the ability of independent media to report on election issues and developments. • State-owned media has tightly restricted media access of candidates and political parties. • State-run media have failed to provide sufficient information to enable voters to make an informed voting decision."

    Title: THE SPDC’S CRIMES CONTINUE: A UN COMMISSION OF INQUIRY IS STILL NEEDED TO PROTECT BURMA’S PEOPLE
    Date of publication: 28 September 2010
    Description/subject: • In March, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Burma Tomás Ojea Quintana said that the “gross and systematic” human rights abuses in Burma “were the result of state policy” and recommended that the UN consider establishing a Commission of Inquiry. • Following Ojea Quintana’s recommendation, Australia, the UK, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, the US, Canada, New Zealand, France, the Netherlands, and Ireland endorsed the establishment of a UN Commission of Inquiry on crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma. EU and Indonesian MPs also have endorsed the creation of a Commission of Inquiry as well. • Since the publication of the SPDC election laws in March, the regime continued to perpetrate crimes against humanity and war crimes with total impunity. These grave human rights violations underscore the urgent need for a Commission of Inquiry. • A Commission of Inquiry, in addition to opening a door for victims’ rights to truth and justice, also has a preventive value to discourage more crimes from being perpetrated. • In the six-month period between March and August 2010, the following SPDC war crimes/crimes against humanity were documented: **At least 15 extrajudicial killings. **Systematic use of forced labor in ethnic areas. ** Six hundred people were forcibly displaced in military attacks that targeted civilians. ** At least 14 people subjected to arbitrary imprisonment. ** At least eight cases of rape and sexual violence. ** Systematic persecution of Rohingya communities. ** At least two children were recruited as child soldiers, and another child was killed for resisting. • Ongoing military tensions with armed groups, including anger over disenfranchisement of some ethnic groups over the election, has increased the likelihood of escalated armed conflict and related serious crimes after the 7 November polls.

    Title: SPDC ELECTION LAWS STRANGLE DEMOCRACY
    Date of publication: 15 July 2010
    Description/subject: "Despite the SPDC’s repeated pledges for “free and fair” elections, the junta’s legal framework for the polls, including five laws issued in March and Directive 2/2010 issued in June, is repressive and undemocratic. The Election Commission Law empowers the SPDC to handpick the Election Commission, which presides over all aspects of the electoral process. Led by a former military judge, it is authorized to cancel elections in some areas. The Political Parties Registration Law effectively bans political prisoners (leaders of NLD, ethnic nationality parties and 88-Generation Students) from membership of political parties. The Assembly laws reiterate the ban on political prisoners, members of religious orders, and civil servants from standing for election, either as members of political parties or as independent candidates. The laws also ban members of religious orders and those serving prison sentences from voting. Directive 2/2010 imposes severe restrictions on political parties’ activities, including gatherings held at their own headquarters or branches"

    Title: SPDC ELECTION LAWS SET THE STAGE FOR SHAM ELECTIONS
    Date of publication: 26 April 2010
    Description/subject: "The following paper gives a concrete update since the last report ALTSEAN published on the electoral process in Burma [See ALTSEAN - Burma report on 2010 Elections : a recipe for continued conflict on: www.altsean.org/Reports/2010Electionsbis. php. ] It also explains how the regime is preparing itself for the day after the elections which are organized with only one aim: to ensure that the country will remain still hostage of the military for many more years to come.... Highlights: • The State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) issues five repressive election laws that will ensure that the polls held in Burma later this year will be neither free nor fair. • Some of the repressive provisions include: – Giving the Election Commission the authority to deny or delay elections in ethnic nationality areas for “security reasons”. – Excluding those who convicted of a crime and serving a jail term from being a member of a political party. – Forbidding those associated with armed opposition groups - and potentially including those associated with ceasefire groups that reject the SPDC’s Border Guard Force (BGR) ultimatum - from taking part in the elections. • The SPDC continues to place severe restrictions on freedom and expression and assembly. • In response to the unfair and undemocratic election laws, the National League for Democracy (NLD) announces that it will boycott the SPDC’s elections. • In the meantime, the SPDC prepares to transfer its authority to junta-backed political parties and sell state assets to its loyal cronies. • On the border, ethnic tensions escalate as ceasefire groups refuse to accept the SPDC’s ultimatum that their militaries become BGFs. • In early 2010, SPDC military offensives in Eastern Burma displace more than 4,100 villagers. • UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Burma recommends the UN consider establishing a Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the SPDC. 4 / • Regardless of how the elections are conducted, the SPDC’s constitution will perpetuate military rule, because it stipulates that: – The military occupies 25% of the seats in Parliament and controls 3 key Ministries; – The military has effective veto power over constitutional amendments; – The National Defense and Security Council further entrenches the military; – Basic human rights are still threatened..."

    Title: THE SPDC’S CRIMES CONTINUE IN 2010: A UNSC COMMISSION OF INQUIRY IS NEEDED TO PROTECT BURMA’S PEOPLE
    Date of publication: April 2010
    Description/subject: • Since the publication of our briefer “International crimes in Burma: the urgent need for a Commission of Inquiry,” in October 2009 the SPDC has continued to commit crimes against its own people. • In March, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Burma Tomás Ojea Quintana said that the “gross and systematic” human rights abuses in Burma “were the result of state policy” and recommended that the UN consider establishing a Commission of Inquiry. • In the first three months of 2010, the SPDC continued to perpetrate crimes against humanity and war crimes with total impunity, highlighting the urgent need for a UN Security Council-mandated Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma. • In the three-month period, the following SPDC war crimes/crimes against humanity were documented: *At least nine victims of extrajudicial killings. * At least four instances of forced labor. * An additional 4,100 people were forcibly displaced in military attacks that targeted civilians. * At least 11 people subjected to arbitrary imprisonment. * The continued use of torture. * At least one case of rape and sexual violence. * Systematic and widespread persecution of Muslim Rohingya communities. * At least two children were recruited as child soldiers.

    Date of publication: 03 February 2010
    Description/subject: * In the 18 months spanning July 2008-December 2009, SPDC military operations displaced at least 118,800 (43,800 refugees and 75,000 internally displaced persons) people in Eastern Burma alone. * Of this figure, at least 16,800 were victims of crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined under international law. * Much of the displacement was the result of the junta's program to secure military and political control over ethnic areas in the lead-up to the SPDC's planned elections this year. * Displacement is expected to increase as the regime intensifies pressure on ethnic groups resisting the elections that are predicated on a constitution designed to legitimize the military regime's political and economic subjugation of ethnic nationalities. * At the start of 2010, SPDC Army crimes against humanity and war crimes in Eastern Burma pushed 2,000 Karen into the jungles.

    Title: NEW US POLICY: AN ALIBI FOR REGIONAL COMPLACENCY
    Date of publication: 05 November 2009
    Description/subject: BURMA’S NEIGHBORS MISINTERPRETING US POLICY REVIEW... WHAT IS THE NEW US POLICY?... SPDC PLACATES NEIGHBORS... COMPLACENCY FUELS SPDC ABUSES: Political prisoners; Displacement; BGF ultimatum has fueled instability in border areas... SPDC THREATENS REGIONAL STABILITY: China; Bangladesh... OPPOSITION TO THE 2010 ELECTIONS GROWS... DAW SUU REACHES OUT TO THE SPDC... RECOMMENDATIONS..... • The new US policy on Burma, combining long-standing sanctions with high-level engagement, has been deliberately misread by Burma’s neighbors and used to justify greater tolerance of the regime’s escalating crimes against humanity and war crimes. The misrepresentation has: o Emboldened the SPDC’s sense that it can placate its neighbors through rhetoric instead of genuine reform; o Created a sense of complacency in the region that conditions in Burma are actually improving; and o Tacitly encouraged the SPDC to jail opposition leaders and persecute ethnic nationalities. • Essentially, the new US policy means: o “Pragmatic engagement”, aimed at achieving meaningful reforms, will supplement and not replace sanctions; o Discussions on easing sanctions will be possible only if significant advances on core human rights and democracy issues occur; and o The option remains of tightening sanctions on the regime and its supporters if the situation worsens. • Despite the hype over improvements in Burma, the facts reveal the opposite: o As of September, there was a record high of 2,211 political prisoners as a result of the SPDC’s intensified crackdown on political dissidents. The crackdown, coupled with the bogus trial of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, ensures that viable opposition candidates in the 2010 elections are locked up. o Escalating crimes against humanity and war crimes against ethnic communities have led to a sharp spike in displacement. • President Obama must use the ASEAN-US Summit in mid-November in Singapore to reinforce the key elements of the US policy on Burma. President Obama should utilize his Asia trip to draw in governments in the region, in particular China, onto the same page as the US and not the other way around. • In the wake of some governments’ rejection of human rights groups at the recent ASEAN Summit, President Obama must speak up forcefully in favor of human rights defenders and the vital role of an independent civil society. • US officials need to clearly articulate a set of benchmarks hinged on human rights and democracy to measure progress in Burma in the run-up to the 2010 elections. It is also critical to ensure: o The election law guarantees participation of all people, including political activists, as voters and candidates; o Changes to the constitutional article on amendments to remove an effective military veto and reflect common practice

    Title: GUILTY AS PLANNED
    Date of publication: 07 October 2009
    Description/subject: The SPDC’s sentence that extended Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest for another 18 months further demonstrates the military regime's ambitions to silence Burma’s greatest hope for peace and national reconciliation. The sentencing of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is a vicious part of the SPDC’s “roadmap” to ensure that the most viable pro-democracy candidates will be unable to run in the 2010 elections..... “Guilty as planned” covers the trial and sentencing of Daw Aung Suu Kyi, the recent SPDC crackdown on pro-democracy advocates, as well as the broad condemnation of the SPDC’s actions from the international community."• On 11 August 2009, following an 86-day sham trial, the military regime sentences Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to three years in prison with hard labor for allegedly violating the conditions of her house arrest. Shortly after the verdict’s announcement, SPDC Chairman Sr Gen Than Shwe commutes the sentence to 18 months to be served under house arrest. • On 2 October, the regime denies Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s appeal on her conviction, which effectively bars her from participating in the SPDC’s planned 2010 elections. • The sentencing of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is a vicious part of the SPDC’s “roadmap” to ensure that the most viable pro-democracy candidates will be unable to run in the elections. • UN Special Rapporteur on human right in Burma Tomás Ojea Quintana says that the continuation of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest was a “blow” to the SPDC’s roadmap. • In September, the number of political prisoners reaches a record high 2,211. Over the past 12 months, Burma’s military regime has sentenced 351 dissidents to prison terms, including 86 NLD members, 50 members of the 88 Generation Students group, and 25 Buddhist monks. • With a few exceptions, the the international community broadly condemns the trial and conviction of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.".... 1 DAW SUU CONVICTED; 2 Baseless trial, scripted verdict; 3 SPDC divided under pressure; 4 Climate of fear; 4 Roadmap to prison... 5 INT’L REACTIONS: 5 ASEAN; 6 Thailand; 6 Indonesia; 6 Malaysia; 6 Philippines; 7 Singapore; 7 Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam; 7 China; 7 India; 8 UN; 8 US; 9 EU... 9 THE LADY SPEAKS: 9 Dialogue; 10 Constructive engagement; 11 Sanctions, investment, tourism; 11 Humanitarian aid; 11 Role of the military... 12 TRIAL TIMELINE... 17 INT’L REACTIONS... 22 LEGISLATORS.

    Title: BURMESE UPRISING REDUX
    Date of publication: 07 August 2009
    Description/subject: August 8 marks the anniversary of the 1988 nationwide popular uprising against Burma’s military regime. The 1988 uprising represents the Burmese people’s ongoing struggle against the regime’s protracted economic mismanagement and political oppression... Twenty-one years later, the military regime’s misrule has turned Burma into: - One the world’s Least Developed Countries; - The world’s third most economically repressed country, and the second most corrupt; - The world’s third largest source of refugees and asylum seekers; - The worst internal displacement situation in Southeast Asia, and the fourth worst in Asia; - The country with the highest number of child soldiers; and - The top producer of opium and amphetamines in Southeast Asia and the second largest opium producer in the world... The SPDC’s promise of democratic reform, embodied in its “seven-step roadmap to democracy”, has translated into greater oppression of the regime’s opponents, with the number of political prisoners reaching a record high of 2,160... The expected outcome of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial could trigger a new wave of protests across the country, as she commands great trust and respect among the all of Burma’s people... The regime’s backlash against ethnic ceasefire groups’ refusal to surrender control of their armies and participate in the bogus 2010 elections has the potential to plunge Burma into renewed conflict.

    Title: ACTION NEEDED: BURMESE JUNTA THREATENS COMPREHENSIVE REGIONAL SECURITY
    Date of publication: 18 July 2009
    Description/subject: "Disturbing recent developments concerning evidence of the Burmese military regime’s close cooperation with the North Korean regime, including acquisition of long-range ballistic missile technology, must serve as an urgent wake-up call to members of the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF). It is time for the ARF, which brings together ASEAN member states and regional dialogue partners, to move beyond unconditional diplomacy and reduce the Burmese military regime’s capability to threaten the comprehensive security of the region. Action must include restrictions and greater regulation of transactions and entities implicated in weapons deals with the regime and its proxies. It is particularly crucial that those implicated, such as Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, and China, take effective steps to stem the flow of funds and technology needed for such deals. These sanctions are less likely to hurt ordinary Burmese who do not use the formal banking system because of prohibitive commissions and rules on retail customers..."

    Title: THE 14th ASEAN SUMMIT: LITTLE CHANGE DESPITE CHARTER
    Date of publication: 10 April 2009
    Description/subject: "ASEAN leaders’ promotion of the newly enacted ASEAN Charter as an instrument of change rang hollow at the 14th ASEAN summit because of the organization’s failure to effectively deal with the problems created by the Burmese military regime. The failure was glaring. In the weeks before the ASEAN summit, ASEAN Sec-Gen Surin Pitsuwan delivered promising statements and speeches that indicated significant change for the organization. Surin’s speeches were peppered with the terms “people-centered” and “people-caring” to describe the “reinvented” ASEAN – an ASEAN with a new guiding charter. Surin said that the Charter made “all issues relevant”, and “all issues were on the table” and “nothing could be hidden”. Of all the provisions in the charter, the most widely heralded was the call for the establishment of the ASEAN Human Rights Body (AHRB). The ASEAN Secretariat’s public relations hype over the summit would have been much easier had it not been for the Rohingya boat people. The plight of the Rohingya fleeing Burma because of religious persecution represented the first test of the ASEAN Charter’s promise to make human rights and the rule of law common currency throughout the region. The test fell flat. Surin was undermined by the Terms of Reference for the ASEAN Human Rights Body and by the inability of ASEAN to unite to confront and resolve the Rohingya problem. .ASEAN leaders have not caught up with the rights and entitlements implemented in the Charter. ASEAN’s failure to address the Rohingya issue and other pressing regional problems caused by the SPDC seriously undermines authority and effectiveness of the ASEAN Charter, and ASEAN itself. ASEAN leaders must realize that the current situation threatens the credibility and the integrity of the organization..."

    Title: BURMA IS STILL ASEAN’S SHAME
    Date of publication: 17 February 2009
    Description/subject: The Burmese military regime has not improved its behavior since the ASEAN Charter came into force on December 15, 2008. By intensifying repression in the past two months, the regime has directly attacked the integrity and credibility of ASEAN and its Charter. ASEAN is undermining itself by refusing to act against such serious violations.

    Title: ROHINGYA, ASYLUM SEEKERS & MIGRANTS FROM BURMA: A HUMAN SECURITY PRIORITY FOR ASEAN
    Date of publication: 30 January 2009
    Description/subject: Since October 2006, about 10,000 Rohingya have boarded boats in Bangladesh and Burma and headed for Thailand and Malaysia. The thousands of Rohingya boat people are only the tip of the iceberg. Millions of Burmese have fled the country in the past decade, with two million in Thailand alone... ASEAN must be proactive in pressuring Burma’s military regime, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) to cease perpetuating the severe persecution and economic mismanagement that has been forcing millions of people to flee to neighboring countries.

    Date of publication: 22 September 2008
    Description/subject: "On 26 September, one year will have passed since Burma’s military regime began its bloody crackdown on the Saffron Revolution. The spirit of the monk-led Saffron Revolution that moved hundreds of thousands of people to hold protests throughout Burma and inspired hundreds of solidarity events around the globe lives on. This briefer details what has happened in Burma since: repression has intensified, the SPDC has exacerbated another humanitarian crisis, persisted with its gross economic mismanagement and refused to deliver the actual reforms it has been promising for years. Despite this, monks and ordinary people have persevered in their defiance of the SPDC."

    Title: Campaign Kit for 8-8-88 20th anniversary: (1) BURMA 20 YEARS ON: HUNGRY AS EVER FOR DEMOCRACY
    Date of publication: 02 August 2008
    Description/subject: "Twenty years after brutally suppressing the inspiring 8888 uprising, Burma’s military regime, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) has run the country’s infrastructure into the ground and squandered its natural resources. Instead of investing in the development of Burma, the regime has focused national resources almost entirely on the military, doubling the size of the army and undertaking a spending spree on weapons. Even while the regime pursued its fake “roadmap to democracy”, it oversaw sharp increases in drug production, displacement, disease, and other threats to human security in Burma and Asia... In September 2007, the people of Burma took to the streets to call for the end of brutal repression, economic exploitation, and the impoverishment of a country gifted with natural wealth and talented peoples. The regime’s sham constitutional referendum, meant to consolidate its hold on power, cannot camouflage the steep decline in economic and social conditions... Burma’s neighbors, and the international community, must work with genuine commitment to support concrete solutions that involve all key stakeholders. Governments of Asia and the world must no longer allow their goodwill to be manipulated by the regime. Burma’s descent into greater instability must no longer be tolerated, for the sake of its people and the people of this region..."

    Date of publication: 02 August 2008
    Description/subject: "Twenty years after the 8888 national uprising, the international community must realize that unconditional engagement, discreet diplomacy, and ASEAN’s so-called constructive engagement has failed. While sanctions are a useful source of pressure and an effective signal to the regime that it will not be rewarded for brutality, these strategies have been undermined by governments that refuse to be pro-active. Such apathy and lack of political will has enabled the regime to perpetuate conditions that harm the people of Burma and intensify threats to regional security. The international community must stand united and deny the regime the means – weapons, money, and diplomatic protection - to continue oppressing and killing civilians, and causing increasing threats to human security. A strong, united position will ensure that the regime has no choice but to engage in genuine political and economic reforms. Such reforms must begin with: 1. The unconditional release all political prisoners, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. 2. The cessation of repression and hostilities against ethnic groups. 3. The commencement of tripartite dialogue..."

    Title: THE SPDC CONSTITUTIONAL REFERENDUM: A DEAD END FOR DEMOCRACY IN BURMA
    Date of publication: 02 May 2008
    Description/subject: On 10 May 2008, the people of Burma will vote in an SPDC-manipulated referendum on a draft constitution that is designed to entrench military rule. The likely consequences of a forced "Yes" vote or a majority "No" vote will have serious regional repercussions. A forced "yes" vote will likely intensify unrest in Burma among a population increasingly dissatisfied with the entrenchment of a regime notorious for its abuses and economic mismanagement. A majority "no" vote despite the regime's threats, intimidation, and fraudulent practices would result in a deeper political crisis, since the regime has repeatedly made it clear that it intends to remain in power if the constitution is rejected.

    Title: BURMA AT 60: TIME FOR CHANGE!
    Date of publication: December 2007
    Description/subject: "The briefer is released ahead of Burma’s 60th anniversary of independence on 4 January 2008. 2008 also marks 20 years since the 8888 uprising. The brief socio-economic overview of Burma’s past 60 years presents the grim realization that the past two years have witnessed a sharp decline in Burma on all fronts. Despite public relations efforts aimed at staving off both external and internal pressure, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) has perpetrated such serious mismanagement, repression and corruption that the consequences are not only threatening Burma’s stability but that of its immediate region as well."
