Title: "Kaladan Press Network"
Description/subject: BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO KALADAN PRESS NETWORK: "From 1948 to 1962 there was freedom of press and media in Burma but this was ended in 1962.After the present military regime came into power in 1988 the press media was totally banned. We believed that the independent media play the important roles of struggle for democracy and Human Rights. Therefore, some exile Rohingya elders consider to establish a news media group from the Rohingya community to provide news about Burma, especially Arakan and Arakan’s peoples to all Burmese nationalities and International communities. It is an independent and non-profitable News Agency covering Burma and Burma related issues. It maintains accurate, balanced and reliable news. It was established in February 2001 with the aim of promoting democracy and freedom of expressing. It provides information on Arakan State in particular and the whole of Burma in general. It produces news both in English and Burmese and provides about 350 people across the world through the electric media. Printing media yet to be printed as different difficulties. We hope that it will be produced in near future... Aims and objects: 1. To provide all out information of Arakanese peoples; 2. To established global network with the Rohingya people of Arakan State, Burma; 3. To make the ever green and peaceful world sharing with possible initiative; 4. To build the quality to international level journalism; 5. To make free Arakan for media and information and 6. To make the Burma to a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic State establishing the freedom of press, democracy and Human Rights... Activities: * Short time IT Training Program; * Basic Training on information service; * News update program; * Journalism performance program... Future Plans: * Organizing seminars, workshops and symposium; * Producing news bulletins; * Organizing short term journalism training; * To set up units of Kaladan Press Network in different places...

Description/subject: Breaking news; Articles; Opinion; Facts on Burma; Reports; Video; Audio; Photos; About us Contact us... KAREN NEWS is reported and written by Karen journalists to provide information on issues that shape Karen communities in Burma and around the world. KAREN NEWS provides a window to Burma and the international community on what is happening in Karen state. Our journalists live and work in Karen communities, know the issues that affect Karen people and aim to bring those issues to the attention of people across Burma, in the diaspora, and to all readers interested in the struggles and triumphs of the Karen people. Karen state has remained a conflict zone for more than half a century, during which the Burmese army has waged war against the Karen people. Since 1996 more than 3,600 villages have been abandoned or destroyed, and as many as 500,000 people have been displaced as a direct result of armed conflict. For KAREN NEWS journalists, everyday stories cover a range of crimes against humanity – extrajudicial killings, sexual violence, forced labor, child soldiers, forced displacement, human trafficking. Among the carnage, however, are stories of hope, love and dignity."

Title: Media of Burma (Wikipedia)
Description/subject: Discursive, but also has links to news sites....The media of Burma refers to print, broadcast and online media in Burma (Myanmar). The media has undergone strict censorship and regulation since the 1962 Burmese coup d'état. The constitution provides for freedom of speech and the press; however, the government prohibits the exercise of these rights in practice. Reporters Without Borders ranked Burma 174th out of 178 in its 2010 Press Freedom Index, ahead of just Iran, Turkmenistan, North Korea, and Eritrea.[1] There have been moves to lift censorship in the country. Tint Swe, head of the country's "Press Scrutiny and Registration Division", told Radio Free Asia that censorship "should be abolished in the near future" as it is "non-existent in most other countries" and "not in harmony with democratic practices."[2][3]
