Not only can they provide info on hotel projects but they can also tell you
documented stories of the use of forced labor in tourism projects.
There is a 12 minute long BBC documentary made several months ago by Vivian
Morgan and one other professional. It's called "A State of Despair:
Burma." If anyone is willing to use it for our ongoing Free Burma
political campaign, please contact me on the Net or via fax (608)263-9992.
It touches upon the serious issue of slave labor and tourism development
and is a very well-done.
I myself used to work for what was then called Tourist Burma, and know
quite a bit about tourism in Burma.
