Title: More protests over Yangon industrial zone
Date of publication: 24 November 2012
Description/subject: "More than 30 farmers from four villages in Hlaing Tharyar township protested outside the Department for Human Settlement and Housing Development (DHSHD) on Bogyoke Aung San Road this week. The farmers had been demonstrating for more than three weeks outside the office of Wah Wah Win Company, on the corner of Anawrahta and Sintohtan streets in downtown Yangon, before shifting their attention to the DHSHD office after getting no response. They are unhappy that the company has allegedly backtracked on a compensation promise made following protests in the middle of the year. “We demonstrated for 23 days [since Wednesday, October 31] in front of the [Wah Wah Win] office. We called on them to negotiate the complicated land issues in Hlaing Tharyar township but they took no notice so we moved to DHSHD in the hope that they could solve the problem. We decided to stay here until they solve the problem for us,” said Ko Kyi Shwin from Kyun Ka Lay village in Hlaing Tharyar township. The land in Kyun Ka Lay, Kyun Gyee, Kan Phyu and Atwin Padan was confiscated by DHSHD more than two decades ago without compensation..."

Date of publication: 19 October 2011
Description/subject: Parliamentarians reportedly still serving their sentences:...Parliamentarians who died in custody or soon after their release:...Parliamentarians who were assassinated:.....Resolution adopted unanimously by the IPU Governing Council at its 189th session (Bern, 19 October 2011): "The Governing Council of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, Referring to the case of the above-mentioned former members-elect of the Pyithu Hluttaw (People’s Assembly) of the Union of Myanmar, all elected in the elections of May 1990, as outlined in the report of the Committee on the Human Rights of Parliamentarians (CL/189/11(b)-R.1), and to the resolution adopted at its 188th session (April 2011), Recalling that, on 21 March 2011, the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution in which it called upon the Government to lift restrictions on freedom of assembly, association and movement and on freedom of expression, including for free and independent media, and to end the use of censorship, including the use of restrictive laws to prevent the reporting of views critical of the Government, and strongly urged the Government of Myanmar to release all prisoners of conscience, including the former parliamentarians - numbering 12 at the time - who had been sentenced on the basis of legal proceedings which disregarded their right to a fair trial, Noting that former parliamentarian Mr. Kyaw San was released on 17 May 2011 upon having served his sentence, Recalling that since the new Parliament of Myanmar, elected on 7 November 2010, started its work, members of the opposition in Parliament have called on the Government to release all political prisoners, a call which the Minister of Home Affairs dismissed on 22 March 2011 as untimely; that, however, at the end of August 2011, members of Parliament again raised the matter of an amnesty, Considering that, on 11 October 2011, the Government indeed announced an amnesty for more than 6,000 prisoners and that, under the amnesty, Mr. Saw Hlaing, Mr. Kyaw Khin and Mr. Than Lwin were released on 12 October 2011 along with some 200 other political prisoners; that the release took place at a time when the President signed into law a new Labour Organization Act permitting the establishment of trade unions, which had no effect been banned since 1962, and a senior government official talked of the need to do away with censorship..."

Title: Pa'an Situation Update: June to August 2011
Date of publication: 17 October 2011
Description/subject: "This report includes a situation update submitted to KHRG in September 2011 by a villager describing events occurring in Pa'an District between June 2011 and August 2011. It details recent Tatmadaw and Tatmadaw Border Guard activity, including camp locations and troop strength, and incidents related to a forced relocation order issued to eight villages in Lu Pleh Township by Tatmadaw Border Guard units on July 15th 2011. After the July 20th deadline for relocation, Tatmadaw and Border Guard forces commenced joint attacks against six of the villages ordered to relocate, including multiple days of heavy shelling and machine gun fire which the villager who submitted this report described as indiscriminate. On July 20th 2011 Border Guard troops also deliberately killed villagers' livestock and fired mortars into civilian areas of R--- village, injuring a 50-year-old woman, while retreating from an attack by the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) on the Border Guard camp in R---. This report further documents Tatmadaw Border Guard demands for forced labour and forced porters. The villager who submitted this update raises villagers' concerns related to flooding along the Dta Greh [Hlaing Bwe] River during the 2011 monsoon season, and the abandonment of schools and loss of trade and livelihood opportunities due to forced relocation. This report notes that, in response to the abuses and concerns mentioned above, villagers in Pa'an District adopt strategies that include: moving to areas beyond Tatmadaw control, monitoring local security conditions, and hiding food stores in the jungle."

Apart from military officers, the new intelligence unit reportedly involves officials from the Myanmar Police Force, which is under the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), Bureau of Special Investigation and the Ministry of Border Affairs..."

ARTICLES: "Unity is strength" by Hlaing Aung: "The harmonious cooperation of the entire people to address and surmount the situations triggered by the storm “Nargis” seems to support the saying that goes “Unity is strength”. Myanmars showed such a consolidated unity among them in times of emergency that they won the recognition of the international community...the cohesion of the government, the people and the Tatmadaw. Since the time when the storm was still raging, the Head of State and national level dignitaries were laying down programmes to launch rescue and resettlement tasks. In the post-storm period, Chairman of the National Disaster Preparedness Central Committee Prime Minister General Thein Sein stayed in the stormravaged areas to supervise the rescue and relief measures. Furthermore, the Head of State and the Deputy Head of State made inspection tours of the storm-hit areas, fulfilled the requirements and gave guidance. A minister has been assigned to each storm-struck township to supervise the relief and rehabilitation tasks...It is also required of the entire people to maintain the already-achieved consolidated unity and participate actively in the drive for building a new nation. That is the national concern or the lifeblood for the nation..."....."A journey to storm-hit area of Mawlamyinegyun" Article & Photos: Mawgyun Myint Aung (IPRD).

ARTICLE: "It has come to their knowledge" by Hlaing Aung: "I happened to read an article “In Myanmar, surprising recovery” featured in 17-6-2008 issue of the International Herald Tribune Newspaper Website. It said that about six weeks after the outbreak of the Cyclone Nargis the medical doctors and staff of INGOs, who had given health care in the storm-hit areas, on their return disclosed the situations in the areas were not as bad as expected. Regarding the storm, the media of the West bloc made various accusations against Myanmar. So did high-ranking officials of certain western countries. Of the two major accusations, the first said that tens of thousands of victims lost their lives due to the fact that in the aftermath of the natural disaster, foreign aid (foreign warships) were not allowed to enter the nation and rescue tasks could not be carried out in time. The other was that millions of victims would die of hunger because the Myanmar government did not take care of the storm victims, nor did it provide food or health care. And tens of thousands of victims would die of dysentery and diarrhoea due to consumption of unsafe water. When the government refuted the accusations, they accused the government of inventing news and imposing a news blackout. However, in the article sent from Yangon, some foreigners who had made trips to the storm-affected areas said that the accusations were untrue. Charge d’ Affaires ai Ms Shari Villarosa of US Embassy to Myanmar said, “I’m not getting the sense that there have been a lot of deaths as a result of the delay”. The US defence...".....

In order to enable them to have resilience, the government, entrepreneurs and organizations are providing assorted supplies including shelters, food, paddy seeds for cultivation, tractors and cattle...In the forthcoming paddy harvest season after this rainy season and cold season, the whole Ayeyawady region will have been rehabilitated with thriving paddy fields. By then, Ayeyawady dwellers will have risen from the evil consequences of the storm. Surely, Ayeyawady Division will be fully regenerated with thriving trees and crop plantations by next year...There were some voices saying that only with free access would there be many more supplies.

Title: Ruling the Rulers
Date of publication: May 2008
Description/subject: Efforts to limit the powers of Burma’s absolute monarchs failed. So did the monarchy... "THROUGHTOUT Asia, the middle of the 19th century was a period of political turmoil, as Western imperial powers pressed in upon countries that were subject to various forms of pre-modern rule. Burma was no exception, as it was forced to come to terms with a nation that was not only militarily superior, but also politically more advanced. Under the country’s last two monarchs, King Mindon (1853-78) and King Thibaw (1878-85), there were attempts to reform Burmese polity in the face of growing external challenges. At the center of these efforts was Yaw Atwinwun U Hpo Hlaing, the author of “Rajadhammasangaha,” a treatise which would have laid the basis for a constitutional monarchy in Burma, and which, in the words of respected scholar Maung Htin, “might have kept King Thibaw in the enjoyment of his throne..."”

Title: Myanmar generals visit arms maker in Russia
Date of publication: 12 October 2007
Description/subject: MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Myanmar military delegation visited Russia on Friday, a day after the Asian state's military junta was deplored by the United Nations for crushing pro-democracy protests. Two leading Russian newspapers said the delegation was discussing buying missile systems from Russia, which has in the past sold fighter planes to Myanmar and has said it believes sanctions against the junta are premature. A Russian Air Force spokesman said the delegation was headed by Lieutenant-General Myint Hlaing, commander of Myanmar's air defense forces. The spokesman declined to specify whether the visitors were buying arms.

Title: Where Are They Now?
Date of publication: August 2007
Description/subject: Correspondent Anne Fletcher meets former activists of the 88 Generation who made new lives o­n the other side of the world... "The menacing group of five soldiers emerged from Rangoon’s city hall, knelt down and aimed their guns at the protesters. Tin Maung Htoo, a 16-year-old high school student, sat tight, linking arms with others in the front row. The first shots Tin Maung Htoo heard, however, sounded like machine gun fire from armored cars sweeping round both sides of the Sule Pagoda o­n that August night, 19 years ago. Then the soldiers facing Tin Maung Htoo and his companions opened fire, the bullets from their guns hitting the ground, ricocheting up and striking home. “Some students started running and then falling o­n o­ne another,” Tin Maung Htoo recalls. “I also ran and ran and ran.” Among the protesters who had massed in Rangoon streets the whole day was 21-year-old Toe Kyi. By 10:30 p.m. that night, sensing a terrible climax to come, the leader of his 100-strong group asked him to take half the young demonstrators back to safety in Sanchaung Township. One protester, Ko Naing, was doubly wary of the danger. Jailed for seven days after taking part in a march near Inya Lake o­n March 16—also violently broken up by government forces—he left the City Hall area about 5 p.m. to escort a group of teenagers home to Hlaing Township. Both Toe Kyi and Ko Naing, then 24, were in the crowd o­n Prome Road the following month, o­n September 19, when again the military fired o­n protesters. Those demonstrations were followed by the coup that brought the present regime to power. Today, after claiming UN refugee status in Thailand, all three men have built new lives in Canada, a country free but very foreign to those who grew up in the tropical time warp of pre-1988 Burma..."

Title: A Half-Stocked Marketplace of Ideas - a review of "Myanmar: State, Society and Ethnicity" by N. Ganesan and Kyaw Yin Hlaing
Date of publication: July 2007
Description/subject: N. Ganesan and Kyaw Yin Hlaing, Myanmar: State, Society and Ethincity, Insitute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore, and Hiroshima Peace Institue Japan, US $24.99.... Scholars provide little more than table scraps in a new academic collection o­n Burma... "It is a mark of modern academia, more than the state of Burma, that many scholarly collected works o­n the country are about as substantial as a glass of ye-sa (water boiled with rice), and not the full, lavish feast of erudition that the country should be able to produce. N. Ganesan and Kyaw Yin Hlaing’s new edited collection, Myanmar: State, Society and Ethnicity, lamentably joins this parsimonious table. It gives basic nourishment but fails to excite the intellectual senses,. The product of workshops at the Hiroshima Peace Institute in 2005, these collected papers, with some notable and commendable exceptions, join a stack of edited volumes that promise insight but deliver the same tired arguments, borrowed research and bland summations..."

High road from China via Muse, a border town in Burma’s northeastern Shan State. Then came an inventory of the rest of Win Hlaing’s home: flashlight, light bulbs, switches, radio, VCD player, rice cooker and other kitchen accessories, children’s toys. All made in China..."

Title: Women Political Prisoners in Burma
Date of publication: 07 October 2004
Description/subject: " Two organizations, based on the Thai-Burma border, have released an English version of a report on women political prisoners in Burma. The Burmese Women's Union (BWU) and the AAPP have worked jointly on the English version of the report and released the Burmese version in February 2004. At least 1,425 political prisoners are behind bars because of their connections with democratic movements in Burma. Nearly one hundred of these are women, including the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. The 200 page report, entitled "Women Political Prisoners in Burma," expresses the history of women in politics. The report covers common experiences of women in prisons and military intelligence detention centers, food and health conditions in prisons, and torture and human rights violations by prison authorities.

Title: Reconciling Burma/Myanmar: Essays on U.S. Relations with Burma
Date of publication: 03 March 2004
Description/subject: Free access not available anymore! The document needs to be purchased. Foreword: "An intellectual “tectonic shift” is underway, making a precarious policy even harder to justify. This rather unusual issue of the NBR Analysis does not stem from an NBR-sponsored project or study. Instead, it emerged as an initiative from an extraordinary assemblage of Burma scholars, all of whom regard last year’s announcement of a “road map” for constitutional change, the ongoing progress toward cease-fires with ethnic insurgents, and the worsening impact of sanctions on the general populace, as an opportunity to re-examine U.S. relations with Burma. Recognizing that the current situation may be conducive to taking a fresh perspective, and noting the significance of so many top Burma specialists reaching similar conclusions and working together, we decided to publish their essays. The scholars in this volume represent a range of perspectives. What is especially notable is that they collaborated in this enterprise and concur that the U.S. policy of sanctions is not achieving its worthy objective—progress toward constitutional change and democratization in Burma. Moreover, as some of these authors argue, viewing U.S.-Burma relations solely through this lens, important as it is, may be harming other U.S. strategic interests in Southeast Asia, both in terms of the ongoing war against terrorism and long-term objectives regarding the United States’ role as a regional security guarantor. The desperate humanitarian situation in the country, as detailed in many of these essays, and concerns about possible WMD-related activities only underscore the importance of looking at this issue again. U.S. policymakers in particular ought to consider whether it is now appropriate to take a more realistic, engaged approach, while easing restrictions on humanitarian assistance, programs to build civil society, and the forces of globalization that are needed for the Burmese peoples’ socio-economic progress and solid transition to civilian government and democracy..."

Title: Educating the Elite
Date of publication: July 2003
Description/subject: With conditions in the public school system deteriorating, Burma’s generals opt to send their children elsewhere... In military-ruled Burma, school bells ring only if politics permit. After the May 30 crackdown on Burma’s opposition and the arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi, schools across Burma closed their doors to stop dissent brewing in the schoolyard and spilling out into the streets. This is all too familiar to Hlaing Win, who attends a state-run high school in Rangoon. He knows that if he wants an uninterrupted education, he needs to go to a private school. "If I was a student at a private school it wouldn’t matter what the authorities were doing. They couldn’t close the school," said Hlaing Win, 16. Because of their place outside the state system, private schools are buffered from politically related closures by military authorities. Hlaing Win dreams of going to a private school like the International Language and Business Center (ILBC) in Rangoon. "I’m really interested in that school because I know I would get a normal education that is guaranteed in a foreign country," Hlaing Win said. Many of the top private schools in Rangoon offer internationally recognized school certificates and English language instruction. But their high fees mean that only a tiny portion of Burma’s seven million school-aged students can afford to go. Admission to Rangoon’s top schools does not depend upon a tough entrance exam or good grades. What students need is money, and lots of it. At the ILBC, fees start at around 1.1 million kyat (US $1,160) per year for kindergarten students and rise as students move to higher grades..."

Title: Interviews from Northern Pa'an District
Date of publication: 04 August 1996
Description/subject: "The following interviews are with villagers from Dta Greh Township in Pa’an District of Karen State. (In Burmese, Dta Greh is called Pain Kyone and SLORC considers it to be in Hlaing Bwe township.) The area is 40-50 km. northeast of Pa’an, just west of the Dawna Range and the Thai border. SLORC (Burmese military junta), DKBA (Democratic Karen Buddhist Army, allied to SLORC), and KNU (Karen National Union, fighting SLORC and DKBA) forces all operate in the area, and the villagers are caught in the middle, having their livestock killed and their money extorted from them by all 3 groups. Furthermore, anyone or any village suspected of helping one group is certain to be punished by one of the others, including the possibility of executions or destruction of the village. SLORC in particular has a policy of relocating and destroying villages which have the potential to provide voluntary or involuntary support to KNU forces. As part of this policy, in Dta Greh township SLORC ordered the villages of Ta Ku Klaw and Kwee Pa Taw to relocate to Naw Ter Hta in January, while Noh Law Bler village was ordered to move to Tee Per. Then in May, Tee Po Lay Kee and K’Law Lu villages were ordered to move to Tee Per and these villages were immediately burned down by SLORC and DKBA forces..."

Title: Refugees from Pa'an District
Date of publication: 18 March 1996
Description/subject: "The descriptions below were given by recently arrived refugees from southern Pa'an District in central Karen State, interviewed in refugee camps in Thailand in February 1996. For background on this area, the reader should see 'SLORC / DKBA Activities in Kawkareik Township' (KHRG #95-23, 10/7/95) and other related KHRG reports. The refugees in this report are all from the area around Bee T'Ka, north of Kawkareik towards Hlaing Bwe. In this area, SLORC and DKBA are ruling in tandem, with a limited presence of KNLA still in the area. Villagers are finding that now they have to pay fees and provide forced labour for both SLORC and DKBA, and that the DKBA have no qualms about handing over villagers to be tortured or executed by SLORC. Two names which always occur in the testimony of villagers, and have appeared in KHRG reports before, are Pa Tha Dah (aka Pa Tha Da, Kyaw Tha Da, Saw Tha Da) and his brother Nuh Po (aka Kyaw Nuh Po, Saw Nuh Po). They are two former Bee T'Ka farmers who joined DKBA for the power it gives them, and have become even more notorious than SLORC in the area for their looting, torture, and gratuitous abuse of villagers. As a result, SLORC had them promoted to officer rank in the DKBA..."

Title: Update on Karen Refugee Situation (Information Update)
Date of publication: 01 January 1996
Description/subject: Excerpt from 19 January 1996 Bangkok Post, headlined "SLORC to accept 70,000 refugees": "Burma has agreed to allow over 70,000 of its citizens who have taken refuge in camps along the border to return home. An agreement was reached at yesterday’s meeting in Myawaddy of the Joint Local Thai-Burmese Border Committee, according to Col. Suvit Maen-muan. At the meeting, Col. Suvit and a team of five officials met the team of Lt. Col. Kyaw Hlaing, and the latter accepted a proposal on the return of over 70,000 refugees. A list has been drawn up of over 9,000 refugees at Sho Klo camp in Tha Song Yang who are to be voluntarily repatriated as soon as Burma is ready, Col. Suvit said..." "70,000 means the entire population of Karen refugees registered in all refugee camps in Thailand. This agreement has occurred despite the fact that the latest KNU / SLORC talks broke down and that SLORC is now stepping up military activities in most areas, especially Taungoo and Papun Districts. Most of the refugees would be forced back to Taungoo, Papun, and Pa’an Districts, even though more refugees are arriving from all of these areas right now. In Taungoo and Papun Districts SLORC has been systematically burning crops and villages and forcing villagers into labour camps for months. In Pa’an District SLORC has blocked all flow of food, goods and medicines from towns to the villages, followed by the DKBA going around and confiscating ALL rice, livestock, cooking pots and other necessities they can get their hands on, resulting in people fleeing to the forests to hide in clusters of 1 or 2 families - the situation in all these areas is increasingly desperate (see related KHRG reports and Burma Issues Dec/95 newsletter). Furthermore, upon repatriation these refugees would be screened by SLORC, and any who are seen as having relatives in the KNU would face arrest or execution. Many of the rest would be impounded in forced labour camps. The repatriation would be anything but voluntary..."

Title: The Rajadhammasangaha
Date of publication: 1979
Description/subject: "The Rajadhammasangaha" was presented to King Thibaw in December 1878. The first printing was c.1915. This translation by L.E.Bagshawe is from the version edited with a biographical preface by Maung Htin (U Htin Fatt) and published by the Sape U Publishing House in 1979... "On the seventh waxing day of Nadaw...the Wetmasut Myoza Wungyi finished the writing of his book Rajadhammasangaha and presented it to King Thibaw. The author describes it pleasantly as “a book of the proper behaviour for Kings and other high officers of government”. The Pagan Wundauk U Tin, however, says “it is a book of admonishment addressed to King Thibaw.” And in this he speaks the direct truth. In this book the Wetmasut Myoza Wungyi documents the proposals for changes in the system of government that were planned from the time of King Mindon. His intention in writing the book, he says, is, “In bygone times of the Buddha-to-be there were good and excellent Kings who guarded the well-being of all living creatures; like them may our own King, Lord of the Saddanta Elephant and Lawful King, under the Law guard the well-being of all living creatures like that of his own beloved children.” This expressed intention has a further meaning. Under an autocracy we cannot really say that the monarch rules with the single-minded wish to rule all living creatures on the same terms as his own children. If he is brought to the point where he must consult the "living creatures", we may be able to say that he regards them on equal terms with his own children. If there is no law requiring consultation, his guardianship becomes dubious..."
