Season of fear internally displaced people in Burma call for international action( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in Burmese and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Season of Fear was filmed in October/November 2005 in communities of internally displaced people in northern Karen State, Burma who had fled the Burma military offensive that swept through the area. Troops burned villages and food stores, and tortured and killed villagers. This offensive has only escalated since the video was filmed, with up to 20,000 soldiers sweeping across swathes of eastern Burma. Between February and the end of November 2006 over 27,000 people have been freshly displaced from their homes and 5000 have fled to refugee camps to Thailand, following a series of offensives by the Burma military. Week by week the numbers grow, and there is an urgent need for international action by the UN Security Council to address the situation. Burma has the worst crisis of internal displacement in Asia. There are already over 500,000 other people who were already internally displaced in eastern Burma, on the run from the brutal military of Burmese leader Than Shwe, or living in forced relocation sites. In the past decade over 3000 villages have been destroyed or relocated in eastern Burma. These ethnic minority civilians have suffered through thirty years of a brutal military campaign to assert absolute control over ethnic minority border areas, and to systematically destroy the capacity of rural civilians to live independently. Attacks on these rural civilians continue on a daily basis

2 editions published in 2006 in Burmese and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents the daily struggle of half a million displaced villagers in eastern Burma, driven from their homes by the country's brutal military dictatorship. The 45-year old catastrophe created by the regime has reached one of its worst moments as the military junta escalates its attacks against the area's ethnic minorities. The government's efforts to assert control over ethnic border areas have emptied over 3,000 villages in a decade. The forces of Burma's military junta are mortaring villages, looting and burning homes to the ground, and destroying crops in an effort to obliterate the livelihoods of rural communities. Burmese soldiers are ordered to shoot civilians on sight
No place to go internally displaced persons in Burma( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in Burmese and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Produced in collaboration with WITNESS partner Burma Issues, NO PLACE TO GO is based upon the harrowing testimony of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in eastern Burma and the video documentation of their plight. The IDPs tell the story of their experiences as the Burmese military government has systematically killed its own people using forced labor, forced movement, arbitrary executions and massacres. Almost a million people, primarily ethnic minorities such as the Karen, have been driven from their homes and forced to run into relocation camps or into the jungle, where they have limited access to healthcare, shelter, food or education, and must constantly relocate to avoid attack or capture by the Burmese forces. Many are subsequently forced to flee as refugees into neighboring Thailand
