Opium, Logging and Gas: the Burma Army’s predatory rule over the people of Burma

17 March 2014
Kachin State, Burma

Dear friends,

We have just returned from a series of relief missions to the Kachin and Shan States. There the Burma Army continues its attacks on ethnic minorities. Please see our reports and video of these attacks at www.freeburmarangers.org . The Burma Army also over-watches opium production and logging, and protects a gas pipeline that profits them but few others. This report will be the first in a three-part series that documents the Burma Army’s predatory rule of this part of Burma. Part one is “Opium, Burma Army-controlled narcotic militias and real people,” part two is “Attacks on the people and logging” and part three is “The Shwe Pipeline and the oppression of the people.”

The question should now be asked: Why does the regime view April as being so important?
