DOCUMENTARY: ‘With only our voices, what can we do?’

After six decades of civil war in southeastern Burma, violence continues to shape the lives of millions living in the villages along the country’s ethnic fringe.

Now, peace deals struck up between Naypyidaw and ethnic armed groups are paving the way for large scale development projects.

The creation of dams, highways and power plants, many backed by the Burmese army— is being underpinned by abuses, alleges Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) in this feature documentary.

Watch as KHRG takes you into rural southeastern Burma, where forced land confiscation and environmental destruction is taking place under the backdrop of an increasing Burmese military presence.
