summary Burma author Benedict Rogers Burma author Benedict Rogers summary è eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Benedict Rogers Ç 8 characters For than 50 years Burma has been ruled by a succession of military regimes which rank among the most oppressive dictatorships in the world Accused of crimes against humanity they have brutally mistreated their people Yet in the last couple of years and in spite of sham elections the pace of change has been breathtaking Much is now hoped for However Burma is one of the most ethnically diverse nations in SE Asia there are roughly seven m. Burma has not had a chance to be a unified Ethnic minorities have engaged in uprisings to gain independence and eual rights The Burmese military regime has responded with armed forces to restore order ever since it gained power in 1958 and regained its rule after a coup d tat in 1962 What initially was seen as uprisings has developed into a form of civil war which political organisations were set up and villagers were trained to become armies such as one of the ethnic groups long and powerful resistance force Karen s Karen National Union KNU and its Karen National Defence Organisation The atrocious attacks on Karen people by the military regime have lost many lives and burnt down many villages This fact is what almost everyone in the world has become aware of today However what we have heard less of is that a Karen man was caught tied up to a tree upside down eyes gouged out and drowned 55 Or a Shan women and her two daughters being gang raped by over fifty soldiers 64 Or a twelve year old Kachin boy recalling how his mother was shot dead 86 This is only few of the stories the author aims to deliver The situation of Burma and the struggle of the people is not happening in one place or in one ethnic group but there are various other factors involved The author argues that this can only be understood by looking at Burma as a whole and by telling their stories of suffering almost in silence virtually unheard unknown and un helped p xxi The author successfully accomplishes this by narrating stories he heard from his multiple visits to Burma s ethnic regions and meeting actual people with first hand experience of the brutal attacks by the military However his encounters are not limited to victims of this ethnic fight but also Burmans who are fighting for democracy displaced people for religious reasons and former soldiers His wide range of sources allow him to achieve his goal of taking a holistic view on Burma The author introduces several organisations that fight along them by issuing reports about them to gather attention from the outside He strategically takes the book to the conclusion that with the solidarity among various groups of people and the support from outside Burma can change itself as it is now at the crossroads Since 2000 the author has visited Burma multiple times to the borderlands where the ethnic groups are He has also visited the borders where many refugees are displaced He has looked into the eyes of xxiii the people fighting for freedom in their own country His visits are not limited to the peripheries but also main cities such as Rangoon Mandalay and Naypyidaw The variety of people he encountered can be seen from the arrangement of chapters ethnic groups in the East North and West Stateless people 127 who he calls the Rohingyas of former adult and child soldiers of the Burma Army and protestors of the Saffron Revolution He does not separate one group from the others and specialise in them He instead categorises them all into one group as fighting against the same enemy On the one hand he is speaking for the victims of the military regime However he does not blame the people carrying out the attacks The uniueness of the book is where he includes episodes with officers of the Burma Army which show that they have a soft side and are just taking orders He includes his casual interaction with one of the officers while waiting for the plane in the process of his deportation and an account from a foreign woman when the soldiers came to her house with rifles but all naturally focused on her smiling baby Through this he is able to show that the fault is not entirely on the people but on the system that forces them to act brutally As one of the groups fighting for Burma s freedom he also introduces a variety of non profit non government organisations that are fighting with the people and also playing an important role in informing the world of the situation through newsletters reports and articles These organisations include Free Burma Rangers Women s League of Chinland the Human Rights Foundation of Monland Assistance Association for Political Prisoners and so the list goes on Most of these organisations are unheard of and yet crucial to the battle for freedom as they have reliable statistical data of deaths displaced raped child soldiers and many violation of human rights In the case of Shan State which is the largest state located in the east and has the largest population from 1996 to 1998 80000 Shans fled to Thailand 1400 villages were forcibly relocated 300000

between 1996 and 2001 there were 173 incidents of rape involving 625 women and girls which 61 percent were gang rapes and 25 percent ended killed 64 The issue of rapes in Shan state was brought into awareness for the first time by the reports which prompted investigation by the US State Department These numbers have drawn public attention from outside the country Burma a nation at the crossroads
