Siege of Kachin State 2012
October 3, 2012
Help for the oppressed in Burma's Kachin state is coming from Church groups and Kachin community organizations - rather than the international community or the UN, according to Mark Farmaner, director of the Burma Campaign UK. He adds that the atrocities being committed there are simply "business as usual for the dictators in Kachin state, the kind of thing they've been doing in Shan state and Karen state for years ... horrific human rights abuses".
