We Used to Fear Bullets Now We Fear Bulldozers

By Dawei Development Association, Tenasserim River & Indigenous People Networks and Tarkapaw Youth Group  •  October 30, 2015

In Yangon today, three Dawei-based civil society organizations launched a new report, based on more than two years of research and community-engagement, condemning the destructive coal mine at Ban Chaung. The report, Ban chaung coal mining report 2015 – English, documents the devastating impact that coal mining has had on the local environment, community health, traditional livelihoods, and unique indigenous way of life in this recent conflict-zone in Tanintharyi Region of Southern Myanmar, and also raises warning flags about how large-scale mining projects in Maynmar are permitted and regulated. It was published jointly by the Tarkapaw Youth Group, Dawei Development Association (DDA), and the Tenasserim River & Indigenous People Networks (TRIP NET).
