Film Screenings:

“Guns Briefcases and Inequality”
A Burma Partnership Production, Written and Directed by Daniel Quinlan,
Thai-Burma Border, 2013 (16min)


“Guns, Briefcases and Inequality: The Neglected War in Kachin State” highlights how development projects and natural resource management are exacerbating armed conflict and human rights violations in ethnic areas, without adequate means to justice for the people. The film demonstrates the need for the government of Burma to engage in meaningful political dialogue with all ethnic nationalities on equal terms in order to address the underlying causes of armed conflict: self-determination, the lack of ethnic rights, and inequality.

“Nothing About Us Without Us”
A Burma Partnership Initiative, Filmed and Directed by Timothy Syrota,
Thai-Burma Border, 2012 (19mn)


Thailand has been home for 150,000 refugees from Burma for decades. With reforms beginning to be implemented by the Burma government in the last year and a half, the return of these refugees is already being discussed and planned at a high level between the Burma and Thai governments and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).  History has provided repeated warnings of the potential dangers of planning a massive repatriation of refugees without adequate consultations and feedback from the affected communities. Repatriation without the inputs and consent of the refugees could exacerbate underlying conflicts, causing renewed strife which in turn can lead to further flows of refugees seeking asylum.

“Nothing About Us Without Us: Refugees’ Voices About their Return to Burma” is a short documentary feature highlighting refugees’ voices about repatriation from camps along the Thailand border back into Burma. The film features interviews with the UNHCR, leading academics, and the refugees themselves.

“Indigenous People’s Land and Rights”
August 2013, Cambodia (19mn)

Indigenous communities are very vulnerable to commercial and state interests which are increasingly attracted to exploiting the economic potential of the forests and upland areas of their homelands. Their livelihoods have become very precarious as hydropower, mining developments and Economic Land Concessions strip the forests and destroy their capacity to extract a living from the land.

There are 24 groups of Indigenous Peoples scattered over 15 provinces of Cambodia. They are concentrated in the four northeastern provinces of Ratanakiri, Mondulkiri, Stung Treng and Kratie, and the video focusses on these areas. It shows in detail how their livelihoods are being destroyed by unchecked development.

The lack of enforcement of existing laws, especially the Land Law of 2001 and subsequent policies and sub-decrees has severely undermined the livelihoods of Indigenous Peoples. NGO Forum works  continually with these communities and the Government to try and improve their situation. This video has been made to raise public awareness of their plight, and the need to enforce existing laws and improve Government directives, to increase the awarding of community land titles and protect their forest livelihoods from complete destruction.

“Losing HomeLand”
March 2014, Cambodia (20mn)


On May 9, 2008, the Royal Government of Cambodia signed a contract with UNION DEVELOPMENT GROUP CO, LTD to grant 36,000 hectares of land in Koh Kong as Land Concession to develop a center for International Trade and tourist entertainment place. The duration of the contract is 99 years. The Land Concession is located in Botum Sakor and Kiri Sakor district, Koh Kong province. Union Development Group is one among many other Chinese investment in Cambodia where thousands of local family suffering from the project

In the contract between the Union Development Group with the Government of Cambodia also has a provision on Guideline for Resettlement and Compensation on the Project which the company has to respect. As far as we understood, this provision was not consulted with local people and implementer was not following the guideline and there are a lot of violation happened during the implementation. The working group expected to use this video as a consultation material for any development project which impact to land and housing of local people in future.

Given this, the NGOs working group, includes NGOF, CLEC, CHRAC and ADHOC in Cambodia have created a video documentary for an evidence based “Losing Homeland” in order to produce a strong and concrete evident base advocacy to use to attract attention from national and international agencies to put effort and attention on this case for proper solution.

Call for Civil Society’s Participation &
Second Call for Proposal for Thematic Workshops

Theme: Advancing ASEAN Peoples’ Solidarity toward sustainable peace, development, justice and democratization

As Myanmar/Burma will chair ASEAN in 2014, civil society in Myanmar/Burma,  together with other regional organisations has decided to organize an ASEAN Civil Society Conference (ACSC)/ASEAN Peoples’ Forum (APF) on March 21-23, 2014 in Yangon. The date has been identified with the purpose of mirroring the official process of the 20th ASEAN Summit that will be conducted in May 2014.

The ACSC/APF is a space for democratic and constructive debates on ideas, formulation of proposals for ASEAN, exchange of experiences among civil society and peoples’ movements, expanding networks across issues in the region, and conducting joint actions, especially with respect to community building processes. This year, reflecting the major concerns of the ASEAN people towards the Association, ACSC/APF 2014 has chosen the theme “Advancing ASEAN Peoples’ Solidarity toward sustainable peace, development, justice and democratization”.

ACSC/APF is an annual gathering of civil society which was started in 2005 during Malaysia’s chairmanship. It was followed by the Philippines in 2006, Singapore in 2007, Thailand in 2009, Vietnam in 2010 and Indonesia in 2011, Cambodia in 2012 and Brunei in 2013. At the end of each Forum, civil society representatives prepare a collective statement and recommendations for ASEAN member states. This gathering is in line with the spirit of ASEAN Charter to make the Association relevant to ordinary people’s livelihoods.

With 68 Burmese representatives and 34 regional representatives present during the meeting, the National Organizing Committee is so far comprised of 73 member organizations from Myanmar/Burma civil society.  They are working together with regional friends to organize an inclusive ACSC/APF that will cover a wide range of themes including peace, development, justice and democratization.
