Myanmar: From isolation to leader

My comment: LEADER of the BIRDS of the (same) feather that flocks together in a glass cage (house)

Verdinand Robertua, Jakarta | Opinion | Thu, November 14 2013

At the close of the East Asia Summit in Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar officially accepted the chairmanship of ASEAN 2013-2014. Myanmar’s leaders proved to the world that a state’s foreign policy can change an isolated country to an open and democratic country. The transition to a bloc leader requires some crucial measures on the part of Myanmar.

“Ethnocracy” not Democracy is practiced in Myanmar

“Ethnocracy” not Democracy is practiced in Myanmar.

The Lady doth protest too seldom

This ethno-nationalism is more likely to lead to a sort of “ethnocracy” than to a real democracy.

And it is important to remember that it has led to catastrophic outcomes in many other places (the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Nazi Germany …), and it is particularly dangerous in a country with as much diversity as Burma.

EU Must Highlight Ongoing Human Rights Abuses in UNGA Burma Resolution

Members of the European Burma Network welcome the decision of the European Union to continue with the annual United Nations General Assembly resolution on Burma.

We are concerned that despite the fact that the government of Burma has not met a single one of the twenty main demands made in last year’s resolution, the European Union had seriously considered discontinuing the resolution. We are also concerned that it was the possibility of the Organisation of Islamic Conference drafting a resolution if the European Union did not, and a demarche by the USA, which appeared to be key deciding factors in continuing the resolution, rather than serious ongoing human rights abuses which violate international law, and the fact that Burma has failed to comply with the previous 22 resolutions.

Religious violence in Burma, also known as Myanmar, has become the new breeding ground for sectarian violence. Much of the violence this past week has been instigated by radical Buddhist mobs belonging to the notorious 969 Movement at Rohingya Muslims, which constitute less than 5% of Burma’s total population, and are of Bengali heritage. The 969 Movement is led by Ashin Wirathu, a relatively unknown Buddhist monk who claims to preach nonviolence but actively loathes Muslims, who he sees as part of a malevolent mission to eradicate the country’s Buddhist majority.

UN must act to stop human rights abuses in Myanmar

South China Moring Post ကေတာ႔ ၿပတ္တယ္။ လက္႐ွိၿမန္မာနုိင္ငံအေၿခအေနက R2P နဲ႔ ကုိက္ညီေနပါတယ္တဲ႔။ ေရးသူက University of Hong Kong ကProfessor Ian Holliday တဲ႔။ Indeed, it is now clear that the UN doctrine of a “responsibility to protect” must come into play. This so-called R2P is triggered by genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. In Myanmar, firm evidence of all four crimes is now available.
