The 92 Percent: Life Under the Junta in Burma s Chin State

In a recent survey, Physicians for Human Rights and partner organizations in Burma's Chin State found that nearly 92 percent of respondents reported at least one episode of forced labor, such as portering of military supplies or building roads.  Life Under the Junta: Evidence of Crimes Against Humanity in Burma’s Chin State, the report from Physicians for Human Rights, shares the data for this figure and for many more human rights violations being carried out by government authorities against the Chin people.

Physicians for Human Rights and the Open Society Foundations cohost a discussion on the report’s findings and the current situation in Burma.  The event will also feature photographs by Christian Holst on daily life in Burma, from the Moving Walls exhibit.
