AN ICLC WEBINAR
Thursday, September 14, 2023, 8:30 AM EDT (New York) – 9:30 AM EDT
Since February 2021, the people within the country of Myanmar have stood up against the Myanmar military, which took control of the country in a coup on February 1. Since that time, scores of people who have taken to the streets have been met with deadly violence, arbitrary arrests, and detention, those imprisoned have been tortured. People belonging to different ethnic communities have fled increasing the number of internally displaced persons within the country and in turn, many more have fled outside the borders to Thailand, India, Bangladesh, and beyond. Compounding the situation is arms sales by different governments emboldening the military junta to continue its commission of crimes. Please join us for this important conversation as this panel will discuss current events in Myanmar, specifically current human rights issues within different ethnic communities, what kinds of responses have been helpful, and what more can be done to address the rights violations taking place.
