Despite the promise of reforms, hand shaking, back slapping and media posturing, humanitarian needs persist. Over 1.5 million people are displaced, within their own country, by the genocide in Burma. Before the military coup, the country was made of several states divided along ethinic types. Living in harmony for decades, they have now become a stateless and fleeing mass of people groups lacking the most basic of human rights. A number of the ethnic groups have persisted in their resistance to the ruling governments insistance that their States be disolved and hand over their lands and people to the brutal regime. In order to gain international legitimacy the government will need to invest significant political effort to translate various ceasefires into sustainable peace. However, events such as the brutal agression against the Kachin & the Rakhine peoples leading up to the much hyped "elections" in which, for the 1st time since the beginning of the seige, Aung San Suu Kyi, the daughter of the assasinated elected leader Saw Ba U Gyi, was allowed to run for a seat within the government and won. The 'elections" were an abysmal failure with no iternational monitors allowed and massive outcries of fraud & even deadly violence. Approximately 3 million Burmese have been forced to flee to neighboring countries.The extensive use of landmines and rougue pockets of regime soldiers make returning to their homeland nearly unthinkable. For almost 80 years this atrocity has been taking place, and we ask, WHY IS NO ONE DOING ANYTHING?
