The Karen Women’s Organization Stands with Mu Traw District’s Civilians Demanding Withdrawal of Burma Army Troops & Immediate End to Fighting
The Karen Women’s Organization (KWO) fully supports the calls of Karen villagers demanding the withdrawal of the Burma Army and an end to road construction projects in their areas. The Burma Army has long threatened their overall safety and security. KWO along with so many trying to live their lives in Burma is all too familiar with the brutality of the Burma military. The Army’s intimidation tactics lead to violence and the erosion of basic human rights. KWO echoes these villager’s demands for an end to road construction projects, an immediate withdrawal of Burma Army soldiers and a stop to the military drone patrols over their village communities.
