Invitation

Launch of New Documentary Film "Guns, Briefcases and Inequality: The Neglected War in Kachin State"

A Burma Partnership Production
Filmed and directed by Daniel Quinlan

Burma Partnership is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new documentary film entitled, "Guns, Briefcases and Inequality: The Neglected War in Kachin State." This short documentary questions whether the government's current process will really lead to sustainable peace and national reconciliation.

The film highlights how development projects and natural resource management are exacerbating armed conflict and human rights violations in ethnic areas, without adequate means to justice for the people. The film demonstrates the need for the government of Burma to engage in meaningful political dialogue with all ethnic nationalities on equal terms in order to address the underlying causes of armed conflict: self-determination, the lack of ethnic rights, and inequality.

We would like to invite you to attend the launch of the film in Bangkok. The event will also include a panel discussion featuring representatives from Kachin civil society, Fortify Rights International and Burma News International, discussing different elements of the ongoing conflict in Kachin State and many of Burma's ethnic areas.

When: Friday 20 September 2013 at 10:30am 

Where: Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand, Maneeya Centre, Penthouse, 518 / 5 Ploenchit Rd, Bangkok (Chit Lom BTS Station)

The film will also be released online on 21 September, the International Day of Peace.

 

In Solidarity,

The Burma Partnership Secretariat
