Earth Rights Abuses in Burma Exposed
EarthRights International
2008

This collection of reports is the result of the hard work and dedication of fourteen young men and women from diverse ethnic groups and regions in Burma who attended EarthRights International's year-long leadership school for human rights and environmental advocacy, the EarthRights School of Burma (ERSB). While conducting research the students took great risks, often placing themselves in danger, to reveal the truth about Burma and the perspectives of the people directly affected by human rights abuses and environmental destruction.
