ND-Burma held its 33rd Network meeting in Pyin Oo Lwin 10-13 March. The meeting brought together 26 people from across the country, representing ND-Burma’s 13 members as well as partner organisations and those that have applied for membership. Participants updated each other on their activities over the last 6 months, spoke about challenges to human rights documentation and how to overcome them, and planned collaborative projects for the next two years. As well as human rights documentation, ND-Burma provides a range of rights-related training and advocates for justice for victims violations.
ND-Burma was formed by 9 groups on the Thai-Burma border in 2004 and has grown to include organisations that represent a range of ethnic nationalities, women, and the LGBTI community. Our mission is to end to state-sponsored rights violations and to achieve government recognition, redress and guarantees of non-recurrence for victims.
