ND-Burma held its 4th Reparations Workshop in Yangon 5 – 7 March. Participants examined reparations programmes in Peru, Chile and South Africa, and held a detailed discussion on what kind of programme would best serve Burma’s many victims of human rights violations, as well as national reconciliation. Participants continued to stress the importance of reparations in order to end human rights violations and bring peace.
Participants included ND-Burma members as well as: Future Light Center, Genuine Public Servants, Vimutti Women’s Organization, Progressive Voice and Open Myanmar Initiative. Together they represent a range of ethnic nationalities, women, political prisoners, organisations fighting for democratic change, and the LGBTI community.
