KWAT team is happy to share our 7 years activity report (2007-2013) with you all.
This report is a comprehensive compilation of KWAT's goals, accomplishments, activities, and roles within society from 2007-2013. Since its formation in 1999, KWAT has been active in Thailand, Kachin State, and in Northern Shan State in Burma for the past 15 years.
KWAT is very concerned at the recent escalation of attacks by the Burma Army in southern Kachin and northern Shan State, which have caused fresh displacement and suffering. These systematic operations to seize control of key trade routes and economic zones along the China-Burma border throw strong doubt on the government’s sincerity towards the peace process.
The Women’s League of Burma welcomes a new report by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that calls for Burma’s government to investigate crimes of sexual violence, and highlights the need for constitutional reform to bring the military in Burma under civilian oversight.
