The Ta'ang Students and Youth Organization (TSYO) will be releasing a new report that documents how the Shwe Gas and Oil Pipeline project is having devastating consequences for the Ta'ang people.
The Shwe Pipeline cuts across the country, from Arakan State, through Central Burma and Northern Shan State, to China. It has already resulted in the confiscation of people's lands, forced labor and other human rights violations, and increased military presence and armed conflict along the pipeline. While the people suffer from these effects without any benefit to their communities, the government will make US$29 billion over the next 30 years.
TSYO is calling for the suspension of the Shwe Pipeline project. "Pipeline Nightmare" includes detailed recommendations to the Government of Burma, the companies involved in the project, as well as regional and international actors, to ensure that local people are not further harmed by development projects.
