Abstract

Report based on original interviews of army defectors and Burmese villagers. The burmese army, largely uneducated, plays an enormous role in the daily governance of Burma and is indistinguishable from the ruling regime. The army (Tatmadaw) is the government, and the government controls politics, economy, and daily lives of Burma's citizens. The military structures government controls politics, economy, and daily lives of Burma's citizens. The military structures give rise to prevalent rape. Those involved in the movement for democracy and members of ethnic minorities are subjugated to systematic brutality and human right violations by the Tatmadaw. But abuses occur mostly against women who are specially targered by the military, because they are women. Thus many women are raped as an integral part of the Burmese war against so-called insurgents. - (GL)
