KWO releases Briefing Paper calling for a stop to violence against women in Burma.Thousands of people in Burma have been killed, injured, arrested, and tortured by the State Administration Council (SAC) junta and its military forces. The SAC has tried to take control of the country, using brutal and extreme violence against the civilian population and creating a humanitarian crisis. We see their violence everywhere. Nationwide, more than one million people are now displaced from their homes. The junta has scaled up attacks in ethnic administration areas, targetting civilians, including in Kawthoolei, our Karen homeland. Approximately 254,000 women and children are displaced in Kawthoolei, and face extreme violence every day. KWO calls on the international community to help stop the violence.”
