Today is World Refugee Day, around the world the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees is commemorated. According to the UN, this year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee through the #WithRefugees petition.
Today, 19 June 2017 is International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict. This day was chosen by the UN General Assembly because on 19 June 2008 the UN Security Council adopted resolution 1820 (2008) in which it "condemned sexual violence as a tactic of war and an impediment to peacebuilding". This year's theme is "Preventing Sexual Violence Crimes through Justice and Deterrence". Throughout the history of Myanmar's internal armed conflicts and still today there are serious allegations of sexual violence in conflict by the Tatmadaw and other armed groups. A culture of impunity still reigns and investigations into allegations often lead to unsatisfactory outcomes.
This News Bulletin describes the details of a proposed hydropower dam project in Ler Muh Lah Township, Tanintharyi Region, Mergui-Tavoy District. The dam will be constructed on the Tanintharyi River at A--- pool which lies 2.7 kilometres away from Moh Roh village.
