Burma's Hidden Genocide,

Mac Mc Clelland, Human Rights reporter for Mother Jones Magazine, joins host Linda Olson-Osterlund to talk about her new book For Us Surrender is Out Of The Question: A story from Burma's never-ending war. She brings us the story of the forgotten war in Burma and of the courageous young refugees she stayed with in Thailand. They risk their lives to document the horrors taking place in their home across the border. The crisis in Burma is accelerating rapidly as the military junta that runs Burma, or Myanmar as they renamed it, are engaged in a rapid push to subdue border area minority peoples. With Spring elections planned, they want no distractions.

The author will be speaking at Mercy Corps headquarters, 28 bSW 1st ave, Portland , OR 97204 tuesday March, 30th, 7pm
