The global humanitarian agency Church World Service is praising a new report that offers details about the suffering of Burma's citizens.
The report, "Internal Displacement and Protection in Eastern Burma," was prepared by the Thailand Burma Border Consortium, an alliance of non-government organizations working with displaced Burmese in Thailand and along the Thailand-Burma border.
In a news release Thursday, Church World Service accused Burma's military regime of being unrelenting in its suppression of political and ethnic opposition.
The Christian organization said that according to the report, Burmese have devised coping strategies, including hiding food supplies and preparing hiding sites in case they must avoid government counter-insurgency patrols.
Millions of Burmese have been displaced or have fled to other countries.
