About "A Land Without Evil"

A journalist and activist with the human rights organization Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Benedict Rogers offers an eye-opening account of the ongoing atrocities committed by Burma's ruling military regime against the Karen people.
- Koorong

The gentle Karen, a tribe in Burma's eastern regions, call their country a land without evil. They number between four and five million, and have been fighting for half a century to keep their land and identity. Many - at least 40 per cent - are Christians, and have suffered particularly harsh treatment. Burma today, and Karen State in particular, is a land torn apart by evil. It is a land ruled by a regime which took power by force, ignored the will of the people in an election, and survives by creating a climate of fear. It is a land terrorised by a military regime which to this day perpetrates a catalogue of crimes against humanity. It takes people for forced labour, uses villagers as human minesweepers, captures children and forces them to become soldiers, systematically rapes ethnic minority women, and burns down villages and crops. It is a regime which has killed thousands of people in the ethnic minority areas. This compassionate but unflinching account of the Karen's predicament is an important step in galvanising Western opinion about this ongoing act of genocide.
