#Myanmar #burma #civic #organsiation #MATA #demonstrated #against the #Letpadaungtaung #clash

January 6, 2015

The civic organsiation Myanmar Alliance for Transparency and Accountability (MATA) demonstrated in Monywa Township against the Letpadaungtaung clash on January 5, denouncing the police crackdown on protesters.
“We stand together with the Letpadaungtaung farmers. The owners of our country’s natural resources are the ethnic minorities,” said Tun Myint Aung, member of the MATA.
He continued: “I see natural resources being seized by a small group of people and companies. Ethnic minorities do not benefit from their local resources. What is worse, they have become homeless.”
Protestors demanded the truth about the killing of female farmer Khin Win, an end to land confiscation, respect for people and their traditions, protection of the environment and transparency and accountability from companies and government authorities. photocr. Thar Pauk
