This policy report examines the violence that shook Mandalay on July 1-2, 2014 – the latest in a series of communal riots that have fueled religious tensions across Myanmar. The report’s main finding is that the Mandalay riots were designed to appear as a spontaneous outbreak of mob violence, but in fact were perpetrated by an organized gang of armed men brought in from outside Mandalay according to a script written and stage-managed by hidden hands for political ends.

This report investigates the human rights violations at Letpadaung copper mine. It looks at the copper mine project, the communities’ reasons against it and the police action taken to crush the Letpadaung protests. The report’s main finding is that the contracts between the company and villagers were illegal due to duress and fraud; the police denied citizens right to peaceful assembly as guaranteed under the Constitution and used phosphorus incendiary smoke grenades to disperse crowds resulting in grievous injuries to protestors.
