Preface
People can create a better world if they have the desire, enthusiasm andknowledge to do so. Furthermore, unity of thought and unity of action are neededin the international community to bring about positive changes and sustainabledevelopment around the globe. In a long list of important goals, eradication ofpoverty and protection and promotion of human rights and environmental rightsare top priorities.People power is pivotal and improving the connections among individuals,organizations and governments is essential. Greater knowledge is important atevery level and every actor in the international community must strive to create abetter world in the future. Of course, this improvement would come from bothlocal and global actions.In fact, to my knowledge, the students and EarthRights School (ERS) itself aretrying their best to cooperate and to coordinate with the international communityfor the above-mentioned noble tasks. By starting from localized actions, manyethnic youths from various areas of Burma come, study and have been workingtogether at ERS. They exchange their experiences and promote knowledge andexpertise not only during their school term but also after they graduate andthrough practical work that improves society.In Burma, according to the international communitys highly-regarded researchand field documents, human rights violations are rampant, poverty is too high,environmental issues are neglected and good governance is non-existent. Thismay be a normal situation under military dictatorships around the world but it isnot a permanent situation and history has proved that if democratic people haveenough power, things will change sooner or later.The ERS and its students now express their experiences and future vision andversion in this timely book. I believe that it is insightful, fruitful and an excellentreport from Burma to the international community through ERS. I do also hopethat their effort will effectively draw the attention of people inside and outsideBurma to create a better Burma and world.Thein OoSecretaryMembers of Parliament Union (Burma)Chairman, Burma Lawyers Council
