Myanmar conflict: Arakan violence rises in Rakhine state

In Myanmar’s Rakhine state, another ethnic group besides the Rohingya has been fighting for its rights and recognition.
The ethnic Arakan people have been battling the Myanmar government for decades, and in 2009 founded their own armed group, the Arakan Army, in 2009.
Thousands have fled the violence into neighbouring Chin State and are now living in camps because of the recent spike in violence.
Al Jazeera’s Scott Heidler reports.

    Some Burmese people are as stupid as their Government. Rohiynga’s don’t even speak Bengali. It doesn’t matter where they came from what matters is that they are living in Burma long enough to be citizen of the country. In Bangladesh people of all Tribes like Chakma,Marma study in public universities,work in Hospitals,Ministries,Military moreover they get special Quota reserved for them in every sector. It’s a shame that the stupid Burmese army doesn’t even consider them as Burmese citizen. Your country will never progress when you don’t give people their rights and treat them equally.

      what happened in last big sectarian riot between Buddhist and Islam is rohinya hunting arkan people with spear and gun because they hate Buddhist and Hindu there.

      you want them becoming a one?
      you stupid or nuts?

      the right thing to do is make arkan people got their right and push British aka England to responsible for bring Muslim Bengal aka rohinya from India to arkan land during colonial era.

    As a russian I think every internal issue is the country s internal affair.

    • Kucing Meow says:

      @Orthodox power you are not communist anymore, but under Putin most likely you would be conscripted to fight the Europeans in the future. Sometimes, your internal affair implosion causing distress to others, the refugees influx into others’ people lands is not simply internal affair anymore but a global concern.

    • Orthodox power says:

      @Kucing Meow I will fight the europeans with pleasure if they support ukrainian neonazis.

      Yes refugees from Myanmar sadly leave the country but that s because the militias that fight the government get foreign support.

    • Orthodox power says:

      @Stuart Hastie I know what s a gulag lol. I m asking what a gulag has to do with Myanmar?

    • Stuart Hastie says:

      Orthodox power
      For close to a decade, Myamar Junta has been constructing such places for the Rohingya. Sumtimes they simply isolate a village and surround it with barbed wire and watch towers. Food, water, electricity. education, education, employment, are all greatly, sometimes totally restricted. Access is denied to UN and international observers.
      Often the Rohingya are moved to new sites away from their ancestral property. This in part may be a land grab so China can complete its pipeline from the Bay of Bengal. In part it may be because these pieces of land are required for other development.

    • Stuart Hastie says:

      China will protect its oil pipeline and put a high tech naval base on the Bay of Bengal. The Rohingya stand no chance.

  • Cecilia Peng says:

    Can anyone tell me how many rebel armies are there in Burma? They seem to be everywhere, north, south, east and west. Taken the world as a whole, Burma should win the gold medal by the number of rebel groups inside its borders.

    • Stuart Hastie says:

      Cecilia Peng pretty much every ethnic minority tribe has its own rebel army. They have all been oppressed since independence. I was kidnapped by the Shan State Revolutionary Army, the Katchin independence Army and the Lahu independence Army, all living in the same camp.
      I’ve no hard feelings.

      The Junta is holding all the cards. The army has had 60 yrs of non stop experience of jungle warfare. Have near total control of the economy. Are backed by China, who want to protect their oil pipeline from bay of Bengal and build a naval base there. The Junta is no pushover.

    • Stuart Hastie says:

      Lord Ezra
      PS. From my experience, the tribal armies are poorly equipped and exaggerate their numbers ten fold. They also squabble with each other. There are ideological differences, the Shan State Revolutionary army are communist and in alliance with other tribes, but the Shan State Army is facist and despises true tribals.

  • MSW GAMING says:


  • Stuart Hastie says:

    Who has noticed that the oil pipe to China passes through Arakan ? China wants security for this pipe and probably wants a naval base on the Bay of Bengal. China doesn’t want terrorists sitting on the pipe.

    Go ahead AA. I heard only AA recognize rohingga as a citizen from Myanmar. AA demands like WA state confederacy that means their own army , own currency and they trying a establish a headquarter. But i am ashamed where they get arms , probably from WA state army backed by China. Actually ,China what wants from Burma. I fear that if the international party evolved here Myanmar will be broke into several independent.Ultimately, beneficial for India and Bangladesh . I heard from a newspaper , where Bangladesh foreign minister said one superpower country asked for BD if they want help. But, minister did not revealed this country name , most probably USA. Interestingly, minister refused to take help, because USA want a set up military base in a bay of bengal. If BD goverment allow USA millitary base in a Snt. martin islands it will be matter of minute of minutes independent Arakan or part of BD. But BD people and goverment do not want a foreign military base in their soil.
