Inhaltsangabe zu „Secret Genocide“ von Daniel Pedersen

Gripping and honest, Secret Genocide gives a voice to a people the world has forgotten. It shows the Karen don't want charity from the Western World; they are simply fighting for the right to live their lives - in peace and without fear. Journalist and author Daniel Pedersen explores the reasons men resort to violence to consolidate personal fiefdoms at the expense of their own people. He delves deep into the jungles of Burma, travelling into the heart of Karen State to interview some of the most of the most influential members of the Karen National Union and Karen National Liberation Army as well as aid workers, NGOs and everyday people living on the ground. In a series of interviews, Pederson allows the people behind the world's longest running conflict to say in their own words, what their motivations are, and why they will not stop fighting until they see jusitice done. Pedersen also asks the reader to consider the legal definition of genocide, a term conceived by global leaders as they recoiled from the horrors of World War II, and to decide if what is happening in Burma right now constitues genocide. If so, he asks, what are we to do about it?
