This news edition focuses on the Burmese military regime's referendum on its constitution. The referendum is an attempt by the military regime to placate the international community as it continues to oppress the people of Burma with forced displacement, destruction of villages, systematic mass rape and other crimes.

The Global Justice Center and Burma Lawyers' Council urges the international community to remember that these forty years of brutality are not just human rights abuses, but international crimes that should be referred to the International Criminal Court for investigation and prosecution.
