    Bangladesh: IPs Massacred for Land Grab, 23 February 2010

    Over 100 tribals arrested in Bangladesh: Visiting Home Minister urged to stop impending violence and release the innocent, 24 February 2010

    This report exposes the massacre of indigenous Jumma peoples in the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh for grabbing their lands. The Bangladeshi government is yet to provide access to the massacre sites where scores of indigenous Chakmas in 14 villages under Sajek Union were massacred on 19-20 February 2010. In order to prevent the truth from coming out, the Bangladesh army personnel have prevented journalists from visiting the affected areas. The police further arrested the indigenous peoples who came to obtain medical treatment for the bulltet injuries sustained in the firing by the Bangladesh army personnel.

    Who funds the acts of racism and racial discrimination in the Chittagong Hill Tracts?

Since 1978, the government of Bangladesh has been providing "free food rations" to 28,000 plain settlers. The indigenous peoples, who are victimiaed by these settlers, are not provided any assistance. Who funds these acts of racial discrimination? ... More
