The military council is setting fire to the villages around Leptaung Mountain where the Chinese copper projects are located. Civil protection groups in the area have told them not to continue with the project, but the Chinese company is trying to resume operations after they don’t comply. The military army is clearing nearby villages to protect the project.
The military council unit raided Moyeng Pyin (North) village of Sal Lingyi Township from June 21, arrested 2 people and killed them. The army of the military council attacked the village of Moen Pyeong North for a whole day and burned the whole village down.
Tens of thousands of local residents have fled from six villages around the Wang Pao Copper Project because the Terrorist Military Council Army has arrested villages near the copper project and carried out a series of murderous and violent arson attacks.
