Beware Myanmar’s New Information War
"An internet blackout imposed by Myanmar’s government in parts of conflict-ridden Rakhine and Chin states has now been in place for nearly two months. It’s raising deep concerns about the safety of civilians in a region where researchers have already documented gross human rights violations by the military. The measure also harks back to the tight control of information under junta rule and is the latest in a long line of attacks on free speech." - Preeti Jha, The Diplomat

Rights Groups: Internet Shutdown in Myanmar’s Rakhine Hampers Aid Work, Causes Hardship
"Rights groups inside and outside Myanmar have called on the government to end the month-long shutdown of internet service in nine townships in the country’s war-torn western region, saying the move has had detrimental effects on the delivery of humanitarian aid to thousands of civilians displaced by armed conflict. 'The internet shutdown in Rakhine state has caused many hardships for the organizations providing the humanitarian assistance since we cannot effectively connect with the contacts we work with,' Nickey Diamond, a Myanmar human rights specialist with Asia-based Fortify Rights, told RFA’s Myanmar Service. 'We appeal to the government to resolve the internet shutdown as soon as possible,' he said." - Kyaw Lwin Oo, Radio Free Asia
