Author Event: A Story From Burma's Never-Ending War

Embedded journalist Mac McClelland shares her experiences reporting from the troubled country.

Mac McClellandIt’s time the world understood what’s going on in Burma. It has more child soldiers than any other country, the CIA waged its first secret war there, and American money helps fund a genocide that’s been successfully hidden from global consciousness.

With an engaging presentation Mac McClelland, human rights correspondent for Mother Jones magazine, will illuminate these issues in a discussion of her new book, For Us Surrender Is Out of the Question: A Story From Burma’s Never-Ending War, about her time living with associates of a US-designated terrorist organization battling Burma’s dictatorship. This year the military junta will hold its first governmental elections in 20 years, which are certain to end in corruption, oppression, and international outcry, and McClelland will offer critical insight into a situation set to explode — again — onto the mediascape.
