Podcast: Dawei residents fear land grab

This week, Doh Athan speaks to anxious Dawei locals, who fear their beach is being snapped up by investors.

Vendors on Phoe Phoe Kyauk Beach are being told they must close up shop because a private company now has the rights to the beach.

This story was reported by Kyaw Thu Soe of Dawei Watch, and Zar Ni and Aye Aye Aung from Frontier.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast that looks at human rights issues from around Myanmar. It is made by Frontier with media partners from around the country through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle, and with the support of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.
