Abstract

Geff Green focuses on the communication approaches taken by the Karen communities displaced from Burma and who live in diaspora. Apparent control and empowerment provided by new technologies may be illusive. When using media for warfare or perhaps for more innocuous public relations purposes, activists may actually create ‘ammunition’ for opponents. Targeted attacks on specific communities or ‘audiences’ have a high impact by reifying discourse in a devastating way by connecting to lived experience in the victims
