Dealing with Burma's Devil
Recently Ginny trucked deep into Thailand reaching the Moi River, which runs along the border of Burma and Thailand. She was there to report on the cross-border smuggling and human trafficking that goes on. After she completed this assignment took to a boat to cross the Moi River into Burma and into Karen freedom fighter country.
The Karen are one of the main ethnic guerilla forces that have been waging war against the military junta in Burma for decades. Ginny met with the rebels, stayed overnight in their camp, and talked to the soldiers about their campaign against Burma's military dictatorship.
Ginny was on the move through deep jungle and needed to keep her kit to a minimum. The PD150 and Miller tripod let her travel lightly, but still ensured she captured broadcast quality video, aired on SBS's Dateline Program, during Australian primetime television. YOu can read the transcript of the Ginny's report on http://www.sbs.com.au/dateline/index.php3?daysum=2004-02-11
