Banished in Burma
Fifty years of civil war under a military junta has left Burma devastated, submerged in human rights abuses, poverty, and instability. An estimated 1 million people are internally displaced and another million have fled across borders. Particularly targeted are indigenous groups, including the Mon, Shan, Karen, and Karenni people. Originally fighting for autonomy from the Burman majority, they are now fighting for basic human rights and the right to continue living on ancestral lands.
