Six years ago in the Kachin autonomous region in Burma when I started documenting it, there was no fighting, no refugee camps, no burnt villages and few recent cases of serious human rights abuses.
Today the situation is infinitely worst than anytime in the last 20 years. It is deeply disturbing that as the number of human rights abuses grows, so does the applause and rewards for the government perpetrating them.
This site is designed to tell you what the Burmese generals do not want you to hear about Free Kachin, an area controlled by the Kachin Independence Organization in the foothills of the Himalaya where Kachins can live with human rights & self-determination.
If you spend just an hour or two reading the about pages on the right, watch the Kachin documentary, study the Kachin photos and subscribe to our blog, we hope you will learn about and connect with these beautiful people. If we have presented the Kachin and their situation well we are sure you will want to help the Kachin achieve a peaceful future with human rights and self determination.
