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.
8 years ago in the Kachin autonomous region in Burma 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.
Only after 4 years of heavy fighting, 100,000+ refugees and years of peace process that was not built to succeed, are a few people and NGO’s are starting to pay attention.
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.
we are sure you will want to help the Kachin achieve a peaceful future with human rights and self determination.
