Kachin State

2013

In the summer of 2012 Burmese troops broke a 17-year ceasefire and poured into KIA-held areas in Northern Myanmar’s Kachin State. The Christian Kachins have fought for ethnic equality for more than 50 years, and while Myanmar’s government says it wants reforms and peace in the many ethnic areas, new fights erupts daily. The conflict has ensured a steady flow of internally displaced persons – around 100,000 people along the front are believed to have fled the fighting. It may take years before they can return. These images are from an IDP-camp outside Myitkyina, the state capital.
