Are the ethnic people in Burma being abandoned? The ethnic Kachins are under siege in northern Burma. Hundreds of battalions of Burmese troops have surrounded Kachin state, causing over 60,000 refugees (internally displaced people) to flee. While the world is dropping sanctions against the military regime in Burma the Kachins are fending off a siege. Woman are raped and killed and thousands of children suffer. It appears as if the world is ignoring the Kachin war and downplaying the crisis so they can grab the region’s resources. The international community should demand the Burma army withdraw from Kachin State immediately.
