Myanmar: Karen minority demands protection in peace park

Despite a ceasefire agreed upon in 2012, a fight by Myanmar’s Karen ethnic minority for greater autonomy continues.

The Karen ethnic minority in Myanmar has been fighting for greater autonomy for 70 years.

One of the world’s longest-running civil wars has displaced hundreds of thousands of people.

Now, community leaders say they are determined to be part of a peace-building process and have created a park to do just that.
