Karen alone cannot build a Federal country and siding with Burmese military (with civilian clothes) government won't give you the freedom you have been fighting for over 60 years. If Karen leaders (KNU) don't learn from the mistake Kachin had made, then there will be another war that would cost dearly to Karen people. Dear KNU leaders listen to the voice of your own people and stick with UNFC, not with the killers of your people, not with rapists of your mothers, sisters and your daughters. I urge you to fight with UNFC for freedom for all. Don't sell the bloods of your people for the sake of a few business opportunity! Thanks Naw Jadup for sharing The Voice of Karen.
Kachin, tribal peoples occupying parts of northeastern Myanmar (Burma) and contiguous areas ofIndia (Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland) and China (Yunnan). The greatest number of Kachin live in Myanmar (roughly 790,000), but some 150,000 live in China and a few thousand in India. Numbering about 1012,000 in the late 20th century, they speak a variety of languages of the Tibeto-Burman group and are thereby distinguished as Jinghpaw, or Jingpo (Chingpaw [Ching-p’o], Singhpo), Atsi, Maru (Longvo), Lachid, Nung (Rawang), and Lisu .
The traditional Kachin religion is a form of animistic ancestor cult entailing animalsacrifice. As a result of the arrival of American and European missionaries in Burma beginning in the late 19th century, a majority of the Kachin are Christian, mainly Baptist and Roman Catholic. Among the Kachin in India, Buddhism predominates.
