CNN explains Mae La and the Karen

In case you missed it, CNN recently put up a great Website about the Karen in Mae La Camp in Thailand. Click here to access the story. This information might be of interest to anyone who wonders “Who are the Karen and why are they here?”

The site includes:
  • A news story
  • Three videos
  • A slideshow (with Karen folk singing—you might want to start with the volume on “low.”
  • An “explainer” with maps and statistical information
  • Historical backgrounder on the plight of the Karen people

  • You can navigate using the red tabs just above the story, or the embedded links within the story itself. Each section is fairly short, so there isn’t too much information to overwhelm you. This is very informative, accessible, and interesting!
