In February 2021, barely months after San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy returned to power in Myanmar, the military launched a coup and declared a state of emergency. When the people protested, the military responded violently, killing and detaining thousands of them, and forcing entire families to flee across the border to India. At last count, over 15,500 Burmese people had taken refuge in Mizoram alone.
This is their story.
