I spent a year sharing the life of the young Karenni men and women who joined the resistance against the Burmese military dictatorship following the military coup on 1 February 2021. I witnessed the fighting, the comradeship, and the grief. This region near the Thai border made international headlines when more than 35 people, including four children and two humanitarian workers, were burned alive by the military on December 24th, 2021. It is a stronghold of Catholicism in the Buddhist-majority country.
