Maung Maung Tinn – Water Colour Paintings – 5

 

Let them smile until they understand the situation in their country

The photo which inspired this painting was taken inside Mae La refugee camp for Karen people. The camp is called by the Thai authorities a “temporary shelter for people fleeing conflict”, but it has been here for nearly 20 years. The people living inside it are not recognised as refugees. Will they be forced to go back to Burma? Will they be forced to leave forever? By MMT
