Indigenous People's Fight to Restore the Forest in Myanmar's Coal Mining Heart


The Indigenous people living near Myanmar's largest coal power plant have led many peaceful protests, calling for the shutdown of the site, land restitution, and reforestation.

However, in the minds of Myanmar lawmakers, reforestation of small areas should solve the problem of air and water pollution.

In addition, they plan the construction of more coal power plants across the country, speeding up the forest cover loss and generating new pollution-related problems.
