Welcome to Thoo Mweh Khee

Exploring the abuses suffered by the Karen people at the hands of the Burmese army

Welcome to Thoo Mweh Khee At Thoo Mweh Khee Learning Centre in Tak province, western Thailand, refugees from Karen State in Burma are fighting back against the brutal Burmese regime - through education. This documentary explores how the Karen people have been persecuted and oppressed by the Burmese state in the course of the world's longest running civil war stretching back to 1949, and Thoo Mweh Khee's staff and students demonstrate how the extraordinary spirit of the Karen people has been able to endure in the face of genocidal violence.
