Karen villages and their struggles in North Thailand

In the mountainous region of Northwest Thailand, transnational investors and large food companies interests pose a threat to indigenous Karen communities. In Nong Tao and Mae Sa, villagers encounter many problems because of dams and contract farming with large agriculture companies that determine the conditions of production. These communities remain resilient and continue to protect their land from destructive projects and corporate interests.
