Christmas at The Maela Refugee Camp
Myanmar, Karen State, Burma, Thailand

The Thai-Burmese border area is an exotic and dangerous paradise at the same time. However, for most people, it is unknown.

Nearly 30 years ago, the first Karen minority refugees who escaped Myanmar arrived to this area. Today more than 50,000 people are living at the Maela refugee camp, situated 70 km north of MaeSot, a recently economically booming border city.

Although at first glance this might seem like an idyllic village, where the quality of life of its inhabitants is much higher than the "normal" standard of other refugees around the world, the Burmese who live in the camp have suffered the most atrocious violence by the Myanmar army. The majority of the camp resident are Christians. During Christmas Eve and holy days, they celebrate in the numerous Churches spread around the camp. Night shows and masses attract the devotes to the Churches and presents are distributed. The camp's residents have been stuck in a small corner of tropical forest with no choice but to live with dignity between the barbed wire fences surrounding the camp, under strict control of the Thai army.

A ceasefire was signed between the Karen leaders and the Myanmar authorities. However,there are many rumors about the Karen being repatriated back to their country which is a first step on the long way of reconciliation.

Andrei served in the Soviet Army for 19 months in Kabul, and doesn't understand why the unarmed students had to be attacked. "If they didn't attack so intensely, the protests would have dissolved" he adds. He says he first came to the protests to watch, but later he decided to stay and join their efforts. Even though he was forced to go to Afghanistan with the army at just 18 years old, he finds it important now he's standing up for his own people in his land: "Yanukovych isn't Ukraine, he is not representing us, he's just friends with a dictator: Putin. We want a democratic country where people have rights, like in other European countries."

Oleg, 42, was with the radio team of the Soviet Airborne Troops in Tskhinvali, now south Ossetia, in the Caucasus, between 1990 and 92. Now he stands in front of a memorial for all the people who have been injuried by Berkuts, a special unit of riot police known for its use of violence. For him, to try to kick peaceful people out of Maidan Square was the last drop after years of suffering under the bad ruling of the country. "It's not a government we should call it Mafia," he says. He continues, " I thought we would have never come back to Maidan after the Orange Revolution but no, in 2013, I had to come back."
