Almost two decades after the war in Bosnia & Herzegovina ended with the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement, the country remains threatened by more than 120,000 landmines, a dark legacy of the war, buried in the ground along former frontlines. As urban areas are meanwhile largely demined, people living in the remote landside of Bosnia are permanently threatened by the silent hazard near their homes.

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

24 Dec 2013

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.

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."

Logar was one of the worst areas during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Oleg was chosen by other veteran as chief when he decided to join Maidan after the violence of police against the protesters on November 30. He doesn't know what will happen next. "Well," he adds, "we remain here and we will protect the people because we know the price of life, blood and death."
