Twenty defiant families still staying in Myitsone village

Despite mounting pressure from the Burmese authorities, 20 families are still in Tanghpre village at the Myitsone hydro electric power project, where most villagers from around the project area have been forced to relocate to the new village called Aung Min Tar since 2010.
“They do not have a choice because there are no more houses or place for them in the new village, which is overcrowded,” said a source close to the villagers.
