The Fifth Edition of UNPO’s Hmong Newsletter is Here!
Have you ever heard of the Hmong people living in Laos?
Did you know that during the Vietnam War, the American army led a “Secret War” with their help?
Did you know that today, a couple of thousands of them live in the hostile Laotian jungle, fleeing persecution by the government?
UNPO has decided to launch a series of newsletters focusing on the Hmong. Because the world can no longer turn a blind eye on the gross human rights violations committed against them, this campaign aims at raising awareness about the plight of the Hmong living in the Laotian jungle and beyond.
For this month’s edition, we have decided to put the spotlight on on Hmong children and the latest news regarding the Hmong in the United States.
Download the March 2018 edition of the UNPO Hmong Newsletter here and follow the campaign on social media with the hashtag: #HmongInIsolation.
UNPO also has the pleasure to announce two upcoming events focussing on the Hmong:
The Hmong’s struggle to shed the legacy of the Vietnam War
(14 March, Washington, DC)
The Hmong: forced into isolation in Laos
(11 April 2018, Brussels)
