Myanmar Emerges is a year-long GlobalPost investigation into challenges facing Myanmar's nascent democracy. Part One of the series, The People vs. The Power, examines the battle between villagers and a Myanmar and Chinese government-backed mining company they say is stealing their land and ruining the environment.

Resource Righteousness follows 38-year-old farmer Yee Yee Win, whose land lies at the edge of the Wanbao copper mine. After a violent crackdown on protesters last November, Yee Yee Win decided to sue Myanmar’s president, U Thein Sein. In a country with a human rights record like Myanmar, the fact that Ye Ye Win is not in jail shows progress. But she says, not nearly enough.
