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.
On November 29, 2012, the Myanmar government responded to a peaceful protest by firing smoke grenades with white phosphorus munitions. More than 100 monks and civilians were burned, some as young as 16 years old. Poisoned Hope looks at the ongoing protest, and the damage it's done to the reputation of nobel peace prize laureate Aun San Suu Kyi.
