  • #IndependenceMovementoftheDay is Kachin🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲 Capital Myitkyina Population 1,689,441 Area 89,041 km2 Language Jingpho Religion Buddhist Currency Burmese kyat Part of Myanmar Kachin State  is the northernmost state of Myanmar. It is bordered by China to the north and east. Kachin State has Myanmar's highest mountain, Hkakabo Razi (5,889 metres (19,321 ft)), forming the southern tip of the Himalayas, and a large inland lake, Indawgyi Lake Renewed fighting between the Kachin Independence Army and the Burmese army began on June 9, 2011 at Ta-pein hydropower plant and continued throughout 2012. Initial reports suggested that from June to September 2011 a total of 5,580 Internally Displaced Persons from 1,397 households arrived at 38 IDP camps under Myanmar Government control.In August, 2012 thousands of Kachin refugees were forced by the Chinese Government back into Myanmar despite the continued fighting there; NGOs like Human Rights Watch called to cease such action and pointed the illegality of doing so under international law. As of October 9, 2012, over 100,000 IDPs are taking shelter in various camps across Kachin State. The majority of IDPs (est. 70,000) are currently sheltering in KIA controlled territory. Fatality estimates were difficult to estimate but most reports suggested that between government troops, Kachin Independence Army rebels, and civilians upwards of 1,000 people had died in the conflict. Even though many Kachins were already displaced internally, only around 150,000 people are reported as IDPs. The Kachins are currently the major target for the Burmese government, yet only few Kachins have resettled in the United States or in Australia, as compared to other Myanmar ethnics (such as the Karens and Chins). The economy of Kachin State is predominantly agricultural. The main products include rice, teak, sugar cane, opium. Mineral products include gold and jade. 🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲 To suggest a country or movement follow and comment Text from Wikipedia 🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲

  • High above the city of Quito, swinging without a care in the world. Did you know Quito was the first city to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in 1978, UNESCO named two locations in Ecuador: Quito and the Galapagos Islands. You can tell these were first and second among the initial 12 by their UNESCO ID numbers!

  • "Intuizione e Follia" - Jaisalmer #India (2017) ~ * “Dedicato ai folli, agli anticonformisti, ai ribelli, ai piantagrane, a tutti coloro che vedono le cose in modo diverso. Costoro non amano le regole, specie i regolamenti, e non hanno alcun rispetto per lo status quo. Potete citarli, essere in disaccordo con loro, potete glorificarli o denigrarli. Ma l’unica cosa che non potrete mai fare loro, è ignorarli. Perchè riescono a cambiare le cose, perchè fanno progredire l’umanità. E mentre qualcuno potrebbe definirli folli, noi ne vediamo il genio. Perchè solo coloro che sono abbastanza folli da pensare di poter cambiare il mondo, lo cambiano davvero.” [Steve Jobs]
