Our Chin youths working in China as illegal migrant workers got arrested, disappeared, got sick. Their parents are so worried and ask me for help. I feel their worry, their pain and it exhausts me emotionally and physically. The only things I can do: Call the police in Muse or Nay Pyi Taw, contact the people in China who can find the whereabouts of those migrant workers, write letter to ILO and pass on to MOFA and Ministry of Labour. Its been going like this for too long. We need to fix it . We need to ensure the migrant workers can work legally and safely. After this election, we need to fix this- otherwise I am so do damn tired. Note: There are many ethnic groups including Bama people from the heartland who illegally work in China and they have face these problems. Its about time we need to do something together.
