The eleven tribes of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, collectively known as the Jummas, have suffered from both displacement by settlers and violence from the Bangladesh military.
Although a peace accord was signed in 1997, arrests and intimidation of activists, rape of Jumma women and other human rights abuses remain rife. Land continues to be stolen from the Jumma tribal people by both the army and by settlers.
How you can help
Please write to the Prime Minister of Bangladesh expressing your concern about the government’s failure to implement the 1997 peace deal.
