The Mon Information Home Page

Modern day Burma

This home page provides information about the Mon people. There are several million Mon people in Burma and Thailand. Mon people are experiencing brutal repression at the hands of the Burmese government. Everyone concerned with human rights should be aware of the case of the Mon.

Note: Mon is not the same as Hmong. Mon people come from southern Burma and Thailand. Hmong people come from northern Laos and Thailand.
