IN A LAND OF LIMITED electricity, radio is a lifeline. Millions of Burmese rely on the airwaves for their main source of news, commentary, and insight into events beyond their small and often remote communities.
Ah Mee, a radio and video reporter and ethnic Lisu from Kachin State, has an acute sense of what it's like to live in territories still steeped in virtual silence.
"In the whole Kachin State, there are maybe a handful of journalists," she said "It's similar in Shan State. It's just not enough."
