Kachin people living in China gather at the border town of Nar Pan on January 10 to show their support for fellow Kachin across the border in Laiza and call for an end to fighting in Kachin State. About 1500 people attended the demonstration on Kachin State Day in what one Laiza resident described as an unprecedented display of Kachin solidarity.
