Kyaw Ohn, 46, a farmer from Kyaunggon Township in the Ayeyarwady Region, said he had over 10 acres confiscated from him by the military government in the early 1990s. Since then, he has farmed a much smaller plot of land and works as a day laborer.  He and his family received no compensation or substitute land for the seizure of the land they depended on for their livelihood. He said his complaints to the government have received no response.
