In Chin State, Thantlang was the most affected, and Mindat was the second. Everyone knows that the military council will not listen to what anyone says but instead is trying to crush all the revolutionary people with all its might. The CDF-Mindat cannot defend against air attacks or fight back against them yet. But there are many things we can do. If the fundraising campaign we are doing now is successful, there are many things we can do on the ground.”
