With changing dynamics between the Rohingya and Rakhine populations and the Tatmadaw (the armed forces of Myanmar), Rakhine State in Myanmar has been in a state of conflict. Most recently, the clash between the Arakan Army and the Tatmadaw saw open conflict erupt on 25 August 2018. These conflicts have resulted in significant loss of lives, livelihoods, and homes with more than 150,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Rakhine State. Some have been living in camps since 2012, and at least 700,000 others in Cox’s Bazaar, the main refugee settlement in Bangladesh.
Hi all. I'm Michele Sullivan, to whom Mr Sebesta is referring. I appreciate his bringing the Yakan Plantation Project name to this group. Im a journalist of 40 years, so Im used to telling a story from all sides, which is what I am doing. If you have any interest or expertise in American colonialism in the Philippines, the Yakan tribe, Japanese Fifth Column activities in southern Mindanao, the Japanese occupation of southern Mindanao, particularly Zamboanga, pelase do contact me. I am posting a general informational piece about the project on this network as well.
I am producer of The Yakan Plantation Project, which focuses on the life of my great great Uncle, William Doniphan (Don) Robinson, founder of Yakan Plantation on Basilan Island, and his wife, Ann Hodges Robinson, from the period 1941-1949.
Review published by H-Asia earlier this month:
Incidentally there is a descendant of Robinson who has some type of nostalgic project related to the Yakan Plantation. Interesting parallel to Americans having nostalgic feelings for plantations in the American South. https://www.facebook.com/bossymissymedia/
