About The Kachin Post
The Kachin Post is an independent news organization established in January 2002 to promote independent media in Burma. On February 6, 2002, The Kachin Post published the first inaugural Kachin-language newspaper in almost 40 years, since Burma’s military government shut down the first Kachin independent newspaper Jinghpaw Prat in 1962. The printed edition of The Kachin Post became the second independent Kachin newspaper in history.
In March 2003, The Kachin Post launched a bi-lingual (Kachin and English) language website for several years. In 2019, The Kachin Post renewed its operation by launching an English-language news website to cover news related to issues affecting communities in Burma’s border areas near China. The organization places its reporters in Kachin State, northern Shan State and Wa self-administered region of eastern Shan State along the China-Burma border.
The Kachin Post strives to promote independent media coverage of issues on the China-Burma borderland. The Kachin Post always adheres to a strict policy of journalistic autonomy and it’s independent of any political organization.
