About Northern Alliance (Burma)
The Northern Alliance (Burma) is an ethnic revolutionary armies group comprising of the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), Ta-ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), and the Arakan Army (AA), which is fighting for the rights of national self-determination, equal political rights, people’s rights, peace and social justice. Our ultimate goal is to establish a genuine federal democratic union of Myanmar where a constitutional guarantee for a certain degree of autonomy for non-Burman ethnic peoples will be provided. We always call for a genuine political dialogue to settle almost 70 years of ethnic conflict and civil war in Myanmar.
As we are a collective self-defense alliance formed by ordinary local ethnic peoples, our mission is to prevent wars, massive attacks, extra-judicial killings, war crimes, and gross human rights violations committed and executed by the Burma army in the territories of ethnic peoples such as Kachin, Northern Shan state, Karen, and Rakhine.
