Myanmar land reform: Calls for new law to be scrapped

Karen state farmers speak to Al Jazeera about losing their land.
 

 
 
Rights groups are calling on Myanmar's government to scrap a new land reform law they fear could leave millions of people with nowhere to call home.
 
The new law would require people in some regions to apply for permission to use the land they are working or living on.
 
Activists call it a land grab that makes criminals of innocent communities.
 
Al Jazeera's Alexi O'Brien reports.
