We have worked with the Akha people of SE Asia for nearly 20 years to protect land rights. We are campaigning for the return of land seized by the Queen of Thailand. In 2009 we did the "Ride for Freedom" across the US to the UN by horseback, 382 days. Now we are planning the "Sail for Freedom" five years around the world by sailing ship for the Akha people and their land.
