The Chiang Mai forest fires have claimed over 700 football fields of forests and the lives of at least seven people. Firefighting efforts are well underway, but they are currently limited by red-tape and lack of public awareness.
What exactly is causing these fires and how can we help out from Singapore? How is COVID-19 affecting relief efforts? Explore these questions and more in our virtual teach-in with an indigenous Karen leader and four grassroots activists, who are working hard to support the firefighting on the ground.
SGCR has hosted the teach-in live at tinyurl.com/SGCRTeachIn! The teach-in included sections for live Q&As. Tune in and show your solidarity with our Thai friends during this circuit breaker!
