The Jummo


The Jumma, a native people of the Chittagong Hill Tracts, are being violently displaced from their villages and land by poor Bangladeshi farmers who pour into the Tracts. A government-led campaign aims to permanently alter the demographic make-up of CHT – the army confiscates Jumma land and settlers attack Jumma villages. In recent years there has been an unremitting series of violent attacks against the Jummas.
