The Second Proposed Draft of

Future Constitution of Kawthoolei
(Karen State)


The earliest settlers of the Irrawaddy Delta, the Sittang Valley,

southern Salween Valley, Tanessarim region and in the
adjoining hill areas of those regions, we, the Karen people,
had lived in freedom and in peace, before the advent of
feudalism. Only about an eight of the total population of
Karen people now live in the State of Kawthoolei and the
rest continue to live numerously, outside of Kawthoolei in
the above mentioned regions, not included in the State of
In the successive eras of feudalism, we the Karen
people had been ruthlessly exploited and systematically
prevented from advancement in all the fields of human
activities. When the system of oppression and subjection
was removed, we made rapid advances in the areas of
economic affairs, education, health, sports, politics and
culture, through industriousness and self-reliance, in a matter
of 60 years. However, after independence from the British,
the political immaturity, intolerance and above all racial
chauvinism, or ultra-nationalism of those in power had led
the country to civil war and the Dark Age of oppression,
subjugation and exploitation, again, for more than half a
century. In this Dark Age, the Karen people had to face
immense sufferings, unlike at any time in the history, and
the country as a whole, suffered a disastrous setback.
Accordingly, we, the Karen people in the Kawthoolei
State, will cooperate with the Karen people in other States
and all peace-loving nationalities to prevent the return of

As a nationality, we, the Karen people of Kawthoolei,
have had to struggle resolutely for freedom, justice, equality
and self-determination. In the spirit of fraternity, liberty
and equality we have joined together with the other
nationalities of the land, to be part of the Federal Union
of --------- and, reserving the right to freely work for
economic, educational, health, cultural and political
advancement of the Karen people, within the framework
of the federation, we will live in peace, together with all
the other nationalities of the federation, on the basis of
mutual friendship, respect, recognition, and cooperation.
