In this photo taken on Sept. 15, 2012, Nay Myo Wai, chairman of Peace and Diversity party and a land rights activist, talks during an interview in Yangon, Myanmar. The landscape of Mingaladon township, northern outskirts of Yangon, tells a story of economic upheaval. Skeletons of factories for a new industrial zone rise from thick green rice paddies local farmers say were seized illegally by the Zaykabar Company, one of Myanmar’s most powerful companies. Human rights groups say land battles could intensify because companies tied to the military and business elite are rushing to grab land as the country emerges from five decades of isolation and opens its economy. Nay Myo Wai is leading the farmers in their fight against the company. (AP Photo/Khin Maung Win)
