Her family is one of five Muslim families living in Klong Sai Pattana. Villagers of Klong Sai Pattana say a palm oil company are responsible for targeted killings and harassment of their community.
For decades the company has illegally occupied and cultivated palm oil trees on a 535-acre plot of land in the Chai Buri District of Surat Thani Province. This community of around 70 families have been embroiled in a conflict with Jiew Kang Jue Pattana Co Ltd since 2008.
Janya left her home province for the opportunity to have a plot of land despite the danger. In the structure of the village, she is in charge of administration and preparing legal documents for officials and court appearances.
