Chin National Front

   An ethnic minority movement claiming to represent the interests of the Chins, established in 1985. Its armed contingent, the Chin National Army (CNA), was organized in the wake of the 1988 prodemocracy movement, and about 100 CNA soldiers were trained by the Kachin Independence Organization/ Army. In 1989 the CNF/CNA became a member of the Democratic Alliance of Burma, but it has suffered from factional splits. As of 2004 it had not signed a cease-fire with the State Peace and Development Council.
