From The Socialist newspaper, 23 February 2022

One year after the military coup in Myanmar, mass resistance continues

"The regime's failure to control the country has taken many by surprise. The new generation does not want to allow any form of political domination by the military.

"However, the regime continues to kill, torture and arrest the people who continue to rise up against them. To date, the junta has killed nearly 1,500 residents, over one hundred have been tortured to death, and nearly 11,300 have been arrested.

"We can expect these atrocities to continue and, with that, the anger and determination of the people to abolish Tatmadaw's (Myanmar's military) power will also grow stronger!"

The above is from an article by Yuva Balan, marking one year since the Myanmar military launched its coup on 1 February 2021, which can be read on the CWI's website - socialistworld.net.

The coup d'état ousted the governing National League for Democracy of Aung San Suu Kyi and annulled the November 2020 general election result.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
