Labour Resilience Against Class Warfare in Myanmar - Part 2

Continent of Resistance by Kevin Lin & Kriangsak Teera-Hong

Episode notes

In this episode, we present a two-part conversation on labour in post-coup Myanmar. More than two years after the coup, how has the labour movement fared? We spoke with labour activists Ma San and Ko Maung about organising garment workers and delivery riders, how activists navigate opportunities and constraints after the coup, and what workers can do to build sustainable and democratic organisation. In addition, we asked Stephen Campbell, a longtime researcher of labour in Myanmar at Nanyang Technological University, to sketch out political questions that are contentious within the labour movement. We end with a chat between Kiang and Kevin about a recent meeting on delivery riders in Bangkok, Thailand.
