Yangon, October (7)

Civil servants who took part in the nonviolent Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) for more than a year and a half after the military coup have faced a range of problems, but they asserted that they have no plans to turn back.

Tens of thousands of people staged a massive protest against military coup last year chanting “Don’t go to office, let’s fight. People will feed CDM staff.”

However, those slogans have been completely silenced at the moment, and CDM employees are struggling to survive.

In a country where all sectors are deteriorating, CDM workers are struggling to solve the problem of supporting their families by working whatever jobs they can, but they are facing inconveniences every day.

But the CDM staff are determined not to turn back the way they came from, no matter what difficulties they face.

The coup military council, on the other hand, used various methods to threaten, oppress, arrest, and evict CDM civil servants from staff housing, causing CDM workers to flee due to insecurity.

Employers are also reluctant to hire CDM staff from Sagaing and Magway regions, where armed resistance against the military council is strong.

On the other hand, CDM staff are still being monitored by military council and informants, and are still facing mental insecurity.

CDM employees work as vendors and motorcycle taxi drivers to make ends meet and suffer from high general commodity prices.

In Myanmar, there are hundreds of thousands of civil servants participating in the CDM campaign against the coup council, and most of them are academic staff.
