LOCATION:Room 3.02 DESCRIPTION:On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar military staged a coup and over turned the civilian government under the leadership of Aung San Suu Kyi bef ore the start of a new term. Ten years of democratic transition ended overn ight. Since then, the military has faced strong and broad-based resistance which spans across ethnic, religious, class-based and generational divides in the country. To begin with, this took the form of large-scale and innova tive street protests, online campaigns, and a broad-based civil disobedienc e movement (CDM) comprising public and private sector workers who refuse to work under a military regime. Among CDM members are also police officers a nd soldiers. Since April, the opposition to the military has become more po litically organized, with the formation of the National Unity Government (N UG) operating in exile and pledging for a new federal democracy. Simultaneo usly, armed resistance and people’s defense forces (PDFs) have emerged, res ulting in new sites of violence and country-wide conflict. This panel will include presentations that explore the evolvement of the opposition to the military, its diversity, challenges, and tactics.
