March/April 2023 – The Building and Wood Workers’ International (BWI) is immensely vocal in its condemnation of the military junta’s atrocities against trade unionists in Myanmar. In a desperate effort to hold onto power and crush the democratic resistance, the military junta has been systematically persecuting Myanmar’s broad trade union movement, regarded as the tip of the spear in the country’s fight to restore democracy.
BWI reiterates its demand for the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners in Myanmar, including trade unionists who were unjustly detained for legitimately defending their rights and their country’s democracy.
