YANGON - The military coup in Myanmar has taken a severe toll on the abilities of trade unions and civil society organisations to protect workers and migrants, according to a new report from the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Entitled 'Riding out the storm: Organizational resilience of trade unions and civil society organizations following the military takeover in Myanmar', the new study details the impact of the February 2021 takeover on unions and other organisations.

It highlights how targeted persecution - including arbitrary arrests, detentions, violence, raids on homes and offices, seizure of equipment, threatening phone calls, interrogations and surveillance - has substantially limited the ability of these groups to operate.
