The eviction ended an early-morning raid in Yangon on staff housing where most workers had joined the Civil Disobedience Movement, and who now say they have nowhere to go.
Police and soldiers evicted more than 1,000 Myanma Railways staff from their state-owned homes today for participating in the Civil Disobedience Movement, which has seen workers across government refuse to attend work in order to topple the military.
Hundreds of police and soldiers raided the staff housing compound in Yangon’s Tarmwe Township at about 6am and for much of the morning blocked all exits and entrances to and from the compound, raising fears among residents of imminent violence.
Police initially arrested three locomotive drivers but by noon began forcibly evicting everyone, shouting that their homes would be bulldozed and they and their families would be shot and killed if they refused to leave.
