YANGON, Myanmar – The raid took place Feb. 7 as a response to university teachers who had joined the civil disobedient movement.
Female teachers congregated in the main building of the university, while locals gathered near the building to lend support.
Recently, the military announced it would take legal action against those who participate in the civil disobedience movement, and security forces are being deployed to universities and hospitals, where much of the leadership of the movement works. The officials open warning fire at night in most areas where there is open civil disobedience, and have arrested some NLD members.
