This post presents a translation of a passage about the colonial era oil field strikes in Myanmar, taken from page 10 of the April 2012 issue of the Yaung Chi Oo Workers Association newspaper. This text originally appeared in Yebaw (Comrade) Htun Oo's book The emergence of the working class in Burma and the history of working class activism. The portrait at the top of the page is of Thakin Po Hla Kyi (as represented on the 45 kyat note).
