What's happening in Myanmar?

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, has a long and complex history. Myanmar has suffered decades of repressive military rule, widespread poverty, and civil war with ethnic minority groups. A military coup in February 2021 dashed hopes for democratic reforms in this country.

Since the coup, junta authorities have arbitrarily arrested more than 16,000 pro-democracy supporters. Many former detainees alleged torture or other ill-treatment, such as sexual violence, during their detention. The junta security forces have carried out mass killings, arbitrary arrests, torture, sexual violence, and other abuses that amount to crimes against humanity. Freedom of speech and assembly face severe restrictions.

Since the coup on February 1, 2021, the country has been living under a military dictatorship. Because of alleged election fraud, the military led by General Min Aung Hlaing suspended the popularly democratically elected government and declared a state of emergency.

The military faces widespread, fierce opposition from ethnic armed organizations and ordinary citizens who organized militias. Vowing to resist the military junta, former lawmakers and activists formed a shadow government and mobilized fighting forces across the country. The military has responded with a brutal crackdown on opposition forces and protesters. Since then people that express their opinion against the fascist military coup are getting kidnapped or even killed. We want to express our solidarity with the freedom fighters in Myanmar and the close enviorment.

The military’s brutal crackdown on dissent and widespread abuses in the conflict have drawn condemnation from the United Nations, foreign governments, and rights organizations. In the initial aftermath of the coup, military forces shot live ammunition at civilian protesters and into people’s homes. By late 2021, the military was destroying entire villages believed to support the opposition, massacring both civilians and opposition fighters.

The violent military coup has destroyed the country's economic performance, wiping out modest gains in poverty reduction made over the past decade; the health-care system has collapsed. Millions of people are facing not only widespread violence, but also hunger, and tens of thousands have fled to other parts of Myanmar or across the borders.

Who is the Rebel Riot?

Credits: KaungKaung

The Rebel Riot is a punk band and social active collective from Yangon that formed in 2017 after the onset of the Saffron Revolution. During this time across Myanmar tens of thousands monks and civilians were protesting against the oppression and corruption of the military system. Forged in tumult and unrest, The Rebel Riot’s message has always been one of rebellion, compassion and, above all, solidarity. The guys use music as a way to speak about freedom, human rights and pointing out fails of the current political system.

The Rebel Riot were the ones who began movement Food Not Bombs across Myanmar in order to feed the homeless. One of their casual activity was spending time with poor street children whom no one cares about. Later the guys formed an educational program Books Not Bombs to bring basic supplies, money donation and to play music for school children. With the initiation of the Rebel Riot community was opened free medical clinic in Rakhine State in the midst of the heavy political and COVID crisis (May, 2021). This clinic was created as a part of Food Not Bombs movement and was aimed to give people, especially those who are suffering from poverty, an access to medical care. The list of social activist of the Rebel Riot could be expanded easily, as they got involved in many volunteer organisations across Myanmar and don’t stop helping people.

So, as was said at the beginning, the Rebel Riot is more than a punk band, it’s a powerful crew that make changes for the society and give people hope for the better world. The current military dictatorship in Myanmar forced the Rebel Riot to take a break from making music. Some members are now in exile in Thailand and the rest are heavily involved in the underground resistance against the government.

How I can support the Rebel Riot community?

The Rebel Riot work to expose the harsh living conditions and human rights violations of people in Myanmar. Part of the community make an active resistance against military dictatorship and help people (Food Not Bombs, free medical services etc.).

In 2023, Tanztee Soundsysteme from Hamburg produced a few hundreds copies of vinyl records of the album “One Day” by the Rebel Riot on their own expense in order to raise money from sales and support the members of the Rebel Riot financially. Wanting to help the Rebel Riot community, Abbruch records undertook to helpdistribute this powerful punk record with charitable and solidarity intent.

Each of you, who want to support the Rebel Riot and the people resistance force in Myanmar, can do it by purchasing a vinyl (black or marble red limited edition) and donate as much as you want.

Another way to support the civil resistance against military coup in Myanmar is to get  a solidarity CD punk compilation “Myanmar, don’t give up the fight” released on Abbruch records in September 2021. The bands featured on it are: Absolut Lächerlich, [sic!], Abbruch, Attitude Chaos, Sabot Noir, Rotten Future. We have already raised several hundreds euro to support the movement „Food not Bombs“ in Myanmar and have been collecting more money from the sell of the CDs in free price.

No matter how trite it may sound, every cent is meaningful. It grows into new opportunities and outcomes for people in Myanmar, who fight for peaceful life.

Yes, we ship all over the world!

The Rebel Riot - One Day (2021)

The recording of 'One Day' was made under the radar of the authorities, and although it was rejected by many printers in Myanmar due to its politically charged look and lyrics, it was the result of the support of many friends around the country and across the border. The fourth album 'One Day' by the Rebel Riot was released in August 2021 in the conditions of martial law.

The sound of this 12-track album by the Rebel Riot presents a collision of hardcore punk and metal combined with rough, angry vocals. The album "One Day" touches upon painful topics that are relevant outside of Myanmar as well. Among them are war, exploitative capitalism, poverty, corrupt cops, religious hypocrisy, sexism, environmental destruction. 

A title track 'One Day' was produced before the military coup, but fitted with it's release perfectly as an image of people's uprising and for what they are fighting for.  One Day is a dreamy future without any tyranny, discrimination, oppression, military... when the wars end and a new dawn comes.
