Instead of being the subordinates of the notorious Min Aung Hlaing, the People’s Embrace team encouraged junta soldiers to surrender and be treated right.
“Will you spend the rest of your life sacrificing for evil, or will you surrender under a good association, with dignity, who will treat you right?”, announced the People’s Embrace.
The People’s Embrace is an independent team made up of people who provide help for junta soldiers and police who are wanting to join the CDM but are facing difficulties. The team runs the joint tasks with the Ministry of Defense of the National Unity Government of Myanmar. They provide safety, living, food, health, and education for CDM soldiers and police.
