Guerrilla History

Apr 23, 2021

In this episode of Guerrilla History, we bring on journalist Carlos Sardiña Galache to discuss the history of Burma/Myanmar and the tragedy of the Rohingya people.  Given the recent coup and subsequent violence perpetuated against protestors, we feel that this is a vitally important interview to orient the events within the overall flow of Burmese History.

Carlos Sardiña Galache is the author of The Burmese Labyrinth: A History of the Rohingya Tragedy (Verso Books,  He has also published articles in a variety of outlets focusing on Myanmar, including New Left Review, Jacobin, Time Magazine, the Intercept, and the Asia Times.  All of his articles can be found on his website (  You can follow him on twitter @CSGalache.

Henry has also conducted two interviews with Carlos on the David Feldman Show, focusing on the recent events in Myanmar.  You can find those interviews (which should make good supplementary material) here:
