The United Nations has condemned the use of lethal force against peaceful protesters in Myanmar. It said at least eighteen demonstrators had been shot dead in the bloodiest day of clashes since military leaders seized power four weeks ago.
Elections in November saw the ruling party, the National League for Democracy led by Aung San Suu Kyi, win a comfortable victory. That threatened the military's hold on power.
On 1st February, generals seized power in a military coup. There have been huge protests leading to a violent crackdown by the security forces.

  • MYANMAR: THE WORLD MUST KNOW The Tatmadaw (Myanmar's military) has ruled since the 1960s when Gen. U Ne Win took power by coup. Its junta was dissolved in 2011 but the Tatmadaw secured for themselves1/4 of the seats in parliament and by owning multibillion worth businesses, corporations and holdings for international trade. They range from cigarettes, beers, tourism, telecoms, real estate, banking. They receive at least $450M/yr from foreign oil companies operating in the country. The coup leader Min Aung Hlaing's 2 adult children own 6 companies - (1) A&M Mahar Co. Ltd (2) Sky One Construction Co. (3) The Yangon Restaurant (4) The Yangon Gallery (5) Everlift Co. Ltd and (6) 7th Sense Co. Ltd. The US sanctioned these and "froze" the Tatmadaw account of $1B (which earns $4M a year from interest) that they attempted to move days after launching the coup due to the uprising. Hlaing was supposed to retire in 2016 but he extended his term for 5 more years. Because he knows the ruling pro-democracy party, NLD, has very strong support from the people, it is impossible for him to win the election. The NLD consistenly won by massive landslide of 82-86% . Hlaing needed to launch a coup to stay in power. Reviving the old authoritarian system will guarantee him power for as long as he wishes. And to keep power, he is now on a full campaign to destroy the NLD to eliminate opposition by charging Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint with election fraud and other unfounded and absurd charges. He timed the coup just days before the newly elected leaders were to be sworn in. Hlaing's junta unlawfully nullified the election results and appointed Myint Swe as his puppet acting president. The trials of the said duly elected leaders are done behind closed doors, hidden and kept from the public. Aung San Suu Kyi's lawyer is not allowed to see her in person. Myanmar only enjoyed their semi-democracy for only 10 years from 2011, a nascent one but it allowed the impoverished country to enjoy some freedom, improvement in standard of living, and a more liberal economy, though development is yet to reach the rural parts of the country. The Tatmadaw, who violently expelled the Rohingya also committed atrocities against the different Burmese ethnic groups for decades. Aung San Suu Kyi was placed in a very difficult situation of protecting their fragile democracy which they worked very hard to achieve at great risk since the 1980s. Because of what is going on now and why, it shows Hlaing has been on a gradual campaign to destroy the democratic government. He led the expulsion of the Rohingya, committing brutal and grave atrocities against them knowing it will be Aung San Suu Kyi who will take the fall for it and not him. Now, Hlaing and his henchmen (combined Tatmadaw and police force) are after other pro-democracy figures and supporters to eliminate resistance and any pursuit for democracy. One of Aung San Suu Kyi's advisor, Ko Ni, who was a brilliant lawyer, writer and constitution expert, was assassinated in 2017 for working on constitutional change. Last week, an NLD party official, was taken from his home in the wee hours, was beaten and laid dead at a military hospital by morning. Recently, duly elected officials and designated envoys that support the 22222 Spring Revolution of 2021 were slapped with high treason, which has a penalty of death. Other key pro-democracy and NLD figures are being targeted and hunted as well. The 2008 Constitution was formulated by the Tatmadaw. This is not the first uprising in Myanmar against the Tatmadaw. At least 10,000 were killed in the 8888 Revolution of 1988, Saffron Revolution of 2007 led by the Buddhist monks, and the current 22222 Spring Revolution. Many of their earlier freedom fighters were killed, tortured, jailed for years as political prisoners. Hlaing has ordered his henchmen to carry out crackdowns on peaceful protests with increasing violence, including the deployment of snipers, burning, looting, violent night raids and arrests. They are now undertaking community to community operations to quash dissent. As of March 18, at least 220 have been killed and more than 2,800 arrested and detained. In February, Hlaing ordered the release of 23,000 convicts to free up spaces for detaining those who will be arrested. As Myanmar has a young population, many of the protesters who were killed were young adults and teenagers. Aung San Suu Kyi and Win Myint remain under house arrest. It can be remembered that she was first placed under a long house arrest from 1989 to 2010. Aung San Suu Kyi already had a family and a life in London but returned to Burma to take care of her ailing mother. She witnessed the 8888 Revolution violence against the protesters where thousands died. Her pro-democracy activism and political life began since. A parallel government has been set up by CRPH working together with colleagues, duly elected leaders and envoys to counter the Tatmadaw junta of Hlaing which has no legitimacy to power. The CRPH designated an Acting President to lead the country back to democracy and stability. The country saw for the first time tremendous courage, unity and resolve of the people to restore democracy and bring down the illegitimate, repressive, authoritarian rule of Hlaing and his henchmen. Stand with us for justice and freedom for Myanmar!

  • Your actions should be revised because past observations show that nothing has been done better, you just cut off aid, you all have to think that this is not a Cold War. This is a terrible coup, it is against the law, it is used by the constitution, it is international law. And if all of you are still in the meeting and there is no clear action, the people of Burma are dying day by day and the military is dying. Help restore democracy. At this time, you should take hot measures to prove that you are also an organization that suppresses the country, under the rule that you must first think about the negative results, such as Burma.
