Despite the Myanmar junta crackdown, "a nationwide protest movement has sustained itself for half a year. Each day, across the country, people gather for demonstrations, often lasting just a minute or two, before dispersing to stay ahead of the soldiers." https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/01/world/asia/myanmar-state-emergency.html?referringSource=articleShare …pic.twitter.com/d5Ktty0Xe6
By all appearances it took a vote of one (himself) for the Myanmar junta leader to declare himself prime minister. The millions of votes of the Myanmar people, case in November for the National League for Democracy, were ignored. https://www.reuters.com/article/myanmar-politics-int/myanmar-army-ruler-takes-prime-minister-role-again-pledges-elections-idUSKBN2F20W6 …pic.twitter.com/8lAnZwS6ef
Dear friends of Burma/Myanmar, We can't let this revolution go in vain. The young generation is looking up to a brighter future that guarantees freedom and justice. Violences and violations r nothing new for us. But revolution is what gives us hope. And you must support it. pic.twitter.com/wspKmMMllP
#Myanmar #military took over nation in #coup exactly 6 months today:
1) @aapp_burma says at least 940 are known to have been killed, over 5,000 in detention
2) #Covid19 killed over 9,300, some 300,000 infected
3) Military annulled 2020 poll results
Critics of the regime say the move is both a sign of its weakness and evidence of its determination to hold onto power.

“Given that Min Aung Hlaing has already publicly said that he hopes to learn from the Thai experience … there’s every reason to consider these next elections will be highly stacked in favor of the military”
