Widespread protests in Myanmar’s Yangon after NLD condemns coup, calls for leaders’ release.

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -


The UN Security Council has failed to agree on a joint statement condemning Monday’s coup in Myanmar.
Aung San Suu Kyi was among dozens of political figures picked up by the army, and reportedly remains under house arrest.
The National League for Democracy’s (NLD) party has called for Aung San Suu yi immediate release and for the army to acknowledge the November 2020 election results.
In Myanmar’s largest city Yangon, residents banged pots and pans as part of widespread protests.

Al Jazeera’s Ali Fowle reports from Yangon, Myanmar.

    Our dreams are gone….
    Min Aung Hlaing, chef military general is covering himself from icj and icc sues. As far as I’m concerned, they selected soldiers with low IQ not to against them. He throwed every single citizens’ future to cover himself. I feel quite sad for our ” The Lady” and our president ” U Win Myint”.

      The generals have armed soldiers protecting their families. Worry about the families of common people.

      @krishna murthy It’s the 21st century, brother. Low-cost drones with facial recognition could do the trick. They better always live in fear, behind soldiers. They can’t kill us all; we just need to get a few of them.

    • Avatar Trong Duc says:

      @Andrew S I find it highly unethical, targeting the innocence is never okay

    • Avatar Andrew S says:

      ​@Trong Duc Did you say that when the military killed thousands of innocent Burmese people during the 1988 protests, after the last coup? It’s weak people like you who allow the military to control us.

      Military “strongmen” respond to credible threats, not nice-talk. They themselves can get hurt. Who knows what will happen? At the very least, they must live in fear.

    They should be happy, democracy is the biggest oppression of them all. Look at what it has done to the west. West would have been 100 times richer and freer without democracy. Now it is a mess than will continue going down hill. Not saying military regim is good, best would be if everyone was their own king. But democracy is worse.

    Well, the ruling party, NLD, had no real opposition politically, so this was bound to happen.

  14. Avatar RyokoJuu Myanmar says:

    It’s civil disobedience. We will not riot on the road as the same like our military terrorist. But surely, all the citizens are fighting back to them . We strongly oppose the military coup. The military is not protectors for Myanmar Citizens. They are just terrorist with weapons who tried to get authority without agreement of citizens. We voted for elected president and state counselor for democracy. We will hold our hope and trust till we die .

    • Avatar BenJong Walling says:

      You know it right?

    • Avatar Clorox Bleach says:

      Basically the from constitution (written before Suu Kyi) guarantees that the military has a place in government (this means the military isnt controlled by the civilians and that’s how we have the Rohingya genocide) and the military must’ve been paranoid that eventually democratically elected Suu Kyi would phase the military out of the government so they did a coup.

    • Avatar Erza Scarlet says:

      @Clorox Bleach thankyou

  17. Avatar Damar Warsani says:

    The irony is these military soldiers have families,how are they treated by non military families??how can they be trusted at all,Chins has condemned the UN for speaking out about the coup and takeover over the country by the military,now you see military and its leadership will prosper from China’s interest as before,the fat cat generals have it for themselves.

    so basically she ignored the genocide of Rohingyas so that she could save herself or other people from military dictatorship? so tell me how thats working ? did she still have a democracy for which she not only ignored the genocide but support genocide .if leaders have selective empathy and undifference for one group of thier own people then my friend,she is not a leaders .she is just a politicians wants to have power .thats it.
    i am not able to understand her hypocritics behavour .she could had exposed the militray at ICJ as she had chance and could got the UNSC intervention on grounds of gencide .UNSC has a power to intervenve the country to stop genocide from dictators ..nelson mandela didnt support blacks for violence on whites or read script out of fear .he was also jailed for most of his life time . not house arrest like her he was jailed for 30 years in prison.
    thats not how leaders behave thats politicians works to be on winnig side as log as you get benefit

    It’s like people have forgotten about the Rohingya crisis that is still an issue in Myanmar.
    The switch of power to the military could very well mean a return to aggressive actions taken against impoverished and mostly unprotected people still residing within the nations borders.
    Add to this the effects of economic hardship and the ongoing problems of the pandemic and it could be a humanitarian disaster waiting to explode (the result could see intervention of other nations and a escalation of conflict within the region, that if left unchecked could eventually pull the globe into open warfare)

    ■ Double Standard of U.S.? ■
    Myanmar’s military has seized power after detaining Aung San Suu Kyi and other democratically elected leaders. What the U.S. Government did to this military action after election? We looked back, the demonstrator of U.S. Capitol Hill in January 6 U.S. called a “riot” “mob” “violence” “crimes”, but when U.S. handling Hongkong demonstrator is another thing, U.S. House passes 《Hong kong human rights and democracy Act》in Oct. 15, 2019, U.S. imposing sanctions on Hong Kong Chief Executive, Police Chief are among 11 officials freeze any American asset, and calling the decision [ Despicable and Barbarous ] in Aug. 7, 2020 !
    Now facing Myanmar Military detained Aung San Suu Kyi and seized power, what U.S. Government will do? what U.S. Congress responds? This event is more serious than a Demonstration but military intervention, did U.S. House will passes 《Myanmar human rights and democracy Act》? did U.S. imposing sanctions on Myanmar Military Chief Executive, Army Chief are among dozens officials?
    ● If U.S. do nothing about Myanmar Military seized power with similar measures, the all G20 countries will receive a clear message that U.S. Government just Selective Against Measures to China related issues with 《Double Standard 》!
