Extensive protests against the military junta continue in Myanmar / Article / LSM.lv

Extensive protests against the military junta continue in Myanmar. To prevent the gathering, security forces targeted protesters particularly aggressively on Saturday, February 27, using tear gas, water jets and ammunition.

Since the takeover of the military on 1 February, there have been mass protests in Myanmar every day, involving thousands of people, including students, doctors, teachers, monks and many others. Three people have been killed in the demonstrations, but local media today report that another girl has been shot by police. Today, many are also arrested, including journalists.

In order to prevent the security forces from taking revenge on the protesters, demonstrators have built barricades in several cities.

When military forces took power, Prime Minister Auna Su Chi and other senior members of the ruling National League for Democracy were arrested. And the location of the head of government has not been known since yesterday.

Many countries have condemned what is happening in Myanmar. The United States and Britain have extended sanctions against the junta. However, most of Myanmar’s neighbors argue that the international community should not interfere in Myanmar’s domestic politics.
