The nauseating spectacle of Myanmar's fascist military using a holiday commemorating the country's wartime antifascist resistance to murder citizens and bomb Kawthoolei underscores the global importance of the #CivilDisobedienceMovement. THREAD on authoritarian impunity 1/21
First a caveat. This is not to explain the #SpringRevolutionMyanmar, and certainly not to play the expert with solutions. It is instead to draw the attention of progressive activists to #WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar because the connections to causes across the world are clear. 2/21
Some progressive voices in the UK are making these links, such as @labourlewis, but more solidarity from the left is needed. 3/21

While I strongly support #R2PforMyanmar ASAP, I believe there's much vital work that the #CivilDisobedienceMovement could be doing now that it isn't doing, namely, waging a fierce & effective propaganda campaign to accelerate defections from #MyanmarPolice & #Tatmadaw 1/n
The ideas I'll be presenting don't originate w/ me, an American w/o #Burma-related expertise, but are derived from the work & imagination of Burmese like @Rangoon_Film & @JusticeMyanmar along w/ a seminal interview done by @mrattkthu w/ a #Tatmadaw defector, Nyi Thura. 2/n
This interview hasn't gotten nearly the attn it deserves. With the help of @PhyoBurmaMade, who kindly translated the entire interview for a rando American (😄thank you!🙏), I'll begin by identifying what strike me as valuable points from that @mrattkthu interview 3/n

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement
2. All of my research in #Myanmar has been with/about ethnic #minorities. My interlocutors are #Muslims and #Hindus locally referred to as “Burmese #Indians”. All of my research assistants happen to be #Kachin #Christians. I have #Chin friends, too

In upmarket Yankin Tsp in #Yangon #Myanmar sits Golden City complex. Behind veneer of gaudy gold-patterned buildings, there is a bloody fact: it channels $millions to the Army Quartermaster General's office, which buys weapons used to commit #WarCrimes & #CrimesAgainstHumanity 👇🏽
The buildings in Golden City complex are home to powerful Chinese multinational corporations, incl. CITIC, China Railway Construction Corp, Bank of China, China State Construction Engineering & China International Telecommunication Construction Corporation. 1/
The building hosts a giant “Huawei” sign, celebrating the Golden City’s biggest Chinese tenant. The development boasts 221 luxury apartments, of which 147 are leased to @Huawei 2/

THREAD - Junta takes control of Village Tract and Ward Administration

Local admins are arguably the most important units of gov for most #Myanmar people

They deal with >90% of justice cases and are the main conduit for almost all interaction with gov

#WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
This is especially the case in rural areas, where taxation, land registration, welfare payments and any number of other functions run through the Village Tract Administrator.

In the past week, the #MyanmarMilitary has gone back 10 years, reversing decentralisation reforms
[AFAIK]

Now, Township Administrators (330 nationwide) are all uniformed military commanders

They names Ward and Village Tract Administrators, who are invariably men and stooges of the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party.

Even including nationalist monks

1. This History Thread is a brief history of labor organizing in Burma (Myanmar.) This relates to the crucial forefront role that organized labor is taking in resistance to the Feb. 2021 military coup. #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
2. For power-amassing kingdoms in lands that would eventually become Burma, controlling agricultural production & other types of work was a key function of the nation state. Conquered & other captive people were often used for skilled work or manual labor.
3. British colonized Burma late 19th C, commenced extractive industry & agricultural production for export. Land dispossession, taxation, economic crises caused sporadic rebellion by farmers, most notably brutally suppressed 1930 Saya San peasant uprising. irrawaddy.com/specials/on-th…

Is #Myanmar military using @Telenor_mm to spy on activists? In a @bistandsaktuelt investigation, Telenor refused to answer questions on whether the military has access to user data. See the story in Norwegian 👉 ow.ly/NOLQ50DzRqn 1/ #CivilDisobedienceMovement #keepiton #CDN
.@TelenorGroup refused to answer questions on whether the company will even disclose if they receive a directive or a request from #Myanmar authorities for access to user data. This puts #CivilDisobedienceMovement activists + journalists at risk, whose lives are on the line 2/

What's Happened In #Rakhine since the #MyanmarCoup?
[Thread 1/7]

From our sources @RestlessBeings we understand that a major PR drive by the military has taken place in #Rakhine state today, particularly targeted at the #Rohingya population

What's Happened In #Rakhine since the #MyanmarCoup?
[Thread 2/7]

In #Sittwe #Akyab in the #IDP camp of #AungMinglar the Regional Military Commander (believed to be Mying Aung Lwin) visited #Rohingya community leaders for about 45 minutes.

#WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
[Thread 3/7]
He went on to explain the 3 main reasons why the #Tatmadaw has taken control:
1. 1 million voters in #Rakhine left off voter lists
2. #NLD violated #Covid19 rules
3. #NLD didn't respond to #military demands of voter lists

#Birmanie Ce qu'il faut savoir sur le coup d'Etat (thread) ⬇️
C'est toute la stratégie d'engagement européenne et américaine 🇪🇺🇺🇸 qui vole en éclats - très peu de sanctions malgré le massacre des Rohingyas.

C'est aussi le pari d'Aung San Suu Kyi et ses renoncements qui s'écroule.
Min Aung Hlaing, le chef de l'armée birmane, avait annoncé qu'il respecterait les résultats des élections.

2 mois plus tard, coup d'Etat. La valeur de la parole de l'armée... Image
