#Myanmar #Naypyidaw #Arrests

The military in Myanmar arrested other members of the disempowered government of Aung San Suu Kyi late on Wednesday evening. At least six high-ranking politicians, including a close advisor to the 75-year-old, have been arrested,
reported the newspaper "The Irrawaddy". Meanwhile, the demonstrations continued unabated. In the northern city of Mandalay, colorfully dressed artists took to the streets to call for the restoration of the civilian government.
Bank employees and Deutsche Bahn employees also took part in the demos. At first it was peaceful - on Tuesday, however, blood flowed: the police had tried to disperse demonstrators with water cannons and rubber balls.

#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

#Myanmar 🇲🇲 BREAKING: #AungSanSuuKyi has been arrested alongside the country's President according to her party the #NLD.

It seems that the military is commiting a coup.
Unlike before it will be very hard for #AungSanSuuKyi and the #NLD to profile themselves as champions of democracy in #Myanmar 🇲🇲.

In the short period that they were in a shared position of power they allowed the #Rohingya genocide to take place and defended the perpetrators.
That being said the actions of the #Tatmadaw are clearly a coup and the international community should retaliate.

The people of #Myanmar 🇲🇲 deserve better than to go back to the dark days of military totalitarianism.
