Demonstrations against military coup in Myanmar are steadily intensifying. China’s government is on the target of protesters. Frightened by the agitation, the military regime has deployed tanks to crush them. Patrolling the streets of armored vehicles has made the situation more tense. There have also been reports of firing in some areas. However, these could not be confirmed.
Meanwhile, the army has warned protesters protesting across the country that if they obstruct the action of the armed forces, they could face up to 20 years in prison.
A BBC report said that provocations for hatred or contempt against military leaders would also be imposed with long-term punishment and fines. Tom Andruz, UN Special Officer for Myanmar, said, “It seems that the army has declared war against the people of the country.”
Raids are being conducted in the middle of the night, people are being arrested, their rights are being taken away. The internet has also been shut down again. Army convoys are entering residential areas. People have been on the streets of Myanmar for 9 days demanding the release of the country’s supreme leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the restoration of a democratic government.
