The junta government of Myanmar is carrying out extreme repression in the ongoing movement against the military rule. The group committee for representing deposed civilian government MPs, Paidungsu Hlutau (CRPH), called the indiscriminate firing on protesters in the streets an “extrajudicial killing”. Two and a quarter lakh evidences of such torture and murder of the junta have been collected. They want to use this evidence in a legal battle against the army.
Protests, shootings, torture and killings are now commonplace in Myanmar. The CRPH said on Wednesday it had collected 160,000 pieces of evidence of torture against the junta in this situation. At the time, he discussed the possibility of using the information gathered in a legal battle against the junta.
In a statement, the CRPH said the information gathered provided clear evidence of human rights abuses against the occupying forces. The army has killed more than 450 people without trial. At least 10 people died in torture while in custody. Army and police opened fire to quell peaceful protests. At least 571 people have been killed in junta shootings in Myanmar during two months of protests, according to the rights group Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP). The list of dead includes about 50 children. More than 3,500 people, including journalists, have been detained. Of them, 2,750 are still detained. Even today, at least 13 people have been killed in junta shootings in the country. Protests are going on in the streets of Myanmar every day. However, in the name of protest, Myanmar is being pushed to the brink of destruction, warlord Min Aung Hlaing has warned. He said in a statement yesterday that protests were taking place in neighboring countries, but that they were not destroying business. Roads are being closed in Myanmar in the name of protests. Hospitals, offices, factories, educational institutions are closed. If this continues, the country will be destroyed.
Myanmar’s army has fired on protesters. At least seven people were killed. Many injured. The incident took place on Wednesday. The news agency Reuters reported this information. Despite bloody repression, Myanmar’s pro-democracy forces have continued to protest against the military rule. The country’s junta has shut down the internet as well as using force as a way to quell protests. An army coup took place in Myanmar on February 1. More than 560 people have been killed so far in anti-coup protests in the country. Among the dead were children. About three and a half thousand people have been arrested. The rights group reported the information to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAP).
Myanmar’s security forces opened fire on protesters in the northwestern city of Kale today. Five people were reported killed there.
A resident of Kale said protesters were demanding the reinstatement of Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian government. These shots caused casualties.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in the town of Bago, near Yangon. Two protesters were killed.
Protesters set fire to a Chinese-owned factory in the commercial capital, Yangon. They also burned the Chinese flag.
No casualties were reported in the blaze at the garment factory. Apart from this, the details of the damage were not known.
China is backing Myanmar’s military junta. That is why the Myanmar protesters are angry with China. Last month, protesters set fire to 32 factories with Chinese investment in Yangon.
Pro-democracy protests, strikes and non-cooperation are being carried out across Myanmar. The country’s military says the movement is destroying Myanmar.
There was a bloodless coup in Myanmar on February 1. The country’s army seized power through a coup. Top leaders of his party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), including Aung San Suu Kyi, were arrested. The army declared a state of emergency in Myanmar for a year. Protests have been raging in Myanmar since the military coup.
There has been a storm of condemnation in the international arena against the military coup and atrocities in Myanmar. The international community is increasing pressure on Myanmar’s junta in various ways, including sanctions.
