I think the only foreign intervention you would see is from China...in support of the military.

The West is too busy bickering among ourselves. Worse than that though. I think too many of us would impose our will on others rather than respect the democratic institutions you are fighting for and we take for granted.

Good luck to you A_Thein.

This thread really warmed my heart. The concern you show to a virtual stranger and the empathy to their struggle is frankly bringing me to tears. Thank you for showing me the good side of humanity during this difficult time.

I wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2022.

As for Burma, our civil war is heating up. There are daily massacres from the army (burning people alive, torturing them to death, air strikes on villages, arrests of doctors/nurses, arrests of family members of suspected rebels etc.) but now the entire country is either in active revolt (training in the jungles and conducting partisan operations in loosely organized cells) or doing their best to survive the chaos. There has been many bombings and assassinations against the junta and despite their propaganda machine (which worked in the past as many Burmese had no idea how brutal the army actually was) going full strength, no one is believing their BS.

Basically we as a country and as a society are at a crossroads. Some of us still wish (vainly) for foreign intervention but many of us are now fighting and dying for our right to self-determine.

Thanks again for the messages of support and general kindness. It is greatly appreciated.

Estimated date when there is no one left to torture?

IIRC the initial statement was that the military would hold the state for 1 year until 'fair elections could be held' or something like that (aka until we get the result we like). Considering the coup though it wouldn't surprise me that they just held on to it for as long as they can.

How is Myanmar's military funded.

I just found this post. Fucking hell, no comment from him after he told us about his taser and water barrel defense. I'm so afraid something happened to him. "Hopefully" it's just that his internet is shut down...

So tonight they are cutting off internet from 1am to 9am so that their thugs can set fires and attack people. This has been going on for the past few days. Some of these thugs are literal children they found, bribed then injected with drugs. There is video proof of this in the /myanmar /savemyanmar sub reddits. After the internet shutdown, the new telecom law goes into effect. They have banned the words "junta" and "regime" as well as swearing in Burmese at the military. They also will record all communications and data for 3 years and can use it to arrest people.

As of 45 minutes ago, in a different state they have used live rounds on full auto against unarmed protesters. They were not shooting into the air and many are expected to have died.

My neighbourhood is rumoured to be a target tonight, so I'm guarding the house all night with my taser, a barrel of water (for fires) and my cellphone camera (to record).

Take care of yourselves all, and defend your freedom/democracy wherever you are.

PS In a funny bit of news, the new coup leadership is called the SAC (State administration council). lol
So sorry to hear that the situation is getting worse.
Can you move? Didn’t you live in Australia before SEA?

They've started using live rounds today. There were protests in my city about 10 mins away from me. I heard a girl was killed, and several more were injured. No power cuts yet, but Internet is heavily censored.

Curfew is from 8pm - 4am. Violators will be arrested or shot apparently.

Appreciate your democracy guys, no matter how flawed because this alternative sucks.

Ill update when I can. If you are curious/concerned check reddit myanmar and savemyanmar. *graphic content warning*
Stay safe.
After watching the unthinkable happen here in the United States because half of the voting public chose an internet influencer for president, the world has seen just how fragile a Democracy can be.
The Constitution is nothing more than words on paper and only means something when there are people that back it up and believe in it.

I don't know what to tell you A_Thein except stay safe and thanks for the updates.

It is a helpless feeling watching a country dissolve into Might-is-Right.
