With the generals’ abrupt seizure of power, the people of Myanmar are again in the military’s cross hairs — and increasingly shut off from the world. Although the putsch, led by Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, the army chief, was itself bloodless, the military has resorted to familiar tactics in the days since: dozens of arrests, beatings by mysterious thugs, telecommunications outages and, this time, social media bans targeting Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. An entire class of people — poets, painters, reporters and rap artists among them — has gone into hiding.

yesterday


pics coming out even with very spotty internet


Right in the middle of the #Myanmar #Yangon city now infront of city hall downtown, a popular protest gathering spot. Also where nation's Independence Monument is. Crowds protesting against the #militarycoup have occupied the streets and blocked traffic

My question is what will the Junta do? Its not in their makeup to let domestic or international threats sway them

Yep - they are 'touchy' about radio transmitters. I had to jump through hoops to import my ham radio equipment around 2017, took me 6 years of lobbying for them to finally issue me with an import licence....

from this statement, looks like things might get nasty

Image

#Myanmar state TV #MRTV posted a statement, announced it on news that laws have been broken in nation. That without discipline, democracy can be destroyed. #Military government will take action against all who violate law & threaten citizens' security #whatishappeninginmyanmar

Myanmar state TV is now signaling potential crackdown on anti-coup protests that are sweeping the country: It said legal action should be taken against acts that harms the stability of the state, public safety and rule of law.

CNA news Singapore that the Tatmadaw is in violation of intl law & must respect the rights of people to protest their unlawful coup. The generals must stand down and know that the world is watching: "We are on the side of the protesters."
