    CNN ^ | June 10, 2021 | Helen Regan and Sophie Jeong,
    The new charge follows an investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission into several accusations leveled at Suu Kyi. It found her "guilty of committing corruption using her rank," the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar said. She was charged under the Anti-Corruption Law section 55, and if found guilty could face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years. Suu Kyi was overthrown from her position of state counselor and de facto leader of the country when the military seized power in a February 1 coup. She has been held in detention since then and charged with a series of crimes her...
  • With homemade rifles, Myanmar self-defence groups take fight to junta

    Yangon (AFP) - At makeshift factories hidden in Myanmar's jungle, locals who have formed self-defence groups make rifles to take the fight to the military junta, but their homemade weapons don't always hit the mark. Myanmar has been in chaos and its economy paralysed since the generals ousted Aung San Suu Kyi's government in February, accusing it of fraud during 2020 elections. Several communities across Myanmar -- especially in townships that have seen a high death toll at the hands of police -- have formed local "defence forces". At one workshop in Kayah state near the Thai border, an amateur...
  • Did Former Trump Advisor Michael Flynn Really Call For a 'Myanmar-Like' Coup in America?

    There are many ways the media can misinterpret what you say. They can deliberately misinterpret you. They can accidentally misinterpret you. And then there’s Michael Flynn. Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor was speaking at the “For God & Country Patriot Roundup” — a three-day conference heavy on the conspiracy theories and light on other stuff like reason and sanity. Flynn was asked a simple question by a man who described himself as “a simple Marine” and immediately sent media tongues wagging from sea to sea. The Marine asked why “what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here.” “No reason. I...

    Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said there is "no reason" a coup could not happen in the United States.During a right-wing conference in Dallas called the "For God & Country Patriot Roundup" over the weekend, the former White House national security adviser was asked by someone in the audience, who identified as a " simple Marine": "Why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?"After cheers erupted in the crowd, Flynn replied, "No reason. I mean, it should happen here."The military seized control of Myanmar in February, ousting the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi and effectively putting commander in...

    In the city of Naypyitaw on Saturday, Myanmar’s military junta celebrated Armed Forces Day, a holiday marking the beginning of Myanmar’s revolt against Japanese occupation during World War II. The weekend celebration came with a parade, a speech by coup leader Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, and a lavish dinner party. Meanwhile, across the country, soldiers and police shot largely defenseless anti-coup protesters and bystanders—including children—killing 100 people in the country’s deadliest day since the military’s Feb. 1 takeover. The day also marked a major escalation of violence in another conflict in Myanmar: the military’s ongoing fighting with local ethnic groups....

  • Report of Christian workers operating in the Myanmar.

    [They’ve emphasized the sensitivity of their reports so I’ve redacted this pretty significantly. But I think it’s important for people to understand what is going on. I’m getting a steady flow of reports like these from different locations describing relief work among defecting police/soldiers/government officials, refugees on the run, fighting in many areas, torture and human rights abuses by the military junta, involvement by the Chinese government and so on. Note the testimony below describing Chinese/military exploitation of tribal areas. This is done without concern or recompense to the local people, who are often enslaved or have their homes destroyed...

    Russia and China are frustrating the international response to the Myanmar crisis, a top European Union diplomat said Sunday, as the death toll from a military crackdown climbed past 700. Myanmar has been in turmoil since the military removed civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi from power on February 1. International efforts to stem the violence have so far failed to yield results, with EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell saying Sunday it was "no surprise" that Russia and China were blocking efforts at the UN Security Council to impose an arms embargo.
  • Food for Myanmar Regime Soldiers Taken Away After Karen Rebels Block Delivery

    The Irrawaddy ^ | April 7, 2021
    Food reportedly bought from Thailand and bound for Tatmadaw (Myanmar’s military) troops in Karen State was taken away on Tuesday at midnight, after ethnic armed organization the Karen National Union (KNU) blocked its delivery. Many in Myanmar believe that the food was sold by the Thai army to the Tatmadaw, prompting people to condemn the Thai military on social media after the food arrived on the banks of the Salween River on Saturday. Following fresh clashes with the Tatmadaw in Karen State’s Papun District, the KNU’s Brigade 5 blocked transportation routes to Papun, preventing the military regime from delivering food...

    Thousands flee Myanmar airstrikes, complicating crisis ^ | March 29, 2021 | TASSANEE VEJPONGSA
    MAE SAKOEP, Thailand (AP) — Thai soldiers began sending back some of the thousands of people who have fled a series of airstrikes by the military in neighboring Myanmar, people familiar with the matter said Monday. But Thai officials denied that as the insecurity on the border added a new dimension to an already volatile crisis set off by a coup in Myanmar. The weekend strikes, which sent ethnic Karen people seeking safety in Thailand, represented another escalation in the violent crackdown by Myanmar’s junta on protests of its Feb. 1 takeover. On Saturday, ( more than 100 people were...
  • The Real Coup Happening Right Now That No One Is Talking About – Hundreds Dead

    VIDEO: Hundreds of people have been killed and I’ve not seen any American press on the coup that is currently taking place. The country of Myanmar (Burma) has recently been taken over by the military-backed opposition party. Notice that all of these protesters are unarmed citizens, yet they are being slaughtered. And why? Because they are against the coup. So what is happening and why is it happening? Myanmar has been the center of angst for a long time now. The Myanmar military seized control of the country and has declared a year long state of emergency. This seizure...

  • Myanmar military leader says army aims to 'safeguard democracy' as security forces kill dozens of protesters

    Saturday has turned into the deadliest day since demonstrations against the Feb. 1 military coup began more than a month ago, and more than 400 people have been killed overall. A 13-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy were reportedly among at least 13 people killed in Myanmar's second most populous city, Mandalay, while another 13-year-old was reportedly killed in another village. Despite the violence, there was once again no sign of the movement abating. Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said "the army seeks to join hands with the entire nation to safeguard democracy," but "violent acts that affect stability and...

    BANGKOK -- Myanmar's military has extended martial law to broader sections of Yangon after the deaths of dozens of protesters in the city's garment production hub, where several Chinese factories have suffered arson attacks. The military announced Monday that it is expanding martial law to six districts in the country's most populous city, meaning that the armed forces and not the police will maintain public order in the designated areas. This comes after some of the worst bloodshed since the Feb. 1 coup occurred over the weekend. Signs point to continued violence ahead, with an opposition group telling citizens they...
