The Myanmar army crossed the entire border on the occasion of Armed Forces Day and played a holi of blood with protesters demanding democracy. Protesters were fired at several places across the country. So far, 114 people have died. It is reported that such a number of people died in a day. Some of these children are also involved. Saturday was the most bloodshed day after a military coup in the Southeast Asian country.
More than 400 people have lost their lives since last February
More than 400 people have lost their lives so far in the demonstrations that have been going on since February last in protest against the coup. In Myanmar, when the bullets were being fired on Saturday, the military ruler senior General Min Aung said that the army will protect the people during a parade held on the occasion of military day in the capital Nepeta.
Official television had cautioned on Friday that protesters could be shot. Regardless of the warning, a large number of protestors went off the streets of more than two dozen cities, including Yangon and Mandalay. According to the Myanmar Nau news portal, 24 people were killed in Yangon, the country’s largest city. In Mandalay, 29 people, including a five-year-old child, were killed.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sasa, spokesman for the anti-military regime group CRPH, said, “Today is a shame for the security forces. “They are killing us like birds,” said a protester living in the Thingyan city of central Myanmar. We will continue to fight in spite of that. We have to fight till the military regime is over. Two protestors have also died in the city.
The European Union (EU) delegation in Myanmar said that the 76 armed forces day of this country will be remembered as terror and humiliation day. Unarmed civilians including children are being murdered. The growing international pressure on the military rule is increasing international pressure on the army to be occupied by a coup in Myanmar. The US and the European Union have banned the country’s top military officers and several military-related companies. However, China did not openly oppose the coup in Myanmar. It is believed that he has close ties with the Myanmar army.
Detained Aung San Suu Kyi
The army took over the power of the National League for Democracy (NLD) government on February one. Since then, several top leaders, including ousted Supreme Leader Aung San Suu Kyi, are in custody. The army has accused Aung San of taking bribes and illegally importing communication equipment. The army had said that the elections held last November were rigged. That is why he has been occupied by power.
