Myanmar / Burma
Our friends in Myanmar need us to listen and share the stories coming out of the country right now.
When Myanmar suffered before, those that knew and loved the country were few outside of the country. Now thanks to a decade of tourism there are millions who have friends on the front line of the protests. If social media has any purpose it is to project the voices of the people on the front line loud and clear.
21.02.21 - This evening there is a serious sense of unease as the Generals have imposed an all day curfew and the internet is down for the next 10 hours or so. It looks as though the military are gearing up for a crackdown in Yangon. A clip shows military vehicles moving into the city. Roads being blocked, including the whole road between American and Korean embassies in Yangon. This area has been one of the most crowded places with protestors in previous days. Reports of military vehicles having been painted white and marked as police vehicles.
If any of you would like to connect with powerful stories from Myanmar and to help to project them loudly, please see the attached and contact us.
