Protesters Gunned Down in the Monywa City Protest Against Military Rule

Sadly, this reminds me of our end sars protests and the protesters that gave their lives to make a change. The energy young people put into voicing out and trying to make a change is remarkable, only that the Government sees it as a treat and prefers to gun them down rather than let them be heard.

This was the case of a young lady who had left her home to protest in the city of Monywa after the military seized power through a coup, and sadly she will never return home as she was gunned down during the course of the protest.
The military justified the takeover with claims of fraud in the 2020 election that returned Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) to power.

The protesters were met with brutal force through tear gas, rubber bullets and then real bullets. Quite a number of people have lost their lives to this protest and many more will if there is no intervention.

My questions/opinion for this are:

  1. Why not have a standard worldwide procedure for deescalating protests instead of killing protesters.

  2. What is your take on protests?

  3. What form of intervention should be expected before order is restored in Mandalay? The United Nation perhaps? Or is it possible that the people of Mandalay are now doomed to military rule?

  4. Out of curiosity, can a coup like this be possible in our Aso Rock? Who do you think is capable of leading such coup? One of the service chiefs?
