Myanmar Situation Update (February 2021)
The 2021 Myanmar military coup began on 1 February 2021 when the Myanmar military, Tatmadaw detained numerous government officials, including State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, and Union Election Commission (UEC) Chair U Hla Thein, as well as pro-democracy activists and politicians from the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) and other parties. Since then, civil resistance efforts in opposition to the coup has been growing across the country, and security forces have been violently cracking down on the anti-coup protests.
In order to keep the international community informed about the post-coup development in Myanmar, ANFREL will closely monitor the situation and prepare weekly briefs on Myanmar for public dissemination. You may find our weekly briefs below:
