PSPD invites people to show support for Myanmar, democracy

"Everything will be okay.”
The phrase on the T-shirt of 19-year-old Kyal Sin, who was killed by a shot to the head on the streets of Mandalay as she joined anti-coup protests in Myanmar rings in our heart.
The situation is getting worse after the military coup in Myanmar. At least 50 people have been reported to have died so far from the indiscriminate firing and suppression of peaceful protesters by the military and police. Nevertheless, Myanmar citizens continue to take to the streets to denounce the coup(or military regime) and send messages to the international community to join them.
Even though we are far away from them, we support Myanmar's civil disobedience movement, in opposition to the coup d’etat, which is on the streets to protect democracy. More than 500 citizens have joined the solidarity selfie campaign https://bit.ly/savemyanmar_kr proposed by Korean civil society organizations. We could feel the fluttering hearts of Myanmar citizens somehow.
Please spread the solidarity message of Korean citizens who are supporting Myanmar's democracy.
Please share the picture above on your SNS or the website of your organization, and make sure to tell them that Korean citizens are supporting you if you have Myanmar citizens connected. If you use the #SaveMyanmar hashtag, you can search it on social media and more people can see the news.
We stand with Myanmar citizens until the end of their persistent resistance to democracy and their legitimate struggle. We'll keep you updated! Thank you very much.
