Burma: mass- demonstrations against the regime

This is ugly. The regime killed 114 of their own people in a day!

Thousands of protesters took to the streets across Myanmar on Saturday, as the country’s ruling military celebrated the annual Armed Forces Day holiday with a parade in Yangon. Security forces killed dozens of protesters in what local media is saying was the deadliest day since the military coup that took place last month. An estimated 400 people have been killed since early February.

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — As Myanmar’s military celebrated the annual Armed Forces Day holiday with a parade Saturday in the country’s capital, soldiers and police elsewhere killed scores of people while suppressing protests in the deadliest bloodletting since last month’s coup.

The online news site Myanmar Now reported late Saturday that the death toll had reached 114. A count issued by an independent researcher in Yangon who has been compiling near-real time death tolls put the total at 107, spread over more than two dozen cities and towns. That’s more than the previous high on March 14, which ranged from 74 to 90.

The killings quickly drew international condemnation, including a joint statement from the defense chiefs of 12 countries.

  1. I dunno, Sheik – what if Trump had actually made a stand, and the National Guard troops around their Capitol then had to kill say 400 Antifa terrorists – would journo’s still be crowing about how “De ebil ‘Mercan regime killed 400 of ‘THEIR OWN PEOPLE!’?

    Armed violent traitors, by definition, aren’t “civilians,” either.
    Just ask Syria’s Assad.

    Burma still has that pesky “Rohingya” (Mohamadan) problem too!

    Just sayin’!

    1. #Trump didn’t have the support of the woke military brass to turn it around.

      In fact, #Trump had ALL THE INSTITUTIONS and the drecks media against him.

      He was betrayed by his own party & the judges he backed.

      The culture of corruption, the swamp, the evil of “pay for play” is all pervasive & self-destructive in America.

      I’m not going to “ask Syria’s Assad” & I’m not concerned about “that pesky “Rohingya” (Mohamadan) problem”.

      America is a part of all of us, and we’re losing it just like we’re losing western civilisation.
