Martial Law and the Devastating Toll on Civilians in Southeastern Burma as the Junta Continues to Commit Human Rights Violations With Impunity
The third anniversary of the failed coup was commemorated on 1 February, 2023. To mark the day, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM), called upon the international community to use their platforms and diplomatic will to change the deeply concerning trajectory of violence in Burma. It begins with measures and concrete steps that prosecute Min Aung Hlaing and end his legacy of tyranny.
Across the country, civilians participated in nationwide Silent Strikes to show their disdain and ongoing rejection of the military. Many photographs taken by the network reporters showed empty main roads in Southeastern Burma, including deserted streets, and markets.
