South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Fires set at Chinese factories in Myanmar during deadliest day of anti-coup protests” – below is their description.
Myanmar has seen one of its deadliest days of anti-coup protests yet, as at least 38 people were killed on March 14, 2021, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP). On the same day, some protesters directed their anger at China by setting fire to Chinese factories in Yangon. China’s embassy in Yangon used its Facebook page to condemn the blazes as “acts of violence”. Anti-China sentiment has been mounting in the country, with some demonstrators suggesting that the nation’s military has been supported by Beijing. Civilian leader Mahn Win Khaing, the former speaker of the house during Aung San Suu Kyi’s previous administration, said the shadow government will continue supporting a “revolution” to oust the military that seized power in the February 1 coup.
