Myanmar: An Uneasy Alliance | People and Power

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Myanmar: An Uneasy Alliance | People and Power” – below is their description.

When Myanmar’s military regime ended its flirtation with the representative government in February 2021, it marked the moment by killing several hundred anti-coup protesters and detaining thousands more – including Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Prize-winning leader of the National League for Democracy.

So now some activists are taking a more aggressive approach to the Tatmadaw, as the country’s armed forces are known. They have been heading to remote jungle regions to seek support from armed ethnic organisations, which have been waging their own on-off war with the Myanmar military leaders for decades.

People & Power visits a secret training camp to find out more.
