Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Myanmar coup: Military pushes punitive cybersecurity bill” – below is their description.
Myanmar’s military rulers are granting themselves new powers to monitor, search, and detain people involved in protests.
Activists are troubled by the increase in night-time raids by police, but neighbours are banding together to prevent the arrests.
The UN Human Rights Council has called on the military government to release all those who have been arbitrarily detained.
The military government is making plans to impose a so-called “cybersecurity law” that would mean three-year prison sentences for speaking out against the government online.
