On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar military (known as the Tatmadaw) staged a coup d’état against the democratic government. In reality, democracy in Myanmar is highly debatable. Since the first general elections were held in 2015, the military has reserved large shares of power for itself.
What’s more, Myanmar’s top leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has turned out to be a huge disappointment: before she came to power, it seemed that she would turn this country into a bastion of democracy and human rights in the region. However, under her rule, genocides have been perpetrated against racial minorities.
Why has the Myanmar Army staged a coup d’état? What chance do Burmese citizens have of preserving their frail democracy? In this video we tell you.
