In the early hours of February 1st, 2021, Myanmar’s military staged a coup d’etat against its democratically elected government. Myanmar’s defacto civilian leader, Aung san suu kyi was arrested, alongside Myanmar’s president and dozens of other civilian officials. By the afternoon, the military had announced the imposition of a one-year state of emergency, in which supreme legislative, executive, and judicial power would be granted to a Senior General of the military, Min Aung Hlaing. In the weeks since, thousands of Burmese people have taken to the streets to protest the coup, and demand a return to civilian rule. How have the lives of those in Myanmar changed since the coup, what are the prospects for a return to civilian rule, and in what ways have geopolitics affected international response? To help us answer these questions, today on the podcast we are joined by Mr. Sebastian Strangio.
