    The MSG Pod: Episode 007 - Myanmar Protestor

    34:07

    On the morning of 1 February 2021, democratically elected members of Myanmar's ruling party, the National League for Democracy, were deposed by the Tatmadaw—Myanmar's military. The Tatmadaw proclaimed a year-long State of Emergency, declared power had been vested in Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Min Aung Hlaing and declared the results of the November 2020 general election invalid. President Win Myint and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi were detained, along with ministers, their deputies and members of Parliament, and other prominent political leaders and activists. The people of Myanmar responded with a country-wide (and creative) Civil Disobedience Movement, uniting all religions and ethnic groups against the military regime. The military in turn have responded with violence and bloodshed. MiMi spoke to an anonymous restaurateur in Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar, about dealing with the devastating effects of both a pandemic and a coup.
