Myanmar: could defecting security forces bring down the military regime?

Myanmar: could defecting security forces bring down the military regime? Natasha Lindstaedt, University of Essex Just over ten years ago there were hopes that Myanmar might become a fully functioning democracy. Today there are concerns that the country may disintegrate into civil war. The widespread opposition to the military’s brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters also includes possibly as many as three-quarters of the soldiers in Myanmar’s army, according to an officer who has recently defected. If this is accurate, there could be large-scale defections in the near future. But what does this mean for the future of democracy in Myanmar? And is Myanmar on the precipice of civil war? Myanmar’s security apparatus is large, consisting of an army of about 350,000-400,000, most...

As killings, beatings and disappearances escalate, what’s the end game in Myanmar?

Image Via Twitter As killings, beatings and disappearances escalate, what's the end game in Myanmar? Adam Simpson, University of South Australia and Nicholas Farrelly, University of Tasmania Myanmar’s military appears to be testing out a range of vicious tactics in the hope something will stem the protest movements that have embroiled the country since the coup in early February. The military crossed a grim threshold last Wednesday when security forces fired live rounds at protesters across the country, resulting in what the UN said were at least 30 deaths and hundreds of critical injuries. Then, on Saturday, security forces beat and took away Khin Maung Latt, a Muslim ward chairman for the former ruling party, the National League for Democracy (NLD). The next morning, the famil...

We know how to cut off the financial valve to Myanmar’s military. The world just needs the resolve to act

We know how to cut off the financial valve to Myanmar's military. The world just needs the resolve to act Jonathan Liljeblad, Australian National University Since the coup in Myanmar on February 1, the international community has struggled to agree on coherent action against the military (also known as the Tatmadaw). Tough action by the UN Security Council has been stymied by China, Russia, India and Vietnam, who see the Myanmar crisis as an internal affair. Outside the UN, a strong, coordinated response by Myanmar’s neighbours in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has also been lacking due to their reluctance to interfere in each other’s affairs. Thai political expert Thitinan Pongsudhirak called it an “existential crisis” for the bloc. Read mo...

Resistance to military regime in Myanmar mounts as nurses, bankers join protests – despite bloody crackdown

Resistance to military regime in Myanmar mounts as nurses, bankers join protests – despite bloody crackdown Nurses in Myanmar have been striking since February to protest the military coup. STR/AFP via Getty Images Tharaphi Than, Northern Illinois University Young people were the first in Myanmar to peacefully protest the country’s new military regime. Then came labor unions. In the weeks since a Feb. 1 military coup, Mynamar’s resistance movement has expanded dramatically to include some perhaps unlikely activists: doctors, nurses, bankers, grocers, railway workers and other working professionals risking their middle-class comforts. Myanmar was under military rule from 1988 to 2011. During the elections in 2015, the National Democratic League...

Myanmar's military has used surveillance, draconian laws and fear to stifle dissent before. Will it work again? DB Subedi, University of New England and Johanna Garnett, University of New England Myanmar has once again returned to military rule, with a year-long state of emergency declared by the army. When military dictators ruled Myanmar from 1962 to 2010, they were able to maintain tight control over the people through the country’s extensive intelligence apparatus and harsh tactics such as imprisonment, torture and mass killings. As a result, Myanmar’s people lived in virtual silence for decades. After a decade-long political transition that brought Aung San Suu Kyi...

Myanmar coup: how the military has held onto power for 60 years

Myanmar coup: how the military has held onto power for 60 years h. Michael W. Charney, SOAS, University of London The military once again hold the reins of power in Myanmar. Citing constitutional provisions that give the military control in national emergencies, army officers detained government leaders in the early hours of February 1 2021, including state counsellor and popular national leader Aung San Suu Kyi. An announcement on military television said the move was in response to “fraud” during last year’s general election. A spokesman said power had been handed to the army’s commander-in-chief, General Min Aung Hlaing, who would hold power for one year, after which there would be new elections. Military control of the government is noth...
