Ma Thin Thin Aung is an advocate for women’s rights, free media and democracy in Myanmar. On 8 April 2021, members of Burmese army in plain clothes arrested and detained her. Her crime?
Helping run an independent media and news platform covering the military coup. Now she is in prison. COVID is running wild and she has chronic asthma.
As Myanmar spirals into civil war, the military junta is using violence and torture against women, men and children every day. Millions of people are going hungry.
The military has killed over 1000 people. This includes 75 children. The military has arrested more than 5000 people like Ma Thin Thin Aung.
Trade unions are outlawed. Free media is being shut down. The military is committing violence and sexual crimes against women including people languishing in prison.
What’s more, the military continues to bankroll its campaign of terror with money from the mining, oil, and gas sectors.
