Police in Myanmar broke up demonstrations in several places with tear gas and gunfire on Thursday but there was no immediate word on casualties a day after the United Nations said 38 people had been killed in the bloodiest day since last month’s coup.

Undeterred by the crackdown, activists said they refused to accept military rule and were determined to press for the release of elected government leader Aung San Suu Kyi and recognition of her victory in a November election.

“We know that we can always get shot and killed with live bullets but there is no meaning to staying alive under the junta,” activist Maung Saungkha told Reuters.

Police later opened fire and used tear gas to break up protests in Yangon and the central town of Monywa, witnesses said. Police also fired in the town of Pathein, to the west of Yangon, media reported.

"The country is like the Tiananmen Square in most of its major cities," the Archbishop of Yangon, Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, said on Twitter, alluding to the suppression of student-led protests in Beijing in 1989.

Well, dear Cardinal, that makes 2 strikes for you in the CCP punishment book (one for being a Catholic and one for spreading the fake news that there was a massacre in Beijing in 1989. Off to the re-education camp soon.....

Full steam ahead for China-Myanmar high-speed railway

 

There is a geopolitical reason for everything that happend from the genoside of the Rohignas to the military coup. 

It is all staged by China to speed up their takeover of the Kyaukphyu - Kunming railroad and pipeline corridor and Kyaukphyu Deep Sea Harbor and economic zones. There is also a gas pipeline from the burmese gasfields.

 It is part of their Belt & Road and of great concern to control and explained in this article in Asia Times on february 21, 2019.
