Protests in Myanmar continue despite military release of thousands of detainees – World


Protests against the coup d’état continue this Friday in the streets of Myanmar (formerly Burma), when thousands of prisoners were released by the military junta, which continues, however, with the arrest of opponents.

About 250 people have now been detained since the February 1 coup that deposed the government of Aung San Suu Kyi, according to a non-governmental organization that helps political prisoners, including local officials, members of parliament, members of the election commission and activists.

Protesters demand that power be returned to the government of Aung San Suu Kyi, the release of the Nobel Peace Prize (1991) and other members of his party, the National League for Democracy, detained after the military closed the first session of the new Parliament on February 1.
