In Myanmar, the Suu Kyi government was overthrown by the military junta. Protesters have been outraged by the military junta’s brutality for several days, but so far most of their protests have been peaceful. Students, Buddhist monks, women, employees and even some police officers have taken part in the movement against the military government.
Some are just clapping and singing. Some people are walking around in front of multi-storied buildings. Sarang is a traditional Myanmar dress called ‘Thami’ in Burmese. The people of Myanmar believe that the soldiers are superstitious and they are afraid of Sarang, the soldiers think that it can weaken their strength and spiritual strength.
Many have been seen distributing free food or protective equipment. The only thing everyone wants is to overthrow the military dictatorship in the interest of future generations. At the same time, they are motivating each other to live a healthy life as well as to continue fighting against the government. Those who stay at home are protesting by playing dishes at night. The people of the country traditionally believe that evil can be avoided in this way. In the face of the military’s violent stance, ordinary people are chanting pro-democracy slogans from their verandas or sitting rooms at night to keep the spirit of their movement alive.
In many places, the tune of various songs against the military rule. Earlier, the songs were written to protest against the dictatorship. “Kabar ma keya bu” which means “we will not forget till the end” or “thoye thisar” which means “blood oath” were floating around. The young generation has composed new songs around the movement. One of these is “Reject the Q” or reject the coup.
One line of the song swears, “We will fight to the end.”
Getting out on the streets has become dangerous, so for some people the only place to grieve is their own home. Some are lighting candles and praying in memory of those killed in the protests. They are calling the victims “Fallen Heroes”.
Young people are cleverly writing slogans in the streets, which has become a necessity not only in Yangon but also in big cities across the country. “Reject military coups” or “We want democracy”. Police are removing these slogans till late at night. The next day, these young people are writing the same thing on another street.
The general public has strongly condemned the barbaric behavior of the army and demanded a stronger response from the international community. They are now more frustrated than ever. Because neither the UN nor the Southeast Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (ASEAN) has been able to stop the brutal behavior of this military government. The general public has said that various declarations, statements or sanctions of the western countries against this military government are not enough.
The recent protests have raised a number of slogans against the international community. Many placards read, “How many more bodies are needed for the UN to take action?” They are protesting by writing that. Many people believe that the future of the country depends on the youth, especially the street protests and the civil movement against the ongoing coup.
“The military dictatorship will fall in our age,” said one young man. He has a blood group on his helmet and a contact number of his relatives. Generation Z, who are playing a leading role in this movement, have risen up against this bitter experience of military rule.
This nightmare of violence and attacks may not go away so easily. Because, Myanmar has never been completely free from the influence of its military junta. That is why prominent people do not see the success of this movement easily. However, the young generation has appreciated the determination and determination they are showing against this military rule.
