Australian Institute of International Affairs – 12 february 2021

“Since the coup, millions of Myanmar people have voiced their outrage, marching in huge numbers, calling for Aung San Suu Kyi’s release from detention and for the military to abandon its claim to power. It does not help the Senior General’s chances that Myanmar’s talented young people have also learned the three-finger salute from Hunger Games, drawing direct inspiration from Thailand’s youthful uprising. The top military men are not the only ones who take lessons from their neighbours.”

Nicholas Farrelly (T.wai & University of Tasmania) on the Myanmar crisis, for the Australian Institute of International Affairs.
