Myanmar Civilian GovernmentBurma Civil Government
Myanmar's leaders are dark after two years of civil government.
She is known as a general practitioner in Taungoo, a medium-sized town in the Burma Plain. However, three years ago, she was asked by the National League for Democracy in Myanmar, the National League for Democracy under the leadership of Aung San Suu Kyi, the campaigner whose long democratic struggle helped to end Myanmar's junta's military government, to run for MEPs.
She' s sitting through long, tedious parliament meetings in Naypyidaw, the Myanmar city. "We want to capture an elephant, but we can't even capture ants," sighed a new legislation. Overseas advisors are increasingly suspicious of their lawsuits about Myanmar's prosecution of the Muslim Rohingya group. A bill has been adopted by the federal administration to make it easy for the riot squad to stop protest.
A long-time political analyst on Burma, Mael Raynaud states that the detained NLD leader did not experience a period of civic prosperity in the 2000s thanks to military easing and in reaction to a catastrophic cycle.
Myanmar's administration is sitting here while the military goes on the attack.
ACCORDING to the battles between the Burma military and the Kachin Independence Military (KIA), an insurgency that controls much of Myanmar's north-extreme, tens of thousand Germans escaped into the bush. Several hiked for a few months before they reached Myitkyina, the capitol of the state of Kachin, where they found shelter in a nearby temple.
The Red Cross reports that almost 7,000 people have been evicted since early April, in addition to the 100,000 already expelled. There is nothing new about force in this part of Myanmar. Kachin State's warmongering has been unstoppable since the collapse of a cease-fire between the Burma military and the KIA in 2011.
Tens of similar guerilla groups that represent oppressed minority groups have been struggling for years against the federal administration and calling for greater independence. However, the military routinely attack the rebels' stations during the drought. Last June, junior troops assaulted landmines which they said were operated Igally. On the pretext of environmental protection, two month later, Kachin's state meeting troops suggested turning parts of Tanai into "restricted areas.
A militia-led ethnical group associated with the KIA in neighboring Shaan State recently launched a violent assault on a cafeteria run by militia officers near the military. Cross-fire prisoners carry the main burden. Kachin Women's Association Thailand, a charitable organization, says that troops use civil men as shield and minehunters.
Burma's military is refusing to set up new refugee camp, even if it would make it much simpler to help them. A group of Kachin youth protested in Myitkyina, indignant about the aggression of the war. They are suing the organizers for slander - a felony threatened with up to two years in prison.
Antiwar protests extended to other towns, such as Yangon, the trading capitol that attracted young, municipal Burmese from the Bamar minority and nationalities. "We' ve been fighting a civilian battle too long," said one of the participants. Myanmar's de facto ruler since 2016, Aung San Suu Kyi, says she has made freedom her top concern.
According to the draft Constitutional Treaty drawn up by the general, the civil authority does not supervise either the military or the policemen. However, their administration still looks unhappy. A Khon Ja, a Kachin militant, points out that the country's peacemaker is the former private physician of Ms Suu Kyi and that the prime prime minister she has appointed is a former dental practitioner.
He is described by a member of parliament as a kind man, but he does not confront the military. Civil rule has more power than it acknowledges. In any case, Ms Suu Kyi could inform the military and demand an end to the attack, rather than remain quiet.
