The protests against the military rule in Myanmar are intensifying day by day despite the repression by the security forces. The Irrawaddy reports that over 100 Central Bank of Myanmar staff, including employees from the headquarters in Naypyitaw and branches in Yangon and Mandalay have now joined the protests. Around 500 civil servants gathered at the Myoma market in Naypyitaw, shouting: “Don’t go to work! Leave the office!”
Meanwhile, soldiers raided and ransacked the headquarters of detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s party. The self-declared Parliament of Myanmar had appointed Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as Myanmar State Counsellor through 2025.
