Myanmar is an independent state in southeast Asia, formerly known as Burma , a former British colony. For more than 50 years, the country has been under a military dictatorship, meaning limited civil liberties and great poverty for the ordinary citizens.Democratic governance without the intervention of the military. In early 2021, on the pretext that the elections had been forged, the military arrested the country's president and prime minister and again imposed a military dictatorship that lasted for a third month. Mass protests are organized on the streets of major cities, but unfortunately some of the protests are suppressed by force by the military – innocent citizens, journalists, doctors, etc. have been killed.
