Three months after the military takeover on 1 February 2021, Myanmar is in turmoil. Nationwide opposition continues despite the brutal crackdown that has left the people fearful, exhausted and desperate. More than 750 people have been killed and more than 3500 arrested, charges, detained in unknown locations. Violence by junta armed forces is escalating daily, despite diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis.
