Civil liberties in Myanmar under attack

This 9 September 2017 video is called Rallies worldwide to protest violence against Rohingya in Myanmar.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

MYANMAR: About 200 people marched in Yangon yesterday as 400 civil society groups issued a statement against government plans to more easily charge demonstrators with crimes and impose longer sentences.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s administration wants to increase the maximum jail time for organisers of unapproved protests from six months to three years.

Top UN official says it’s ‘not safe’ for Rohingya refugees to return to Myanmar: here.
