Myanmar coup: Facebook blocks military-run news site – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Myanmar entered its second week of nightly internet shutdowns, monitoring group NetBlocks reported.

The junta has been regularly blocking the web to try to stifle mass protests.

Earlier, social media giant Facebook deleted a news site run by the military that is used to issue warnings to protesters and push its allegations about the election results.

Facebook is the primary source of information and news in Myanmar. An estimated 22 million of the 54 million people in Myanmar use Facebook.

The US-sponsored color revolution will not succeed, because there's not enough homegrown and organic support from the ground. The US-sponsored color revolution in Myanmar will end badly like the US invasion of South Vietnam.

Back when Myanmar was annexed by the British colonial masters as a province of India, Myanmar was largely democratic. Return Myanmar to India. Problem solved.

People praising Facebook are so ignorant. Whether what they are doing is right or wrong is irrelevant. This company clearly has too much power and constantly influences politics all around the world. Don’t complain when it’s your country if you’re praising their actions now.

Too late Facebook!

Jeikobu Okunijuyon February 23, 2021 - 8:06 PM

Myanmar doesn't deserve democracy.

Alternative Facts February 23, 2021 - 8:11 PM

If Aung San Su Kyi is democracy in Myanmar God help them.

Ojisan Derosuke February 23, 2021 - 8:12 PM

Facebook should just be destroyed and deleted off the internet

De Mium February 23, 2021 - 8:14 PM

Estimated 20 millions people joined the protest all across the country

They ignored Rohingyas in their time of need. Karma.

Neil Wilde February 23, 2021 - 8:19 PM

Big Tech seems to be the new government "super power" or something…they are now involved in every other political story

China doesn't want a democracy in its door step!

hksolo February 23, 2021 - 8:20 PM

Just like bbc reports good things about uk, but never reveal the ugly side of it. Like ethnic cleansing of native americans, killing innocent civilians in american independence war, burning the white house down. Involving slave trade.

Pick grow up February 23, 2021 - 8:23 PM

Just like they are standing firm for democracy, I hope one day they will stand for humanity too. May they wash away the hatred the military Propaganda nurtured in their hearts towards minority Muslims. God bless all
