Tuesday, March 16 Capitol Calling Party: Support Activists in Myanmar

On Tuesday, March 16, CODEPINK Congress will focus on the powerful resistance movement in Myanmar (Burma) fighting the military coup that seized power on February 1, 2021. Hosts Marcy Winograd, Medea Benjamin, and Hanieh Jodat Barnes will be joined by Michael Haack, a former campaign coordinator for US Campaign for Burma, a researcher on Myanmar’s history and politics, and now a campaigner with the International Campaign for the Rohingya and No Business with Genocide. Sandra Mon, a Burmese citizen and epidemiologist, will also join us. Sandra's research centers on the intersection of disease dynamics, human rights, and comparative politics in, but not limited to, Southeast Asia.

As part of the coup, the Myanmar military imprisoned leader Aung San Suu Kyi, senior figures from her ruling party, and prominent pro-democracy and human rights advocates. Every day, young people and workers in Myanmar have courageously taken to the streets in a new #CivilDisobedienceMovement (CDM) demanding an end to military rule. The military is now brutally cracking down, injuring and killing peaceful pro-democracy protesters. 

That’s why we will be calling for our representatives to support H.Res.134, a bill condemning the military coup and the detention of civilian leaders, and calling for the release of all those detained and for those elected to serve in Parliament to resume their duties.

Following our guests’ presentations and Q & A, we will host a Capitol Calling Party to take action on supporting the resistance movement in Myanmar.
