100 days have passed since the Myanmar army coup against democracy, popular protests and strikes throughout the country.

Miyamar – 100 days after the sudden coup by the Myanmar army against the democratic authority, the hashtag # May11Coup was published on Twitter in several countries in the world, and thousands of activists shared videos and pictures of protests and strikes in various regions of the country.

Reports also circulated that his lady was killed by the army today, according to activists on Twitter.

In the early hours of Feb 1, just hours before the first sitting of a newly elected parliament in one of Southeast Asia’s most strife-ridden countries, a decade-long experiment in democracy juddered to a halt.
More than three months after Myanmar’s military seized power – mass protests, military crackdowns and diplomatic efforts to restore stability continue. The way ahead for the country of 54 million people remains unclear.
WHAT HAPPENED ON FEB 1?
Before dawn, Myanmar’s military – known as the Tatmadaw – detained State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other officials from the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) party.
An Internet and communications blackout started at about 3am. The military also sealed off roads around the capital Naypyidaw and shut the international airport.
Taking to the air on a military-run TV channel, the Tatmadaw declared a year-long state of emergency. It said power had been handed over to General Min Aung Hlaing and pledged to hold elections in a year’s time.
Simultaneous moves were made in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, where troops seized City Hall just ahead of the military’s announcement.
As the country woke up to this seismic moment, there were some who were initially oblivious to what was playing out in the corridors of power.
Today, May 11, massive protests erupted again across the country against the coup.
