Myanmar is once again under the absolute control of the country’s powerful military.

On February 1, the army staged a coup and declared a state of emergency for one year. The generals detained members of the civilian government and their supporters after accusing them of committing voter fraud during national elections in 2020.

In the ensuing month, anti-coup protests and worker strikes have erupted across Myanmar. Security forces are now responding with deadly force.

101 East documents the rising deaths as people refuse to back down.
