Protesters took to the streets on motorbikes in Myanmar’s southern city of Dawei, Tuesday, May 11, despite crackdowns from security forces. ————————— READ MORE: The U.N. human rights office is calling for more international pressure against Myanmar’s military junta, which it says has continued a brutal crackdown on opponents despite a recent agreement to halt violence and begin dialogue. Credible sources report at least 782 people have been killed since Myanmar’s military authorities seized control of the country on February 1 and ousted its democratically elected leaders. The U.N. Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights says the military shows no sign of easing its crackdown on opponents, who remain defiant and continue to protest against the coup leaders. The High Commissioner’s spokesman, Rupert Colville, said besides killing protesters, military authorities continue to commit other gross violations of human rights against Myanmar’s people. ————————— LINK: https://www.voanews.com/east-asia-pacific/un-calls-more-international-pressure-against-myanmar-junta
