Myanmar leader pushes for “revolution”

As more protestors are killed in Myanmar, National League for Democracy Party figure Mahn Win Khaing Than has called on Myanmar’s citizens to continue to resist the country’s military leadership. He escaped arrest in the early days of the coup that saw Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi detained and charged. Than remains in hiding with other senior officials and leads a newly formed group called the Committee for Presenting Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH), which is seeking international recognition as Myanmar’s rightful government. The group has been deemed illegal by the military. Reports say more than 80 protestors have died in clashes with authorities since 1 February. #SquizShortcut
