On November 8 last year, Burma held an election with a democratic result. The 1 February 2021 illegitimate coup happened because the military rejected the people’s desire. Yet, the Spring Revolution is more powerful, it is for a democratic federal union.

Thinzar Zaw, a member of Dagon University Students’ Union, and a third year chemistry student, was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment under Section 124-B(a) of the Penal Code, by a military tribunal. Six students including Thinzar Zaw were arrested on the night of September 14 at Kyauktada Township in Yangon Region. Sithu Aung Tin, one of the six students, was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment on November 3.

On the night of November 7, terrorist junta soldiers raided Pauk Pin Village in Monywa Township, Sagaing Region. The soldiers entered the wrong house, and shot dead Mya Lay Nwel in the chest and neck, while she was running away in fear.
