According to AAPP documentation, at least (900) houses and buildings have been sealed off by the junta between February 2021 and November 2022.  

Since the February 1, 2021, military coup and the emergence of the Spring Revolution, a total of (2589) people, pro-democracy activists and other civilians have been killed through military crackdowns following pro-democracy movements.
