Myanmar: The Right to Protest and to Cover Protests

14 April 2021.

The Centre for Law and Democracy has released a summary, in English and Burmese, on the rights of protesters in Myanmar and of the media workers who cover protests. Widespread protests have broken out across Myanmar in response to the 1 February 2021 military coup d’etat, and the military has responded with arrests, detentions, and violence, sometimes lethal. The summary covers the international human rights standards applicable to protests and provides tips for protesters and journalists on the ground.

The summary is available here in English and Burmese.
