Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand

"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

Protests Persist In Myanmar Even As The Military Tightens Its Grip On Power

"Saying they'll hand over authority to whomever wins. What they're not saying, though, is when that election will happen. Huge protests are still happening across me and marred by day and by night when police come to neighborhood searching for protesters to arrest Residents turn out banging pots and pans. Many people just want their democracy back. But Myanmar's ethnic minorities say this uprising needs to go much further as the world's Patrick win reports When Stella Naw was a little girl going to school in the hilly northern part of Myanmar, she learned all about the greatness of the Burmese, the country's dominant ethnic group. She learned about their ancient kings, how they built Golden temples and had mighty armies. That was fine. But what about her ethnic group, the kitchen with more than a million people, mostly living in the mountains? Well, the textbooks didn't say much about them at all about the kitchen people with about two lines. We were just learning as we were learning about some people who were extinct, already not totally extinct, the school, said. The kitchen where farmers who like to do this neat dance Stella says that was about it. We were nothing more than some cute people with not much history. This is how the country's military rulers who are all ethnically Burmese tend to see minorities as people who should just assimilate. Get out of the way. But in Myanmar more than a third of all people are minorities groups such as the Sean Kitchen Corin kn mon, wiry, kind Chen Rohingya. It is a very diverse place yet the army has been trying to colonize their indigenous lands for decades. Often brutally even blasting villages with fighter jets. I asked Elena, who is now a political writer and activist how her people the kitchen tend to feel about the army. Disgust, fear they feel disgust set off the military for all the human rights abuses that they have committed against the community members. Two weeks ago, when the general sees total power in a coup rolling tanks through major cities, including the Heartland where most Burmese people live, Stella gnaw and other minorities were like Yeah, looks familiar. I even have someone asking me how do you feel to lose their freedom? All of us sudden, like I never felt like we had the freedom to begin where, right? Myanmar is now in the throes of a huge uprising at people's uprising, with doctors and students and factory work per person. Strike everyday people standing up the tanks and riot cops and rarely has the whole country. All the racial groups been united United in anger at the military. For Stella. Naw, it feels pivotal, like okay, now, maybe we're all on the same page. This is an opportunity, maybe to help them understand a bit, but also, we can really hope and expect too much because they are so focused on releasing freeing often Sergi Aung San Suu cheat the most popular political leader in the country ever. Especially among the Burmese majority. She's backed by the US and for the past five years on sense, UCI has shared power with the Army until the coup That was the status quo. What many minorities are now telling their Burmese brothers and sisters is let's fight for a real democracy because that status quo For many, it was miserable. It's a village on fire the village once home to Rohingya Muslims following an army purge about three years ago. The army has violently driven more than one million Rohingya out of the country. Years. Nay Sandlin, a Rohingya activist, You know military is the one who committed the genocide against the Rohingya. So we have no reason to support this military coup. But he does say that for his people. The coup doesn't change much. Many already live under an apartheid like system. For example, most Rohingya can't vote. And, yes, he says, some Rohingya refugees did enjoy seeing on Sans Souci get ousted after all on San Souci did go to The Hague in 2019 to defend the army against charges of genocide. Niece. Unwin says that celebrating was just a knee jerk reaction. We informed them. This is not the right way to enjoy detention off society. We have to support the public movement, even if we don't want to support heart or the whole party. They take the long view. He says that the army will never change its ways. But maybe in the future elected officials might begin to stick up for the Romanian. So now in refugee camps, you can hear this growing in survivors of genocide, beating pots and pans in solidarity with Burmese protesters. Nation. Lin is even seeing Burmese people who never stood up for the Rohingya saying Sorry we should have done something they realized their cruelty off this military. And they have the sympathy for us. But like Stella, non, he knows racism won't just go away overnight. This racism is deeply rooted in the country, so it will take a lot of time to change. Only they don't have time. This mass resistance is happening now. And Stellan Aw says it needs to become a more inclusive fight, not just for democracy, but to get the army off. Minorities backs once and for all. That's what brings kitchen people out on the streets in her hometown machina. You see fewer protest signs about Aung San Souci, and more that say, Abolish the Constitution basically overhaul the entire system. But this is how security forces responded to that. Over the weekend, Paul getting a boat, a barrage of rubber bullet, Maybe some real bullets seemingly fired in the air. No confirmed casualties That's from a Facebook live stream. But the army keeps blocking the Internet nationwide, in part to keep the world from seeing these crackdowns. What's clear is that resistance is becoming very dangerous for everyone. That's why Stella Naw says the only solution is to stick together, so we need to work together for this country to work and not become a failed nation, which is already on the way Myanmar's minority groups know quite well, she says that this army will not back down easily. For the world. I'm Patrick Win. Francis Cyber Security Agency says several French entities have been breached in a hacking campaign. They say the G R U

Biden announces US will sanction Myanmar's military leaders following coup

"Last week's data in myanmar provided the new us administration of president joe biden with its first major foreign policy crisis. We now have an idea of america's response. President biden has signed an executive order imposing sanctions on the coup leaders. This will be followed by measures to block the myanmar's military access to government funds held in the us. Further measures seem likely showed the gionta not to american demands that democratic order be restored one by louis lukens former. Us diplomat now senior partner with cigna global advisors liu first of all this all seem certainly measured against the last four years widely normal. Doesn't it well it does. You're right andrew. It does seem normal and there is a policy process in washington. That was carried out there. Tony blinken and president biden consulted with about this issue and then came to a decision to impose sanctions so very normal. Didn't learn about it by tweet. Sort of back to the good old days of foreign policy. I think not that. I'm wishing to sound overly nostalgic four the immediately preceding four years. But in an instance like this is this orthodoxy helpful. I mean the demand. Maurice generals rather priced this in. Wouldn't they well. The process and the consultant with allies is helpful whether sanctions themselves will be useful remains to be seen sanctions. Tend to have very limited effectiveness and the people who are targeted by sanctions. In this case the military leadership Tend to be able to to be somewhat immune to the effects of the sanctions. They and so the. Us has walk a very fine line in trying to punish the leadership but in a way. That doesn't actually trickle down and really hurt. The the average burmese people who who are responsible for the the off course well just as a general principle then. Is there any reason to imagine that the people behind the coup. D'etat actually care what. The united states thinks that. This point probably not much reason to think that they care you know. China is their number one trading partner. They do roughly three third of their trade with china and the us is not even in the top five list of trading partners So you know it's great that the us has a couple allies on board. And i think the tony blinken talk to his japanese counterpart yesterday to to sort of coordinate a little bit on this but if china is not going to impose sanctions which they won't it really reduces the effectiveness of what the us can do in that especially in that country where we have very few ties. So how much of the american response. So far and i guess what we might still see often. American response is not so much the new. Us administration hoping it can affect an outcome in this specific circumstance but is more trying to set a general tone trying to establish. This is how this administration is going to do business. This is how we're going to react to things. Yeah look. I mean even if even if the sanctions are completely symbolic sends an important message that the that the united states will not tolerate this kind of activity and will work to promote the the sustenance of democratic governments around the world if the united states had ignored the coup in myanmar mar. I think that would send a message to people thinking about overthrowing governments around the world that hey we can do this now and get away with it now. The burmese military leaders may still get away with it remains to be seen whether the us sanctions will have any effect or not but the us had to send a message in some ways. This is a new administration and we're gonna take democracy seriously. How much more. Careful is the united states being about me on mob this time than it might have been during the previous stretch of military rule because in that period of course it did seem like a much more straightforward good guys versus bad guys proposition than you had this. All neha canonized a leader in waiting under house arrest on sang suci Whose stature. I think has been somewhat reduced by her own complicity with the people who've just thrown out of a job. Yeah i mean certainly. Her stature has been diminished over the last years in. Not just yeah. i mean. Basically because of her alignment with the military leaders in sort of her reaction to the the genocide in myanmar. That said i think the united states is trying to look at is not from the perspective of individual personalities but from the perspective of the principles of democracy and our unwillingness or or distaste for To go along with with appearing to support a military coup so we have to come out. The united states had to come out and strongly against this coup and short of military action economic sanctions against the people who perpetrated a coup really. The only way to go for now. The united states does of course have a diplomatic relationship with me on march for the moment at least any way you have been a diplomat serving abroad for the united states in a in a circumstance like this is there anything ambassadors another embassy staff on the ground candu or is it more likely case. They've just been told to make as little noise as they possibly can. Well i think the probably been quite vocal. I think in and you have to walk a fine line. You don't wanna be so vocal against the new leaders in the military that that you get thrown out of the country because certainly that is a possibility now. But you wanna make america's presence known and you wanna know you wanna make america's policies known so my guess is that Certainly through social media which is of limited value in me mark. I think the government has cut down. Cut off a lot of the internet but they they will be trying to work through their networks of of Dissenters and people in civil society to try to get the word out that the united states is with you. And we're working on this. How important is it to the united states to get at least some sort of result out of this. I mean i understand what you're saying about. How the united states is obliged to lay down the law here especially with the new administration but he is there a risk that they are seen to have done exactly that and have not make the blindest bit of difference to anything. Well there is a risk. I mean if if the us government left it as it is now the just the sanctions. That would be a worry but my guess is that Tony blinken will be is embarking on on a of diplomacy with counterparts around the world to try to to you take it to the next level not necessarily only through sanctions through a global reaction against this coup again. It comes back to the challenge. That is hard to do something. The un security council If china doesn't go along with it and china's unlikely to go along with any condemnation of the military leaders in in myanmar But i think tony blinken will certainly be trying to rally allies onto the us side honest

Biden Imposes Sanctions on Generals Who Engineered Myanmar Coup

"At russian protests. Plenty of people holding up gold painted toilet. Brushes luxuriant lose can tell you a lot about despotic leaders. So we head into the smallest rooms from history but i for the sixth consecutive day across me on mar. Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets. They've been demonstrating since the military seized power last week. Overthrowing the elected government of aung san suu achieve. The army has claimed without evidence that an election in november one by miss sushi's party was fraudulent cinema. Today you've got. Where do ya on monday. The top military commander now in charge me. An online made his first televised address since the coup. He restated pledge to hold elections after year long state of emergency and he tried to reassure the public and investors that his interim government would be different from the oppressive That ran the country for nearly half a century. But america said yesterday it will impose fresh sanctions in response to the coup. I've approved a new executive order enabling us to sanction the military leaders who directed the coup their business interests as well as close family members and myanmar's biggest protest movement in a generation isn't backing down every night since the army toppled me and mars civilian government on february. First people all over. The country have banged their pots and pans at atm. This is an old ritual to cast out evil spirits which has morphed into a protest. Totally mccann are southeast. Asia correspondent. Many of these demonstrations have the air of carnival yesterday about one hundred young women paraded around downtown gone wearing disney princess outfits because they wanted to make the point that it wasn't just grownups who are angry about the coup. It's also girls. Their age and the streets are flooded with red balloons. Red being the color of aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party then lt in fact if you look at pictures today you won't see that many red balloons anymore. Because they've all sold out and how has the military reacted to all these protests. What's changed since we spoke just over a week ago when the protests hadn't started but there was clearly discontent about the coup. The army is trying to put a stop to these protests on monday. It's ian named true news. Information team issued a statement saying that action would be taken against wrongdoers who disrupt the state stability true to their word in cities across the country. Police are lobbing tear gas into crowds firing water cannon in mandalay me and mars second city. The police tried to disperse a crowd by beating them with truncheons and police are also firing rubber bullets. Three protesters are now being treated for wounds from bullets. And two people in the capital naypyidaw were shot with what seems to have been live ammunition and so as the military response ramps up our people frightened of what might happen if they continue to take the streets. Yeah i mean despite the carnival ask air of some of these protests. There is a deep sense of foreboding. Military rule only ended ten years ago so people remember how the previous junta crush dissent huge rallies took place nine hundred eighty eight and two thousand and seven and the army responded by shooting into crowds of protesters killing hundreds of people so protesters today are right to be worried. And they're alive. The fact that the military regime is up to his old tricks again. Agents from feared intelligence service or knocking on doors driving many activists and journalists into hiding at least two hundred people have arrested and on monday ninety districts including in the largest city and the capital impose curfews and restricted gatherings to no more than five people effectively criminalizing public assembly and last night the draft of new cybersecurity law. The government wants to pass was leaked. This would give regime sweeping powers to control the internet and effectively end free speech online so given all of those risks. Who is it that that's daring to go out into the streets. It is people from all walks of life. Teenagers labor's professionals. Lots of people are on strike teachers. Firefighters and health workers government workers are resigning en masse among them the entirety of the ministry of welfare. We saw extraordinary scenes on tuesday. The handful of officers in the police force actually broke ranks and join the protesters extraordinary because the police under the command of the army. So it's very unusual for them to be doing this and joining them yesterday. Where nearly fifty police officers from kaya state who declared their opposition to the coup. And what does it they all want. Of course they to reverse the coup they want to restore democracy and they want the release of their hero. Aung san suu cheap as well as other members of her nationally for democracy party who also been detained and do you think there's a chance that with all of this unrest who might backfire on the general's not just the response of people i suppose but also international response. It certainly hasn't been the fate of they expected. Mass resignations. i mentioned are roiling. the bureaucracy and form businesses are exiting the country so analysts saying it's going to be very difficult to see how they got some kind of status quo ante and younger generations are not going to back down easily. They're educated than they were a decade ago more organized and much more connected because of the arrival of the internet about a decade ago us leaders demands are hardening. They're talking about ending army rule altogether and scrapping the constitution which the generals wrote some activists. I interviewed said that if non violent protests fail they are bent on taking weapons and fighting when it comes to the international community in america. President joe biden said yesterday that he had approved an executive order that will pave the way for new. us sanctions. We will identify first round of targets this week. And we're also going to impose strong exports controls we're freezing. Us assets that benefit the burmese government while maintaining our support for healthcare civil society groups and other areas that benefit the people of burma directly but will these sanctions do much. Do you think. Joe biden has staked his foreign policy on reinvigorating democracy around the world. And that's why he's so keen throughout these sanctions but they are unlikely to convince the generals to change course just two years ago and nineteen the commander in chief minister lying and three other generals had sanctions placed on them by the us they proceeded with their coup. Anyway they're used to being isolated by the world and i just don't think that america's sanctions are going to convince them to change course. I feel that this conflict from the protest was in the army may be coming to ahead. The commander in chief is a deeply proud man and he will not stand by as the institution to which is dedicated to his career is humiliated by protesters and disney princess outfits at the same time. The protesters are digging in their heels. I think it's become clear that over the last week there's no returning to the quasi democracy at me and mom -joyed of the last decade either. The army cracks down and it's returned to the battle. Days of military rule or a new political system is going to emerge from the rooms of the old one. My fear is that the former scenario seems much will likely the ladder.

Protesters Rally Across Myanmar, Defying Coup and Risking Crackdown

"We start today's program with the ongoing turbulence in myanmar. Massive crowds of protesters have taken to the streets as demonstrations continue against last week's coup in which the army detained elected leader. Angsana suci over the weekend me and my its largest protests in more than ten years. It's also reported that police in the capital have used water cannon on workers conducting nationwide strikes for more on this. We're joined now by professor penny green. Who's amendment expert and director of the international state crime initiative. A penny. good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us. Just tell us first of all about your reaction to what we've seen and indeed heard about over the weekend Water cannon deployed these huge protests This is something quite different than we've seen for well more than a decade yes indeed. The last massive set of protest took place in two thousand and seven. And and i think it's. It's really quite remarkable. What's happening inside. Myanmar at the moment and the courage of the demonstrators is is really phenomenal. I think that many of these people especially the young have really effectively only known some kind of democracy albeit very fragile. I mean it was very very weak democracy but the freedom that came with after five decades of military rule is something that the people of do not want to let go of. I'm penny we'll talk. Maybe in a moment about what the military's reaction to this might be sort of medium-term in a second. But i did want to ask you about that point about the this as brickley democracy as you pointed out it is nevertheless it. Is you know thirteen. Fourteen years of that and so many people who are teenagers young people students will only have known that. Do you think that reflects. I don't know if it's a miscalculation by the military but it may be an underestimation of exactly how wedded to those notions. This this younger demographic all is it probably is a miscalculation. I think that the military scared basically very fearful of the power of the people of myanmar. They lost so badly there. They're usd pm. Military party lost extremely badly in the november twenty elections And as a result. I think Recognized in some senses that the writing perhaps was on the wall and the only way that they could shore up. The future of their their authority was to initiate a coup. I mean there are all sorts of other explanations for the kutu loudly relating to the the power and wealth of Commander in chief gentleman lie. But i do think that they have probably miscalculated But it's it's also true to say that the man my people. The burmese historically have risen up against the brutality and repression of military hunters in the past particularly nine hundred ninety eight and again in two thousand and seven even though they hadn't been tasting democracy in the recent past. So i think that there is that that there is that desire for freedom which will emerge. I'm presented itself in. These kinds of situations are well short term than the police have been very clear as as we mentioned you know that's been the deployment of water cannon In napa all ready and you know it's been presented as very much a choice to the protesters leave move on or face force potentially increasing force. Do we have any sense of the lengths to which the military and police authorities will go to in terms of escalating that force in terms of the potential for more violence on the streets. Well we look at history. We know that this military is capable of the most barbarous repression. We only have to look at the genocide hinge which took place in over the last over this infect period of so-called democracy But the worst of it was saying in two thousand seventeen when thousands were killed and eight. Hundred thousand were driven across the border into bangladesh. And if we could look back historically to two thousand to two thousand and seventeen to nineteen ninety eight. The military deployed Brutal force against all forms of demonstrators. So we know that that is on the cards. And they have issued a message via state media to the people of myanmar now to say that unless you abide by the law you have to expect that there will be A reaction and that reaction. The people of myemma know well. We'll be one of violence.

Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup

"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.

Who is the international community?

"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this

Journalist In Myanmar Recounts Ongoing Military Coup

"No one quite expected them to do it. That's what a journalist says in Myanmar after a military coup. The armed forces have never been fully out of power in that country. But in 2015, they allow democratic elections won by the party of Aung San Souci. She had received a Nobel Prize for her decades long fight for democracy, including years under arrest. The military's partial retreat allowed me and Marta and its global isolation. Then this week, the military retook full power and on sans Souci is detained again. Parts of the Internet are blocked and Myanmar but we reached journalist Amen Thon and Yangon, which is a city of some five million. There's a curfew union go on at 8 P.m.. Every night, People have been going on to the bathroom ease or outside to the front of their homes and banging pots and pans. It's a traditional Berman's ritual to get rid of evil spirits in your house every night. It's been getting louder and longer, and you could just hear the sound echoing through the city. We should remind people that the coup was over and election result in November and had been feared for some time. Was there a great deal of suspense in recent months? Not really. But it wasn't a complete surprise, but no one quite expected them to do it. People assume that that this was, you know, posturing and threats. But you know, leading up to the last couple days before the coup. There were some really alarming pictures of a tank in London, as well as unusual movements by the military near military installations throughout man lost Even then, people didn't really think they would actually do a real coup. What did you hear from people when it became clear that it really was a co was quite a lot of despair. I think, especially for people of my parent's generation, so people the fifties and sixties and older, I think they just didn't expect it. You know, they worshiped essentially insensitivity all their lives, and I think they had a really difficult time really coming to terms that they hadn't won after all in 2015. I'd like you to explain that perspective because some Americans who follow events from Myanmar maybe only know Aung San Souci as a civilian leader who failed to condemn Genocide of Ranga in Myanmar. What was it that she has done over the last decades that made her someone that they would feel so strongly about? Sure, if you're just having a conversation here, and someone talks about a May your mother They're often talking about her. I grew up in the US, but our house is covered with pictures apparently had annual calendars that have her picture in it. Ah, lot of people breathing really admire her. They see her. Someone who wants she was young woman came back to me in life, despite the fact that she was living a perfectly lovely life in the U. K to take care of her ailing mother. And then stepped up when she could have left in order to fight for the Burmese people. And then decided instead of being with her family to stay in your more and you know people respect that. You're referring to the period after she won an earlier election in the 19 eighties, and it was not accepted by the military, which kept her In prison or in house arrest for many years. Yeah, for 15 years. She basically was in a position where the military said If you want to leave, you can leave. But if you want to be here, you won't be free. Other than climbing the pots and pans at eight o'clock each evening. What are people doing about the coup? There's been a lot of online organizing. There's a couple hashtags feeling around hash tag, civil disobedience movement as well as hashtag justice from you more But part of the civil disobedience movement is doctors and teachers, the majority of whom here work for government institutions essentially going on the strike doctors, especially since Cove, it Still providing medical care, but they just simply choosing not to do it. Government institutions. If I may, there could be some severe consequences for that. Yes, definitely. I don't think we're talking enough about this yet, but It's quite likely that we're going to see a spike in cold cases. What do you expect Ng over the next few days? I'm expecting just more of a reaction to the growing protest movement. There's been what seems to be Very clearly this information campaigns that are intended to kind of paralyzed people through fear and the lack of knowledge, But we're also starting to see more and more people going out into Streets to protest. Amen. Thon is a journalist who is in Yangon. Thank you. Okay.

"The Burmese relaxation for the control first of all testing is great we're working to scale up with county somewhere in moving faster than others we want more testing I wanted to be clear we have ten times much testing in Colorado than when this first began there needs to be a lot more it's the topic of the conversation I had with the vice president the other day it's important but even if you had all of the testing you wouldn't have the ability to follow up from a tracing perspective and a quarantine perspective on even a fraction of that even if you had that in place it still wouldn't be enough for these models you still meet you could have less social distancing right you could target number like fifty percent instead of sixty percent so that's when it gets here that's what it buys you and I don't want to underestimate out right I if we could be a fifty percent that might mean that Bhutan restaurants were open may first right if there's tests on me makes a big difference in livelihood and economy but that's the part that was used in the the modeling is showing that continued ramp in testing in isolation but at no point does that alone get you there that diseases to to widespread here right if you are in New Zealand or Taiwan they can get their their islands they control their borders you can get there with the testing in the isolation and and certainly in Taiwan they did in New Zealand have a fighting chance of and they may or may not contain it you cannot do that Colorado far too widespread open borders with the rest of our states people coming in and out every day so that is not something that is ever in the goal here at no point did we say we're gonna radically the virus from Colorado if that was the goal I can guarantee failure the goal is to make sure that as Colorado the kosher this difficult period people of sustainable way to live that we don't exceed the medical capacity of the state one more to so please we want to give them a fair chance it'll go to your phone can you president K. regarding shortages are casting supplies and everything that you think you'd be in Colorado was more so I I talked to the vice president of the president the sender center Bennett center Gardner we we we we talk to stand at the CDC FDA all all you know every every few days I've talked to vice president in person last couple days and on the phone today I asked about three different areas one is the general frustration around some of the instant testing the avid testing which the administration continues to tout a couple things about that first of all the advantage of that is it's a fifteen minute task that's absolutely wonderful right doesn't that that's great because it creates our ability to use it to screen employees at like senior centers as an example to limitations on it wanted generally believed to have a lower accuracy rate another testing just integrate that into how you use it but the bigger one is we simply have plenty.

"As they were released from the prison, Nick, just tell us about these extraordinary scenes. Your extraordinary scenes indeed. There was a huge scrub of journalists here to greet the two reporters as they came out. And of course, this is personal. This was one of their own two of their own to Burmese reporters detained for carrying out the act of journalism, many people feel because remember they wanna pull it surprise. One of the top journalistic accolades for the reporting of a massacre committed by the Burmese army offer hinge men in rack state and their investigation prompted something extraordinary prompted the military here to say, yes, we carried out these crimes, generally, they just do not do this. However, the reporters which held for seven years for breaking the official secrets act. They were condemned as traitors this morning, though, they walked sounds of the gates here. They walked to freedom, and I was talking to wallowed in that clip that you play just a moment ago. Alex and afterwards, I asked him look if one that's Pulitzer prize. Phil you're able to continue to be a journalist here. He looks at me, and he said. That's who I am. And he would not be giving up this trait that he loves so why have they been released now? Well, this is the work of the president's office here. So on sense. She is technically not the president is she state councillor. But she's in charge. She runs the show. She of course, the the Nobel peace prize winner who in the past two years is really fallen from grace in the is that the international community until this point. She has done nothing. Her administration has done nothing to either back support or do anything just free these. I think Alex what they will say. Or certainly what sources around them would say, look we've we've stood back. We've let this legal process takes place. And now we're in a position. Today. Whether that will put people who have really criticized don't doing anything to stand up for these forces. We'll have to see, but it comes as a third of a Burmese new year amnesty political prisoners. So that's technically why out, but the why the pitcher is eighteen months they've been in jail more reporters have been jailed. The activists being the so, you know, the might be great happiness joy this morning. But there is concerned when you look at the pitch thank you Nick be joining.

Don't go there. Literally, don't go there. But there are like natural cleaners just because they're natural natural is a weird thing. Anybody can say anything is natural. Now, I if you get down to more specific things something is certified organic, you have to go through a process as certification process to prove that the animal, you raise is certified is organic certified organic or that the food that you've grown plants that you grow the catnip you grow. It hasn't been exposed to pesticides or poisons or things like that. But when you get to natural if it has a small percentage of something that's natural. They can call it natural. Yeah. So it means as safe natural ingredient. And it doesn't mean that there are aren't other in. Ingredients that are not natural. And that are not say so cleaning products contain something called caddy on it detergent. They may have it may have citrus in it may be perfectly safe for people. Doesn't mean it's perfectly safe for cats and another thing just because it's perfectly safe for dogs. Doesn't mean it's safer cats because that's something. That's something really dangerous about the cat the topical anti-flea once a month liquid that you put on the back of a dog's neck, you cannot use the formula. That's meant for dogs on cats. Your cat will die within hours. It's terrible. And it's not always clear. So I wanna ask you about that specifically because even when I buy the stuff for cats the expensive stuff because I'm so afraid of the cheap stuff because there's all this online about how even that is. No good. I always wished I could you know, my chickens, I sprinkled die today earth on them. Wear a mask and goggles. I sprinkle it on. And it gets rid of all they're fleas and stuff. And I often think we'll isn't there something like that for the cats. Besides toxic stuff that they hate diatomaceous earth is fabulous. It's a I'm a member of a group called born can't see and we recommend that for people who adopt are fearful cats to for pest control. And, but you know, you do have to be careful that the cat put the diet nations earth in the bedding. And you know, they'll we'll go around you can even beat it to them for internal parasites. But as you said, you have to be very careful, you do not breathe it do not get it in your eyes. It's very sharp and those particles can damage your lungs and your cats lung, so make sure it's not airborne. You can put it on your couch. You can put it on your carpet. And how does it get airborne? Then I mean when the dog jumps on the couch and goes poof and everything comes in the air when I Pat my cat how. Is it not going to just kinda get in my eyes or getting my children's mouths author? Now, I don't know how serious that would be. I would think that just a small exposure to it like that for just a second would probably not be that big a deal. However, you know, if you're applying to your yard, or if you're putting it in your carpet, you know, spreading it around. It's going to be airborne. You don't want to you. Don't want to have a long exposure. So what else can we use instead of buying things for our cats? Wow. Like, I have a whole list for dogs. But don't really have a big list for cats grow my own catnip. I noticed they love all my herbs if I want to attract them to the garden all I have to do is plant, lavender or peppermint, and they're in their catnip. If I want to detract, I've been want to get them out of the garden. I used sharp services and rocks and citrus smelling things. So depending on which you know, where I want them and stuff, but I often wish I had a whole list of things I could use on cats the way, I can't on dogs like, for example, if the dog has a has a hotspot, I know how to treat it with stuff from my kitchen, cupboard, exactly but cats because their skin is so much more sensitive and their internal structure their livers.

And it really I mean, I began to see things in a way I had never before I began to see my own mind in ways that I didn't even think was possible before and along with teaching the basic insight meditation practices. The also taught us love, and kindness and the combination we it was ten days. The first course and that combination for me was. I just felt so much more at home on the planet. When I finish that first course, I just felt like it was you know, it was right to be here. And I could I didn't know what I was going to do next. But I felt a kind of radical self confidence about the rightness of being alive that was that. And then that's a great phrase. I never use before.

And but but that was a time when many people were exploring psychedelics, and we're. Confused. There was no there was no real guidance. So he also in some of the same way that I went to Asia looking for he he had taken he and timid taken so many psychedelics, and there was always this. Although they, you know, learn so much from it. There was always this kind of going up and coming down aspect, and I thought there's gonna be a way in which we can incorporate this into our being and just be that person without always taking drugs. So Ramdas went to India. And there he met this is his trip his first trip and I met him on a second..

We were told they might be transported abroad. However, everything was too late. And they died. Do you? Remember the first time you heard the news.
