"And mark today, defiance, hundreds of Mourners chanted slogans and also paid their respects. Toe a 19 year old woman known as Angel. Yesterday she was shot in the head and killed in Myanmar's second largest city, Mandalay. Angel was wearing a shirt that read. Everything will be okay. Ah, photo taken just before she was killed is widely making the rounds online in all security forces killed at least 38 people nationwide yesterday, the bloodiest single day since Myanmar's coup began one month ago. As the situation worsens in Myanmar pressure is mounting on Washington to do something to stop the violent crackdown. Dan Slater directs the wiser Center for emerging democracies at the University of Michigan. And he joins me now from Ann Arbor. Dan bring us up to speed on events in Myanmar this week. What happened in Mandalay yesterday? So I'm not on the ground in Mandalay, obviously, but basically the way this has been going is that the police and military seemed to be especially repressive in Mandalay. That's where some of the worst confrontations have been happening. How widespread are the protests against this military coup on their nationwide? Their enormous You can see the pictures from the major cities. They're also they're all around the country. This is not the kind of protest movement which split the country and where you see a big part of the population that backs the government and a big part that doesn't know like we saw in Egypt. In Thailand, for instance, This is really one where the people of Myanmar came out and they voted. They voted in droves for the National League Democracy Political party. Those elections have been thrown in the waste bin And you're seeing the response to the protests reach across generations. I mean, do you have you know 15 60 year olds out there as well as 20 year old you, Sergio. I think it gets completely cross cutting. And, as is often the case with these things, it's certainly the youth are playing the leading role. But it's this certainly not simply the grudges of the young. This is something where you know the country was under military rule. For 50 years, they've had 10 years to Have more civilian imprint of politics. And, you know, as I said, the plug has been pulled and you know the people of Myanmar just not going back to the status quo ante anytime soon. Now this crisis and Myanmar if it's an early one that the Biden administration has to kind of respond to. And how has it responded? Well, it responded, You know, certainly I think very clearly in rhetorical terms in terms of not accepting what the military is done demanding a reversal of the of the coup and you know, I think they've been, you know, they've been steadfast. And trying to lead the way with United Nations and in terms of international partners in making sure that they're united in national front against this kind of power grab. They also have imposed sanctions on some Myanmar military, haven't I? Yes, that's right. What's the direct impact of those Also, literally? There's things like when reports arms embargoes. These were things like freezing the assets of leading figures within the military. It's things like cutting off investments toward military linked businesses, which are very prominent in Myanmar. So the idea is here. It is tried not to go back to the old world of sanctions where the whole country was sort of punished for the sins of the military. And try to do that, in a much more focused laser like way just to effect the fortunes of those who are most directly responsible for the coup. What else do you think the body administration needs to do? I think the main thing is to try to keep the focus on international solidarity. Know one good thing at the moment is that there's really nobody. No major power in the world that wants to see this coup happen or that wants to see it succeed. This isn't in China's interest is not in the interest of the regional organization, Ozzie on in Southeast Asia, and so I think the United States can really work with, you know other countries in trying to keep A united front and I think, really keeping the focus on not just democracy but return to stability. And Slater is a professor of political science at the University of Michigan. He's been updating us on events in Myanmar and the foreign policy response by the Biden administration.
