Myanmar: Shadow government launches “people’s defensive war” against junta

Source: CNN

“Myanmar’s shadow government has launched what it called a ‘people’s defensive war’ against the military junta, urging citizens across the country to revolt. In a video address posted on his official Facebook page on Tuesday, acting president of the National Unity Government (NUG) Duwa Lashi La called on militias and ethnic armed organizations to attack military forces. … The NUG is a group of ousted lawmakers, opponents of the coup and representatives of ethnic minority groups that seeks to gain recognition as the legitimate government of Myanmar. It operates undercover or through members based abroad.” (09/07/21)
