Myanmar nationals protest arrest, torture
Around 100 Myanmar nationals residing in Bangladesh staged a demonstration near the Myanmar Embassy yesterday protesting “killings” and arrests of monks, students and innocent people in Myanmar by the military junta.
The demonstration coincided with international day of support for freedom in Myanmar.
The protesters carried placards and banners and chanted slogans against the military junta amid tight police security.
Scores of police were posted in and around the embassy to maintain peace during the protest.
The 15-minute demonstration was organised under the banner of Rakhaing Sangha Union (RSU).
The demonstrators blamed the Myanmar junta for repercussions for their ruthless tortures and killings.
They also condemned the killing of journalists who were covering the street protests and collecting news about demonstrations in Yangon.
The protesters also urged the Chinese government to stand by the oppressed Myanmar people changing their previous stand of propping up the ruling junta.
RSU President Uthiha submitted a memorandum to the Myanmar Embassy.
