On February 1, 2021, the military instigated a coup of the democratically elected government. In short order, this relatively new democracy went from aspirational to regressive. Protests started immediately and have only grown over the past month. In this episode, we speak with an American who has lived in Myanmar since 2016. She has a close connection to New Hampshire, having served as an AmeriCorps member several years back. We speak with her about her experiences living in the country during an overthrow of a government and what the reality on the ground is. This inside view provides unique insights and perspectives to the realities of the situation and the dangers it poses within the country and around the world.
