I have mixed feelings about what is happening in Myanmar. On one hand, I have worked with students from there and visited briefly once for work; I have found them to be lovely people.
On the other hand, I was saddened when the Rohingya were pushed out and Aung San Suu Kyi said nothing publicly (she is reputedly Islamophobic). My students chose then not to comment about it on Facebook. Now those same students are suddenly political when the same military comes for their freedoms. I don’t know what to think really, so mostly I’m silent on this one (also nobody in my life these days who could find the country on a map).
Dark times for democracy
