HEROES vs. VILLAINS of MYANMAR

ARUNA is honored to highlight the project "Heroes vs. Villains of Myanmar" comics series commemorating the heroes and condemning the villains of Myanmar's ongoing Spring Revolution. On February 1, 2021, Myanmar military has staged a coup and committed violence against activists, politicians, journalists, and civilians. Since then, Myanmar people have been fighting against the unfair justice and for the democratic future of their country. Some of them have paid with their lives for the revolution. As of April 18, 2021, in two months since the coup, the junta has killed 737 people, detained and arrested 3229 people, and issued warrants for 930 people.

A collective of artists in Myanmar and in the diaspora have contributed their time and talents in creating these comic series to remember, educate about, and participate in various forms of activism against the military coup in Myanmar. You can read the project description below and follow @heroesvsvilliansmyanmar on Instagram.

In every country, revolutions are driven by two sides. On one side, there are individuals who are inspired by dreams and hope to create a better society. On the other side, there are people who take advantage of their countries for their own good.Our native country, Myanmar, also has a political history filled with revolutions. With this new project, we aim to highlight the participants of these revolutions - heroes who are striving for the benefits of Myanmar and villains who are working for their own benefits. Our goal is to create one comic strip per week alternating between heroes and villains. We truly hope that these comics will raise the much needed international awareness of the current injustice happening in Myanmar.
