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.
