    Myanmar Junta Drops Plan to Place Buddhist Monks on Military Roadblocks | Buddhistdoor

    The efforts by the Myanmar military dictatorship to bolster support for their rule by recruiting buddhist monks to man military checkpoints and and to discourage pro-democracy protests. has been abandoned in the face of opposition from the monastic sangha, local media sources report.


    A coup d'état in Myanmar began on the morning of 1 February 2021, when democratically elected members of the country's ruling party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), were deposed by the Tatmadaw—Myanmar's military—which then vested power in a stratocracy.
