Many people are forced to live in displacement in Myanmar because of the military violence in Myanmar after the coup. Many Myanmar people in Japan are faced difficulties to return home, they are forced to suffer discrimination and prejudice in Japan. ATTU continues to provide small, face-to-face support.
After the coup, 1st of Feb. 2021, we heard the reports of protesting against the military coup and demanding democracy through a civil disobedience movement(CDM). Nowthere were fewer reports about Myanmar in Japan, and people's interest.
Japan has invested in numerous development projects in Myanmar, which has even been called the "Last Frontier of Asia".
Japan and Myanmar are connected by a 'strong pipeline', and it could be said that the Japanese Government has taken a lax attitude towards the repression of its citizens, as it has been negotiating with the Myanmar Military Council sinceafter the coup d'état.
