Actions For The International Community
The Impact of the Myanmar coup on Women, Youth, and Children - Key Takeaways
1. Recognition of the NUG
Recognising the National Unity Government as the legitimate interim government will enable better communication and official assistance.
2. Deny the Myanmar military legitimacy
The Myanmar military administration is unconstitutional, illegal and illegitimate.
We must stop engaging with them, and refuse to buy into their narrative of fake elections in 2023
3. Humanitarian Aid
Provide essential cross-border humanitarian aid, and avoid funneling aid through Yangon or Nay Pyi Daw, as this will fall into the military’s hands.
4. Technical Assistance
Invest in the new generation of young people who are driving the pro-democracy movement, in capacity building, knowledge, student visas and scholarships.
