Date: April 20, 2021, 10:30-11:30 am

Join us on The Public Good! Our next guests are Burmese Community members Win Min Thant and Ya Mi Lin. They will discuss the Military Coup that took place in Myanmar/Burma on February 1st, 2021. Join us for this very emotional discussion of why the coup took place, who was responsible, and how the coup affects us here in Western New York. Our guests discuss the crowd demonstrating at Bidwell Parkway and how Buffalo’s designation as a resettlement city relates to the military coup. We also talk about military oppression against the Rohingya people and how it parallels police brutality against Black people in the United States.
