National Unity Government calls on all citizens to ‘revolt against the rule of the military terrorists’ in every corner of the country.
Myanmar’s shadow government has declared a “people’s defensive war” against the country’s military, which seized power in a coup on February 1.
Duwa Lashi La, president of the National Unity Government, made the announcement in a video posted to Facebook on Tuesday.
“With the responsibility to protect the life and properties of the people, the National Unity Government … launched a people’s defensive war against the military junta,” he said.
“As this is a public revolution, all the citizens within entire Myanmar, revolt against the rule of the military terrorists led by Min Aung Hlaing in every corner of the country.”
