Myanmar’s elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other officials were recently detained by the military following a coup.

“As we support the people of Myanmar, we call on the international community to take a stand against this military coup and have immediate actions to protect and safeguard the people of Myanmar and all democratic processes in Myanmar. An attack to the people of Myanmar is an attack to all democratic institutions,” the group added.
