After two days of arduous negotiations on Thursday (1st), the UN Security Council finally reached an agreement on “strongly condemning” the Myanmar military’s violent actions against civilians.

Agence France-Presse reported that a statement initiated by the former colonial government of Burma, the United Kingdom, said: “Members of the Security Council are deeply concerned about the rapidly deteriorating situation in Burma, and strongly condemn the Burmese military’s use of violence against peaceful demonstrators, which has led to several reports. Hundreds of civilians including women and children died.”

The Myanmar Political Prisoners’ Rights Protection Organization (AAPP) said that so far at least 538 civilians have died in anti-coup demonstrations; March 27 was the bloodiest day, when 141 people were killed in the Myanmar military’s violent crackdown.
