Description: Myanmar is becoming a completely failed state. With the economy decreasing so rapidly, the GDP cannot even be accurately measured. We, the people of Myanmar, are losing our human rights. We are losing our freedom and our safety because of the military junta. However, we, Myanmar citizens, have not given up. Along with the National Unity Government, with armed ethnic groups, and with other ethnic organizations, we are still fighting to get our freedom back, and we will build our nation back again. With this presentation we want to raise awareness about the true situation in our country.
