Security in Yangon has been tightened by the military council these days, and the military and police are patrolling almost full-time day and night with military vehicles. Last July 22, the Military Council tightened security after public criticism of the execution of four people, including U Jimmy and U Phyo Zoya Thaw, by hanging. Soldiers in military green double cabs in full military uniforms sat in ready positions, and one of them placed a gun on the roof of the car with his heel and was aiming to shoot at the front of the car. I have seen these things in the past, but I feel insecure. A few days ago, a young man was shot and arrested by the river and put in a military vehicle.
The underground revolutionary forces and strike forces in Yangon have also issued statements that they will counter-revolutionize the military council by any means possible. Insein prison alone has been attacked twice these days, and there have been casualties among the rebels. It is known that after the hanging in Insein prison, there was unrest and some prisoners were killed by the military.
