Why is #Feb15Coup trending- more on the Myanmar situation

The February 1 military coup in Myanmar and the arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi, elected State Councillor and others have sparked the biggest protests in Myanmar in more than a decade. Myanmar’s military leaders have extended their detention of Suu Kyi, whose remand was set to expire on Monday, until February 17, according to her lawyer Khin Maung Zaw, reported AP.

#Feb15Coup is currently trending on Twitter, with tweets from citizens of Myanmar, activist groups and other human rights group speculating about China’s new operation, and whether they are to support and further help the Myanmar Junta.

As reported by Reuters, Hundreds of protesters opposed to Myanmar’s coup demonstrated at the Chinese embassy in Yangon on Thursday accusing Beijing of supporting the military junta despite Chinese denials.

These tweets presumably come after late on Wednesday, the Chinese Embassy posted a statement on Facebook dismissing reports on the internet of Chinese planes bringing in technical personnel, and said the only flights were regular cargo flights importing and exporting goods such as seafood.

The embassy’s Facebook page was inaccessible on Thursday.
