Real Stories from Myanmar
Visual Rebellion is a collective for Myanmar journalists, photographers, filmmakers, and artists to publish their productions in the aftermath of the February 1st, 2021 coup d’État in Nay Pyi Daw.
The creative and media communities are particularly persecuted and have been forced underground to avoid arrest. We believe that free thought and expression are powerful weapons against the submission and oppression the military regime is trying to impose on people.
As wars on information and ideology are raging in the country, our aim is to provide young creators with the necessary resources to keep producing high-value verified content on what is happening in Myanmar. We partner with international organizations and media outlets to fund and spread their work. We also offer diverse ways that you can support the project.
DAYS Since COUP started
The situation in Myanmar makes it very difficult to collect accurate information on arrests and killings. We use the figures from the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners Burma (AAPP) because they independently verify each case.
