1. H.Res. 134 – Condemning the military coup that took place on February 1, 2021, in Burma and the Burmese military detention of civilian leaders, calling for the release of all those detained and for those elected to serve in Parliament to resume their duties, and for other purposes (Rep. Levin (MI) – Foreign Affairs)
This resolution condemns the military coup and calls on the Tatmadaw to release those arbitrarily detained and restore the democratically elected government. It also calls on the administration to take action to hold the Burmese military accountable, including through targeted, multilateral economic sanctions, and ensure that U.S. based social media companies not allow their platforms to be used as vehicles for disinformation campaigns or advocating violence against the Burmese people.
