- Military’s efforts to end protests will become increasingly violent as rallies and civil disobedience campaign continue in coming months
- Use of rubber bullets and live fire by security forces will increase, raising security risks around protest sites
- Western nations will respond to violence with further sanctions, while companies will face growing pressure to end partnerships with military-linked firms
At least 38 people were killed by security forces at pro-democracy protests on 3 March, according to the UN, in the most violent day since demonstrations against the military’s takeover began last month.
