Starboard’s 650,000 mangrove trees are growing in Myanmar, a country that is currently going through huge turmoil and unrest. In today’s article for World Environment Day, we are sharing with you some information about what is happening to the people of Myanmar. Furthermore, we are sharing information on how we can all support their life and livelihoods through signing petitions and making donations.

For many years communities in Myanmar have been making huge efforts to plant and take care of the mangroves planted for many companies. However, right now, Myanmar needs our support.

Currently, there are huge violations of human rights stemming from the November 8th elections within Myanmar. During these elections Myanmar’s civilian society won with 83% of the votes, these results were refused by the military who argue that they were fraudulent.

What Is Happening In Myanmar?

In February 2021 things in Myanmar took a turn for the worse and cases of violence against unarmed protesters and general members of the public rose sharply. This violence has included beatings and shootings to kill.

Meanwhile, internet and phone lines are being restricted, and night raids are creating fear amongst the population. Additionally, people are having to move away from their homes in search of safety. Moreover, local communities are straining to meet their basic needs leading to huge waves of displacement amongst so many people. The New York Times explains more about the Coup.
