The Facebook company toppled the page of the state TV Myanmar the day after the warning to the protesters against the military junta not to take to the streets was published on that television, because “the confrontation could be life-threatening”.

“In line with our global business, we have taken down the MRTV and MRTV Live pages due to the frequent violations of our standards, which include those on the use of violence and incitement to violence,” Facebook said.
This happened only a day after the same company deleted the page of the Myanmar army from its social network, also due to, as they explained, “constant changes in community standards that prohibit incitement to violence and create harm,” Reuters reported.
Recall, in Myanmar, tensions escalated earlier this month, after the election, when an army spokesman refused to rule out the possibility of a coup, just days before a new parliament was convened.
He warned that the armed forces could take action if their complaints pointing to the election theft are not considered, and then the army declared a state of emergency for a year.
Shortly afterwards, citizens staged protests against the military, and then the military junta shut down the internet and social networks throughout the country, yet this did not last long.
As Reuters reported, military threats and fear of a military coup overshadowed the planned start of parliament after the elections. Myanmar was ruled by the army for 49 years, after the 1962 coup.
