Myanmar junta blocks internet access as coup protests expand

I’m seeing this reflected in FB feeds gone dark. A few days ago they attempted to cut Facebook access but citizens found a quick workaround with VPN solutions. So now the regime is completely pulling the plug. Phone access may also be cut.

They did it from 1962 - 1988.
