“However, the demonstrations have destabilized Myanmar, as they occurred on a daily basis. We are monitoring the situation to ensure that Indonesian nationals in Myanmar are safe and accounted for.”

A retweet of Human Rights Watch Deputy Director for Asia Phil Robertson’s tweet of the protests by Myanmar-based Twitter user Hnin Zaw conveyed the extent of the protests before the Indonesian Embassy.

“’We don’t need another election!!’,” the image proclaimed, along with the hashtag #respectourvotes.

Faizasyah also reiterated Indonesia’s wish “to find a peaceful solution to the Myanmar [crisis], namely a democratically inclusive political process that involves the conflicting parties," he said.

Myanmar’s military forces, the Tatmadaw, carried out the February 1 coup, four months after they lost to Aung San Suu Kyi's NLD [National League for Democracy] party in elections last November. They also arrested Suu Kyi and other NLD members. 

They rejected the results of the elections on grounds that they were rigged, and promised to hold new elections at an unspecified date. The military forces already killed three protesters in the unrest, which occurred on a daily basis since the military coup occurred.
