Mandalay Orthopedic Hospital staff launch red ribbon campaign against military coup

Around 100 staff from Mandalay Orthopedic Hospital including doctors and nurses launched a “red ribbon campaign” in protest against the military coup at about 9 am today.    

The doctors were photographed holding a vinyl placard reading “We oppose the military’s takeover of power from the people’s government”.  

“Our campaign today is to protest the military’s forcible takeover of power from the Daw Aung San Suu Kyi-led government democratically elected by our people by making best use of their weapons. But we have compassion for the patients. Some of us will remain here. Today, the operation theatre will be closed. We have no out-patients. All work has stopped,” said a doctor who participated in the campaign. 

Currently at the hospital, some staff still want to continue to work while some will not be working any more. They said they would extend their campaign and make demands.
