The Myanmar coup: Everything you need to know (UN Special Rapporteur Tom Andrews) E986

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar. He discusses the background behind the military coup against State Counsellor of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi, the political history of modern Myanmar, how the status quo before the coup was not democratic and involved much tension between the civilian government and military, how China will be key in solving the Myanmar crisis, arms sales to the country, and much more! Finally, we speak to legendary rock photographer Mick Rock, known as ‘The Man Who Shot The 70s’ for his iconic photographs of Lou Reed, David Bowie and Iggy Pop. He discusses his new collaborative images, titled Midaro, his stellar career photographing some of the most iconic rockstars of all time, and much more!

We contacted H&M about the allegations in this broadcast, they got back to us saying:"Thanks for reaching out. We have no comment to add at this time."
