The military junta that overthrew Myanmar's government has blocked access to Facebook. It issued a statement saying Facebook would be halted in order to maintain "stability". The majority of people in Myanmar use the social media giant. The junta sees it as a threat. A civil disobedience page has started on Facebook that has over 200,000 followers. Human Rights Watch Asia said the junta sees Facebook as its Internet nemesis.

The junta seized power and declared a yearlong state of emergency. It alleges voter fraud in November's national election. The coup took place after tension between the military and the government. It arrested Aung San Suu Kyi, who is being held in detention at an undisclosed location. The military also arrested former president Win Myint. They charged him with violating coronavirus measures.
