7. People are calling for a boycott of Ngwe Taung restaurant in Yangon’s South Okkalapa Township

On January 21, the two comrades from a youth urban guerrilla group were apprehended by the staff of Ngwe Taung Restaurant when they were on their way back from an operation at the South Okkalapa Township ward administration office, which is located next to Ngwe Taung Restaurant. One of the two comrades managed to escape, but the other, Comrade Chocolate (aka Thar Din), was beaten to death by the restaurant staff, according to an anonymous witness. Therefore, Myanmar citizens at home and abroad have called for a boycott of Ngwe Taung restaurant.

“They did not come to destroy the interests in their restaurant, but they beat them up. The restaurant must be related to the military junta; that’s why they arrested the comrades. We request the public not to buy or eat from this restaurant,” said a resident in Yangon.

It is also said that Ngwe Taung restaurant was the same one that provided drinks and refreshments to military council forces during the early 2021 protests.

After the incident in which a comrade was arrested and beaten to death, several Yangon guerrilla groups issued a number of statements condemning and warning Ngwe Taung restaurant.
