On 1 February the military staged a coup d’état in Myanmar. The result was the arrest of elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and members of the National League for Democracy (NDL), which had won the election by a large majority.

The Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation, in collaboration with Burma Campaign UK, is promoting a social media campaign to raise awareness of the current situation in the country and support local artists.
Some of its members have drawn themselves doing the three-fingered salute in protest.
The three-finger gesture is inspired by the three-finger salute of the inhabitants of Panem society as a form of rebellion against an authoritarian government in the “The Hunger Games” universe.
