With more than 2,500 people arrested and, according to some estimates, at least 250 killed, the crackdown by Myanmar’s military on pro-democracy protesters is showing no signs of abating. In this episode of UpFront we ask the international envoy for Myanmar’s overthrown civilian government, Dr Sasa - who is in hiding after being charged with treason by the military junta - what is next for Myanmar and whether he would support an armed resistance.

In a special interview, we speak with renowned novelist and women’s rights advocate Elif Shafak about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention at a time when femicide is on the rise.

And in the Reality Check, UpFront producer Ashish Malhotra takes a look at how the United States’s prison industrial complex targets vulnerable populations and what criminal justice alternatives can look like.
