Hey guys. Need a favor.
The security services of the Maldives, the Maldives Police Service (MPS) and The Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF), has increasing started showing an inhumane brutal side since the coup on the 7th February 2012. Their brutality makes us believe the country is currently in the throes of a a military dictatorship.
This YouTube playlist that I am trying to compile aims to bring document and bring together different instances of police brutality (especially since the 7th February coup – but not necessarily) towards unarmed citizens of the Maldives to a global audience in a single place, – in a Public YouTube Playlist.
The link for the playlist is here;
If you got a YouTube video (doesn’t matter if it’s your own or somebody else’s video) that you think should be in this playlist, just provide the link in the comments section in this post and I’ll do the rest.
We have to do everything we can to make the whole world aware of what’s going on in the Maldives. We all have to play our own little part.
Some points to think about and to be inspired;
