AsiaVigorous protests against military coup in Myanmar

Thousands of protesters shouted slogans against the current military coup in Myanmar saying “We don’t want a military dictatorship, we want democracy.”

Nay Pyi Taw: Thousands of people nationwide protested on Sunday against the recent military coup in Myanmar and for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi, the country’s top leader.

Thousands of protesters sloganeered saying, “We do not want military dictatorship, we want democracy.” However, the military officers involved in the coup have not yet made any comment.

Earlier, Myanmar military rulers had shut down Internet service on Saturday after thousands of people participated in anti-coup demonstrations in the country, which was restored on Sunday.

The military immediately shut down Internet services after blocking social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram to prevent people from opposing the coup.

The social media platform Facebook was blocked on Friday. Many users have ignored restrictions on social media using virtual private networks (VPNs), but the ban is generally showing its effect.

According to the report, the mob in Yangon city continued to chant “down-down military dictatorship” and “long-lived democracy”. However, a large number of police have been deployed to deal with the protesters and all major routes in the city have been closed.
