Yangon: Protesters took to the streets across Myanmar again on Saturday, condemning the junta, which has tried to quell the uprising with a campaign of violence and fear.
The country has been in turmoil since the ouster of civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was ousted by the military during a February 1 uprising, prompting a nationwide uprising when protesters demanded the return of democracy.
According to a local monitoring group, more than 230 people have been killed so far in the unrest, as security forces have deployed tear gas, rubber bullets and live rounds against protesters.
But the movement has moved forward – in very small numbers.
Local media showed protesters at a gas mask rally in the northern Shan state, while in the southern coastal city of Daoi, motorists held Sochi posters and signs reading “End Dictatorship.”
