Pro-Democracy Protesters Set Fire to Military Uniform in Myanmar City of Yangon
Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Myanmar, chanting, releasing colorful smoke and even setting a military uniform on fire. They shouted “What do we want? Democracy!” and “For the people!” as they paraded through Myanmar’s largest city, Yangon. It’s one of the largest protests in recent weeks in the southeast Asian country. It comes five months after a Feb. 1 military coup ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi.
