Ant- coup hackers target Myanmar government sites as protesters jam Yangon roads | Less than a week later, pro-democracy protests broke out in Yangon, the country's largest city
UN cautions warriors arrangement could prompt circumstance spiraling wild. Myanmar's enemy of upset dissidents got back to the roads in power on Wednesday, arranging the greatest exhibits since troops fanned out around the nation to subdue resistance to the new military junta.
A significant part of the nation has been in open revolt since the military dismissed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi's administration toward the beginning of the month and charged her under a dark import law.
Many thousands mobilized in Yangon, some barring streets with vehicles to prevent security powers from moving around the country's greatest city. Police and officers were spotted almost a key dissent intersection yet had all the earmarks of being waiting, looking on as demonstrators spilled past.
The anti-coup Myanmar's have been carrying out demonstrations in Taiwan also. The tiny island nation has a significant Chinese-Burmese community, which rallied around to show its support to their leader Suu Kyi. A few hundred people protested in Taipei streets in solidarity with Suu Kyi, who had recently won elections in a landslide victory. Many of the Myanmar's in Taiwan had earlier escaped military repression and find it important to express their support for democracy.
The Myanmar's diaspora, which is spread out in neighboring countries like India, Thailand and Indonesia is also venting out its anger against the military regime for upstaging the fledgling democracy. Many of these people are activists who had earlier fled Myanmar, while others include monks and students. Pro-democracy protestors are dressing up in red -- the color of Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party -- and carry her photographs. They have also begun to use the three-finger salute -- a mark of resistance, made famous by Suzanne Collins in her books for teen readers.
The cyber attacks came a day after tens of thousands of people rallied across the country to protest against the generals toppling Aung San Suu Kyi's civilian government earlier this month. A group called Myanmar Hackers disrupted websites including the Central Bank, the Myanmar military's propaganda page, state-run broadcaster MRTV, the Port Authority, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Hundreds of students and teachers took to Myanmar’s streets on Friday to demand the military hand power back to elected politicians, as resistance to a coup swelled with demonstrations in several parts of the country, even in the tightly controlled capital.
In the largest rallies since the takeover, protesters at two universities in Yangon flashed a three-fingered salute, a sign of resistance borrowed from “The Hunger Games” movies, that they adopted from anti-government protesters in neighboring Thailand. They chanted “Long live Mother Suu” — a reference to ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been detained — and “We don’t want military dictatorship.”
“We will never be together with them,” lecturer Dr. Nwe Thazin said of the military at a protest at the Yangon University of Education. “We want that kind of government to collapse as soon as possible.”
But social media platforms had been flooded with calls for a show of force by protesters in the hours before the junta imposed a third consecutive overnight Internet blackout.
By noon, there were anti-coup demonstrations across Myanmar, from the remote highland region of Chin State to a small town in the Irrawaddy delta where parading protesters hoisted Suu Kyi posters.
Right outside the administrative capital Naypyidaw, tens of thousands of people from different sectors — including engineers, doctors and teachers — marched through the logging town of Pyinmana carrying signs saying “Help Myanmar”, breaking news published by - The Beyond News
