In Burma, police fired water cannons on peaceful protesters in Rangoon as mass demonstrations continued today for the third straight day, opposing the military coup that deposed de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi one week ago.
Protester: “We can’t just let the military win. Citizens have already shown their demands by voting. We are on the street to show that we are against military dictatorship.”
Authorities shut down the internet for part of the weekend as fears mount of a harsh military crackdown on protesters.
