Hundreds of thousands of people across the country are taking part in the general strike and protests

Hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Myanmar’s major cities. They are protesting against the military coup that took place on February 1 and the killings of demonstrators. Street protests are part of a general strike that has engulfed the country.

The military junta, led by General Min Aung Khlain, warns that protesters have chosen a dangerous path and that their actions could lead to casualties.

Earlier, on February 19, the first victim of the protests died – a 20-year-old girl Mya Thwe Thwe Hain, who was injured during protests in the capital Naypyidau a few days earlier. On February 20, at least two people were killed in clashes with police in the country’s second largest city, Mandalay.

“Coordinators of the protests are pushing people to a confrontation in which they will die,” – said in the news of the leading state TV channel MRTV. The junta-controlled media are urging citizens to refrain from rioting and anarchy.
