Myanmar’s ‘unprofessional’ military on February 1 had staged a coup and seized power of the Country by overthrowing the democratically elected civilian government.

Since then the Myanmar military have been engaged in a brutal crackdown against its own civilians, whom they were supposed to protect, for staging anti-coup protests.

Over 600 people in Myanmar have lost their lives till date in the brutal crackdown by the country’s ‘unprofessional’ military.

However, braving bullets and even mortar shelling by the ‘unprofessional’ Myanmar military, people in large numbers, on a daily basis, continue to hit the streets across the country, demonstrating against the military dictatorship.

On Friday too, people in large numbers across Myanmar staged anti-coup protests.

Anti-coup rallies were taken out in Sagaing Region’s Kalay, where protesters took to the streets on Friday to demonstrate defying the coup regime.

The #MarchingShoesStrike campaign continued at Taunggyi in Myanmar’s Shan State on Friday.

The motto of the campaign is: “With every step, a flower blooms.”

The initiative was launched across Myanmar on Thursday in memory of the fallen protesters and symbolising steps forward in the revolution.
