Mass protests began in Yangon and the red ribbons and 3 finger salute begin to emerge

Mass protests begin



In the period following the military’s takeover, peaceful protests erupted on the streets throughout Myanmar – the largest and loudest in Yangon, the heart of dissent. For just over a week, protesters marched the streets chanting pro-democratic slogans, holding sit-ins and painting murals on the streets (which are still visible from space).

The three-fingered salute became a sign of the protest.
