Protesters in Myanmar on Monday has started to clap together in protest against junta that has been holding the country by the jugular with which about 564 people have been killed.
TOS News learnt that clapping began in various parts of the main city Yangon at 5 p.m. in response to a call by protest organisers.
Despite the killing of at least 564 people by the security forces since the coup, protesters have been coming out every day, defying the junta, often in small groups in small towns, to voice opposition to the overthrow of an elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi.
The protest which some have been calling a “spring revolution”, has included street marches, a civil disobedience campaign of strikes and quirky acts of rebellion organised via social media.
Also on Monday, one person was killed in the central Sagaing region when security forces broke up a protest.
Earlier, demonstrators with placards of Suu Kyi and signs calling for international intervention marched through the second-biggest city Mandalay.
The coup has been getting sanction from the international communities since last week
