Myanmar coup: Protester collapses after being hit with water cannon jet
Protesters in Myanmar were blasted with a suspected chemical-laced water cannon today as massive crowds staged a third straight day of rallies to voice their anger at last week’s military coup.
Huge crowds gathered in Yangon on Monday as workers went on a nationwide strike to demand the return of democracy and the release of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi. And in the capital Naypyidaw, footage showed two people collapsing after being sprayed with the suspected chemical-tinged water which was fired from a truck to disperse protesters.
‘Down with military dictatorship’ and ‘Release Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and arrested people,’ the protesters chanted as they marched in the streets, with others holding signs saying ‘we want democracy’ and riding on the back of trucks singing revolutionary songs.
