Myanmar forces fire rubber bullets, warning shots at protesters

Police in Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw fired gunshots into the air on Tuesday to disperse demonstrations against the military, witnesses said, as protesters defied bans on gatherings amid nationwide outrage at last week’s coup.
One witness said demonstrators were running away as weapons were fired into the air, but not in the direction of the crowd.
Police initially used water cannon and tried to push a large crowd back, but demonstrators responded with projectiles. Footage on social media showed people running with the sound of gunshots in the distance.

  1. God bless Myanmar’s people. Hope some military units understand about their country’s future then helping their people against the Dictators Leaders.

  2. The UNITED NATION must help Myanmar to bring democracy in the country. This country been oppresses by a military ruler for 50 to 60 decade already. Myanmar military kill people who go against the military ruler.. This is the best timing America must imvade Myanmar to changes the the lives of every Myanmar citizen.

  3. What on earth takes democracy away by force just by force !!! Why not if people have guns like armies we can clear all those military people but this is life so why not Burmese army chief gets into the process of humanitarian ground … I wish the un sent it's security council into these type of country to seetle their democracy as it's one of the most leading life saving policy in this world …. Abolish the people of arms and killls …. We want peace for all people

  4. Do what the people want simple. Some world leaders remains the problem of this world. And U.N is very domant on issues like this, maybe they want people to die more. Very sad. U.N should be taking farst action against any bad government oppressing masses.

  5. They are shooting with real bullets now.I wonder what it would take for the UN to get involved.Should our country still be a member of the UN after their ignorance and lack of care for the countries.

  6. Asian and European countries who want to know the historical origin of their country should learn the history of ancient Vietnam and ancient Greece, they will know their first king. The planar geometry on the bronze drum in the 7th century BC is found in many Asian countries. The Hmong people used the ancient Greek language as clues to find out the 5000-year history of the countries. Find out the historical origin, people will decode the ancestral secret book that you left behind, how to make the world peaceful. Vietnamese History Lac Long Quan and the Hung Kings until 2870 years ruled the country.

  7. Những người dân Myanmar hãy lấy trứng thôi trộn với nhớt và mắm mà ném vào lũ quân đội và cảnh sát ác ôn đó cho chúng nhớ cái mùi vị của việc giết hại đồng bào mình…
