It has been a very unlucky day since morning. The gypsy group, which claims to be pro-military supporters, had been rioting since the morning in downtown Yangon, paying 5,000 MMK per day. The military council was called a rally to respond to the protests.
They attacked the local people. One person was stabbed. It’s a miracle that the Myanmar Police Force was protecting this mob; gypsy group in public. All right! The police guarded the so-called pro-junta people. Roads were cleared for them. Polices carefully followed them. This was well known in the international media. Their attempt to provoke the people failed. In the evening, another event happened. In Tamwe Township, Yangon Region, local people protested against a ward administrator appointed by the military council. This was something that should happen for the people. It was overthrown by the army and police.
They fired several shots. Protesters were dragged into their homes. That was the first day in Yangon that gunfire was heard. I was never relieved to hear the same gunfire every day across the country.
