Milk Tea Alliance Day! It was a day when tea-drinking friends in six countries, including Myanmar, protested for Myanmar(Burma). I did not think everything would be all right. The situation in Yangon was very bad. Major protest sites were blocked. For example, protesters were barred from coming to Sule, Hledan, Myay Ni Gone.
Many of them faced difficult to go these areas and junctions. I also had a hard time getting to Myay Ni Gone. The rebels seem to think the crowd was small. But there was no less. Thousands of people were protesting peacefully around Myay Ni Gone. Strike groups joined one by one. Peaceful protests took place not far from the blockade. At around 1:30 pm, they started demolishing. They fired about 10 smoke bombs and 10 sound bombs at a time. In the front line, we can’t open our eyes, shortness of breath and hot flashes with Coke. Then, they pushed and joined the crowd after hearing about seven gunshots. Everyone ran and I hid into a nearby eight-story apartment building. The people in the apartment were friendly. I and other people were carefully hidden in their room and monitored. Protesters ran away. Most of them hid in this building. The neighborhood became completely silent. All watched the rebels’ movements from the apartment. They were searching for someone/something. They brought the food, looking around here and there. They were real rebels who behave as lower social class.
. About half an hour later, they left. Then the protesters, including me, took to the streets and continued to protest again. Many people died today because of their violent crackdown. There were 26 killed in Myanmar including Four who died in Yangon. Many people were killed by rebels. Who will save us? How many dead people will the UN help?
