Activists reported that demonstrators donated water and face shield to the police as they ask them to be on their side, otherwise future generations will suffer. Myanmarese in Norway and Netherlands also protested against the coup carried on February 1, 2021.
The protestors flashed the three-finger salute, from the saga Hunger Games. The salute has become a symbol against the military takeover. The demonstrations extended to Myanmar’s second city Mandalay. Although more protests are expected in the coming days, thus far it has remained peaceful. The military junta has not commented on the latest events yet.
