Burmese Activist: “It’s Not an Anti-Coup Protest. It’s a Revolution; An Uprising!”

38 people died on Wednesday, including a 19-year-old who was shot in the head, in what the United Nations has called the “bloodiest” day of the Myanmar crisis. We speak to an activist from Myanmar to share her insights on the ongoing protests against the military, as well as what they hope to achieve from it.
