Protesters in Myanmar have faced arrests, curfews and some internet blackouts for several days now.
But despite those challenges, they’ve been going out in huge numbers to make their voices heard.
Tens of thousands protested on Saturday demanding a return to civilian rule.
They’re also calling for the release of deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who’s under house arrest.
Airline staff and school teachers are among groups who’ve joined the marches.
There have been a number of detentions of government critics during overnight raids.
Police have increased their crackdown on large gatherings, which they say violate COVID-19 restrictions.
