Several pro-democracy Buddhist monks came out on the streets of Myanmar.

They all rallied against the military coup in demonstrations.

The monk’s rally coincided with the 14th anniversary of previous clergy-led mass protests.

The country of Myanmar has been in turmoil since the February coup.

The entire economy of the country was paralysed when the military ousted Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian government.

The monks in Myanmar have been seen as a supreme moral authority historically.

Dozens of monks on Saturday marched through the streets of Mandalay with flags and banners and threw colourful streamers in the air.

Chanting for the release of political prisoners including Aung San Suu Kyi’s political party, the monks rallied on the streets of Myanmar.

In 2007 also, Buddhist monks led big demonstrations nationwide against the previous military junta regime.
