Tens of thousands of Burmese rallied over the weekend of February 6-7, 2021, in the wake of the coup in Myanmar. Protesters were angered after the military placed their civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior leaders under arrest on February 1. On February 6, the internet was cut across Myanmar for the second time since Suu Kyi’s arrest. Protesters were forced to communicate through word of mouth, SMS texts and phone calls.
