Easter in Myanmar: Easter protests: protesters ‘Easter egg strike’ against Myanmar coup

In Myanmar, protesters demonstrated against the military regime on Sunday, with messages written on Easter eggshells, demanding the restoration of democracy in the country. It is worth noting that on the occasion of Easter people give each other colored eggs because it is believed that the eggs give the message of new life and the beginning of good times.

In the Insein district of Yangon, the country’s largest city, people performed a song and laid eggs on which the Spring Revolution was written. Many eggs were painted with a “three-finger salute,” symbolizing opposition to the February 1 coup. Sunday’s show was called “Easter Egg Strike”.

In Mandalay, the country’s second largest city, people also demonstrated against military rule and demanded the restoration of democracy.
