Myanmar Coup is taking brutal turns every single day, ever since their military overthrew the elected government. Thousands of protesters taking the streets demanding the release of their leaders and restoring the rule in the hand of the elected government.


A very heart-touching video from a protest area of Myitkyina has surfaced online today. In the video, a nun, namely Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng can be seen kneeled and begging the army to "Spare the Children" and instead of them kill her.


Seeing her two other nuns also kneeled and begged the military personnel to leave the protesters rather than shoot and kill them. Later Sister Ann said to the media, "I knelt begging them not to shoot and torture the children, but to shoot me and kill me".


She also added, " the police were chasing to arrest them and I was worried for the children. The children panicked and ran to the front. I couldn't do anything but I was praying to God to save and help the children".


On Monday thousands of protesters took to the streets in Myitkyina against the forced military rule. Most of them were either gunned down or arrested by the police, but the uprising didn't come to the silence.


Myanmar's military overthrew the elected government on 1st February, detaining Civilian leader Aung Sun Suu Kyi, former president U.Win Myint and other influential leaders. This all was as the result of the general election of Nov.


Last year, where Aung Sun Suu Kyi's National League of Democracy won a majority by winning over 83% of total seats available. Myanmar military refused to accept the result.
