    Anti-coup protests have been ongoing in Myanmar for days now, amid demands that the military restore the civilian government, which had been in power since 2015.

    Live from Myanmar as demonstrators are holding a new rally against the military coup and the detention of State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.

    On 1 February, Myanmar witnessed a coup as the military arrested senior members of the newly-elected parliament right before it was due to convene for an inaugural session. The military declared a state of emergency for one year, pledging to hold a new election after it expires. Following the coup, Myanmar faced a wave of protests in support of the overthrown authorities.
