The crackdown on pro-democracy protestors in Myanmar is getting harsh day by day. The Irrawady reports that about 300 protesters were reportedly arrested Wednesday during the military junta’s continuing crackdown against anti-regime demonstrations in Yangon’s North Oakkalapa Township. Security forces used teargas, rubber bullets and live rounds of ammunition against a gathering of thousands of protesters near the township’s Kantharyar Park on Wednesday morning. During the assault, hundreds of protesters who ran into the park were arrested by security forces.
Security forces raided the staff quarters of the Myanma Railways Mahlwagone locomotive shed in Mingalar Taung Nyunt Township.
