Protestors demanding better health care, education, and economic conditions were arrested on the outskirts of Yangon and state-run media warned that other protests that break the law will trigger a crackdown. Sources close to those arrested say that the protestors were taken from their homes for interrogation.

This is the first demonstration against the military government's capacity to rule rather than its legal right. The junta does not take light to any protests or dissent. Predictably, the National League for Democracy of detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi expressed full support for the "peaceful protest." The protest lasted 30 minutes and was peaceful.
