The military coup in Myanmar on February 1 sparked the largest and most widespread protests in the country's recent history and demonstrated the determination of the people not to be drawn back into a dark past of military dictatorship.
The military responded with ruthless repression, killing more than 1.000 people, arbitrarily arresting and detaining thousands, banning independent media and blocking internet access.
