Anything but peaceful: Some Buddhists in Myanmar welcome the coup and call for violence.
Now there are probably millions on the streets. “Save Myanmar”, their posters demand and: “Release Aung San Suu Kyi.” They march, ride on mopeds, professional groups or university faculties organize meetings and form demonstration blocks.

What they want is clear: recognition of the November election, when the democracy icon and Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi won a good 80 percent of the vote.
