Myanmar protesters undeterred by deadly police violence - DW News.

In Myanmar, thousands of people have defied threats of violence to take part in a new day of protests against the country's military rulers. This comes a day after police fired live ammunition to disperse protesters in the city of Mandalay, killing at least two people and injuring several others. The crowds were forced to flee as security forces chased after them using slingshots, rubber bullets and water cannon. The protesters were repeating their call for an end to military rule after a coup almost three weeks ago.
They return despite the risk. The reality now crystal clear for these demonstrators, after police killed two more people with live ammunition on Saturday. It was the worst violence since mass rallies began weeks ago. Past uprisings against the military have failed - these demonstrators want them gone for good.
But they can't go it alone - protesters are appealing to the international community for solidarity.
On Sunday, Facebook deleted the military's page for inciting violence following Saturday's deadly crackdown.
The killings have only strengthened the protesters' resolve. They hope that this time perhaps they can free Myanmar from a military that refuses to relinquish power.
