Cooking pot protest against Myanmar's coup

Social media users showed livestreams and posted videos of themselves and other residents on balconies of apartments repeatedly bashing cookware, some shouting anti-coup slogans, as the hashtag #voiceoutfordemocracy gained traction.

Car horns were sounded after dark as drivers rallied behind calls for civil disobedience campaigns.

On Facebook, the main social media platform in the country, some users changed their profile pictures to images of Suu Kyi, or called for boycotts of products from firms linked to the military's business.

Medics threatened to stop work, even as a coronavirus epidemic rages.

Suu Kyi had called on the public to reject the coup, according to her party, which won a November election in a landslide.

The ruling military on Tuesday warned against statements by media and the public and a spreading of rumours on social media to incite rioting and cause instability.
