Protesters march in Dawei as Myanmar deaths top 500

Video by local news outlet Dawei Watch showed hundreds of protesters with placards that read "We Want Democracy" emblazoned with the face of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been in detention since the military junta took over on February 1.

Thousands of protesters have also reportedly taken to the streets in several other towns across the country, according to local media.
