    Demonstrators in Myanmar have staged their biggest protest yet against the military’s seizure of power.

    Hundreds of thousands of people rallied in Yangon and in towns and cities across the country in defiance of threats from the military.

    Channel 4 News has spent a day with a young pro-democracy activist in Yangon, who, despite having been born into an army family herself, adamantly rejects the military takeover and is demanding the army gets out of politics for good.
