Myanmar Easter Eggs Become Symbols of Pro-Democracy Protests


Myanmar pro-democracy demonstrators have adopted the Christian practice of painting Easter eggs to symbolize their protest against the nation’s military coup.

On Easter Sunday, opponents of military rule in Myanmar painted protest messages on the eggs, including “Spring revolution,” “We must win,” and “Get out MAH” in reference to the junta’s leader, General Min Aung Hlaing.

Other eggs were adorned with images of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi along with the characteristic three-finger salute — a protest gesture — while others bore slogans of “Save our people,” “Save Myanmar,” and “We Want Democracy.”

“Easter is all about the future and the people of Myanmar have a great future in a federal democracy,” said Dr. Sasa, an international envoy for the deposed Suu Kyi civilian government.
