Myanmar’s anti-coup​ protesters returned to the streets in force on Wednesday, staging the biggest demonstrations​ since troops fanned out around the country to quell opposition to the new military junta, France 24 News reports.

Much of the country has been in open revolt since the military deposed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s government at the start of the month and charged her under an obscure import law.

Over 547 people have been detained without charge so far, with no access to a lawyer, according to a UN representative.

Dozens of vehicles are blocking key roads across Myanmar’s main city Yangon, in what appears to be a new tactic employed by protesters, BBC News reports.
