BANGKOK -- Protesters in Myanmar have adopted guerilla tactics that resemble flash mobs in response to the junta's bloody crackdown against anti-coup demonstrations in the country.
As heavy rain blanketed Yangon on Friday morning, a few youths stood at a bus stop, pretending to wait for their ride. Others went through the motions of lining up for an ATM. Suddenly, a group unfurled a banner and marched swiftly down the thoroughfare. It served as a cue for others on standby to silently join in, until the number of demonstrators reached at least 100.
