Yangon protesters burn copies of military-drafted 2008 constitution

Around a dozen protesters gather in Yangon's Tamwe township to burn copies of the 2008 constitution. This comes a day after a group of ousted parliamentarians acting as an underground parallel administration(known as the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw), announced the abolition of the military drafted constitution.
