Sidewalk shrines to Sunday’s police shooting victims were erected in Myanmar on Monday, while at the same time, the first funerals for the victims were being held. Despite the violent government crackdown, protesters gathered again Monday, building barricades across streets before being dispersed by security forces firing tear gas and stun grenades.
