The protesters were urging the government in Burma to carry out an investigation into the death of Khin Win.
Khin Win was shot dead on 22 December 2014 when police opened fire on her and other protesters who were protesting against land being taken over for the Letpadaung copper mine project in Sagaing region.
The Letpadaung project has resulted in land confiscations, environmental degradation, and the implementation of a policy of arresting and harassing peaceful protesters.
