Monywa is one of the top cities to fight against the military dictatorship since the February 1 military coup. Daw Myint Myint Zin was one of thousands of people in Monywa who took to the streets to protest. Daw Myint Myint Zin, a school teacher and poet who wrote under the pen name Kyi Lin Aye, was active in the daily protests from morning to evening, and at night she was a watchman for the neighborhood; doing her part in the uprising. Daw Myint Myint Zin, who used to say that she did not want any gifts on her upcoming birthday, just wanted democracy. While she was in Monywa just days before her birthday, protesting near Red Pagoda on Pyi Daung Su Road, Daw Myint Myint Zin was shot in the chest by the military; killing her.
