Two months after a military coup in Myanmar, troops have killed more than 500 civilians, often simply for demanding the army give power back to elected officials. As for ousted members of parliament, most are detained — but some are on the run. And they’re trying to uphold a parallel government. The World’s Patrick Winn reports that one man is emerging as the face of this parliament-in-hiding: Dr. Sasa, who goes by just one name. He is now trying to build a new armed resistance force to take on the military and restore elected rule.
