The military government of Burma has threatened to take what it calls "effective action" against pro-democracy supporters who have staged a rare string of anti-junta protests across the country over the last three weeks.
In a statement, the military government blamed Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) of trying to instigate nationwide unrest.
Anti-government protests have been held almost daily in Burma in recent weeks after a big hike in fuel prices last month.
The government defends the price hike, saying it was necessary because of high world oil prices that have made fuel subsidies unaffordable.
Amnesty International estimates that more than 150 people have been arrested over the protests.
