A Call For Release

October 21, 2012

The people held signs above their heads, calling for freedom and a grave injustice to be righted with their . Though after the official protest had come to an end, a man screamed emphatically toward the Royal Palace, the peaceful demonstration was largely uneventful and lasted only a little over an hour.

As long as these activists remain jailed, the demonstrators vow to continue to voice their dissent in the streets.
