    Please protest somewhere else, it is the innocent public who have to suffer and get late to go home. Today is Friday that means all leaving for outstation are at an inconvenience. Take it out on the Gov not on the people!

    This is how Arab Spring commenced - democratic protest is more important than blockage of highways.
    The army & police will move in soon like what happened in the middleast dictaterships.
