Protest Parade 2006

Exciting times are unfolding in East Timor right now.

I just got back from a big demonstration in front of the palace.

The crowd is fired up chanting GO ALKAIRI! GO ALKATIRI! GO ALKATIRI! Meaning go away, get out of here, resign from office.

Other groups are chanting AL KATIRI F*** YOU.

It seems that the momentum against Alkatiri is mounting.

The pictures speak for themselves.

Once again the Australian troops are able to keep a handle on the crowd.

Needless to say there would be pandemonium if they were not here.

good job
