Another Day At The Riots

I thought this made a nice photo of a protest outside parliament. These two young women came complete with brolly, refreshments, and smartphones. This peaceful scene was in fact broken up by gunfire and stun grenades before the day was through -- not that it was peaceful any more by then. One sees the houses of parliament in the background. OBSERVATION: The protest was ostensibly in support of free tertiary education. However on the ground -- simply reading the slogans on the placards -- it was not so easy to make out. At any rate, free education was a big part of it. It was a political promise once.
