In defiance of parliament’s decision to renew its term this afternoon– and thus delay elections for over a year– protestors pelted MPs cars as they left Nejmeh Square.
Tomatoes rained down on the black tinted luxury vehicles. Some attached protest stickers, others pounded the hood. Policemen tried in vain to hold them back, but many could not help smiling. “We wish we could join them,” one soldier told me.
