Pro-democracy activists gather in front of Hilaaleege

A few courageous pro-democracy activists gathered in front of Hilaaleege, the residence of former Vice president Dr.Mohamed Waheed Hassan. He has been in power since February 2012 after forcing President Mohamed Nasheed to step down in what is widely seen as a coup brought by the security forces, the religious extremists and the rich business elite.

The people gathered were calling for Dr.Waheed to hand power over to the speaker of parliament in order to make way for an election. A little distance away people on motor bikes were honking and revving their engines. As more people started to gather, the security forces dispersed the crowd with  little confrontation.
