Demonstrators gathered in opposition of the prime minister’s reinstatement while accusing him of committing “treason.” Those gathered were heard chanting “power to the people” and “a civilian government is the people’s choice.”
“The oppression that the security uses against people is plenty and intended at making sure the street’s voice is not heard,” stated a protester by the name of Intissa. “Now, the sound of bombs (tear gas or bullets) is behind me, but so is the sound of protesters which are remaining peaceful. No to deals with the coup instigators.”
