Entering the Place of Democracy is definitely forbidden. The political debate is consequently recovering the street. On June 2nd, the public Place of May 13th, in Analakely, massively welcomed demonstrators increasingly disappointed by the transitional power. Freedom of speech as well as the end of the three years long burdening transitional rule happened to be the main claims. The demonstrationís leader addressed for the first time ever a potential general strike, and trade unions are getting ready to follow. [See]

The High Authority of Transition supportive armed forces had the opportunity to save some of their tear gas on Wednesday. Demonstrators went down to the capital cityís streets again in order to enter the Place of Democracy. The transitional ruling power held their watchdogs back and rather sent this time around a gang of young junkies throw stones at the demonstrators. Panic and chaos swiftly overcame Antananarivoís central part. [See]

Various street demonstrations were recently expected to take place. The political movement of former president, Marc Ravalomanana, scheduled a meeting on May 12th over the Place of Democracy in Ambohijatovo. The "forbidden" area keeps on being locked and guarded by the military forces openly supportive of the High Authority of Transition. Unwilling to face up to pending clashes, the movementís leaders present made towards the Magro square, in which demonstrations have been held daily during the latest three years. The decision apparently pissed some supporters off, as they were definitely bound to deal with the security forces the hard way. [See]
