We heard the demonstrators coming up the road and noticed that the gate was not locked so I ran out and locked it just as the first ones came past. It was as if they didn't see me and continued on up the road.
I went back in the house and Cheryle gave me the camera and I snuck around the corner of the veranda and snapped this shot of them going past.
The RAMSI helicopter flew around our area most of the remainder of the day. There was at least 1000 and maybe as many as 2000 angry demonstrators who passed us by on their way to the Government House where the Governor General lives. They stayed there nearly 2 hours demanding to see the GC and tell him not to swear into office Gordon Lilo, but were told he had left to go to the police station down the hill.
So down the hill they came angrier now, throwing rocks, bricks or anything they could find, rolling tires and trying to break out the street lights.
