Protest in Pakistan

Police in the Pakistani city of Karachi have used sticks to beat up protesters outside the high court, as lawyers began an anti-government protest march. Organisers intend the four-day march to culminate in a sit-in at the parliament in the capital, Islamabad, on Monday.

The demonstrators want President Asif Ali Zardari to fulfil a pledge to reinstate all judges sacked under former President Pervez Musharraf. The government says the march is aimed at destabilising the country.
Police say they have arrested more than 400 opposition activists in the past few days.

Perhaps the only thing that changes the last decades in Pakistan is the …names!
