Power of people: clothes line in parliament lawns of Pakistan

Both parties asked the prime minister to resign due to election rigging allegations and corruption, rioted when they were assaulted by the police and yet did not engage any Pakistan Army personnel putting the country's military in a neutral position.

The photograph depicts how people decided to 'live in' and hang a few clothes lines too to claim their rights to their own nation. Some thing one would hardly see in another country.

The second one below, is from the supreme court wall when the protest was yet peaceful:
