As the anniversary of the protests approaches violence has begun to rise. This violence is becoming more apparent as thousands of protestors have gathered in the streets to join a newly organized demonstration. The rally is a result of the interior ministry’s denial of the protestors request to organize an open-ended demonstration. The rally continues to call for reform and the release of political prisoners. The injustice that has fallen on these prisoners includes beatings, raids, torture and in some instances death.
