A small counter-protest against the ongoing demonstrations taking place around Heinveiru Park in Male’ took place yesterday night in the same area.
The group behind the gathering claims to have filed several official complaints about the noise created by demonstrations and have called for the dissolution of Male’ City Council. The counter-protest numbered between 70-100 people, who claim that the continued activity in the area disturbs local residents.
Haveeru has reported an MDP supporter sympathising with this sentiment: “Where’s our human rights, the protest needs to be stopped now, things have gone too far.”
The anti-protest group promised to return on Saturday night in greater numbers.
