Comment: And they're a BRICS country!

(See in situ)

And they're a BRICS country!

Supposedly they have a good economy and they're still rioting over there. Wow! I think it's progress that the people got one of the things they originally wanted (at least from what I've read) - no bus fare hike increase - but they're still rioting today. The government grows and grows and grows. Now the people are stepping up and growing themselves (taking back their liberties).

On a related note, it feels surreal to me what's going on in the world. It's also surreal that what's going on there is going to happen here (in some form at least). It's like a storm that will make its way to this country at some point but right now we're watching on TV how powerful it is.
