After spending most parts of yesterday in one of the most surreal apartments we’ve ever been in, we have the impression that this is the day before something really is about to happen. Tomorrows elections is expected to be greeted with skepticism from the people.
As one man we talked to puts it; “The people that are supposed to watch over the elections are the same people that’s been firing tear-gas, burning tents and killing our neighbors - how can we trust them, how can we obey them and do what they say?”
So most likely tomorrow and Tuesday will be turbulent days.
We’re currently at the hotel trying to help organizing interviews and chats between some of the people we’ve met and BBC, Reuters and Financial Times. We’re also meeting up with Swedish freelance journalist, Yasmine El Rafie (SVT, SR) in a couple of minutes. Later this evening we’re off to the Swedish Embassy.
