[PROTESTERS SHOUTING]

MOHAMMAD AL-QASIM: Today we are trying to prove that we didn't get our real independence. Our independence is still not achievable. Independence means that people are belonging to their land, to their homes, to their authority.

Our authority has corrupted in everything in the country. They have stolen the money. They had stolen the land. They have stolen the legal system.
