Police brace for more protests in East Timor

Police and security forces in East Timor are braced for a further day of protests outside the National University in Dili.

Since Monday, dozens of the students have been arrested as part of a continuing demonstration against what they say is government waste in the mid year budget review and a proposed new law that would allow civilians to carry guns.

Police paddy wagons look nice. Maybe if the demonstrators go away, the Police could lend, lease, or give them to the politicians, they wouldn't have to buy all those Toyotas, and the problem would go away. Bracks might want to suggest this strategy to the PM.
