In February large protests were held all across the nation, saying the government was ignoring the needs and demands of ordinary people. Though the protests were peaceful, the government responded by arresting hundreds of the protestors. Human rights watchdog, Amnesty International, has called on the government to change its legislation to allow its citizens the right to peaceful protest. Freedom of assembly is currently heavily restricted. Pray that the growing discontent among the people will prepare the hearts of many people to receive the Gospel as they meet the love, compassion and justice of Jesus (The Bible, Proverbs 28:5).
