    Charlotte Kennedy: Pakistan's protests

    09 October 2014.  Islamabad’s tree-lined streets, usually clear, are now trash-strewn and cluttered with tents. Men and women camped opposite Parliament House are washing their clothes, rolling up their bed mats and quietly gossiping over deep-fried parathas and boiling cups of milky tea.
