Someone Call the Orkin Man
It's protest march day for the junketeers in Johannesburg and there are two marches to choose from: radical and wingnut. The wingnuts started first (an hour late) and are whining about everyone from the South African government rightwards (quite a swath). Some of the cockroaches had pro-Osama and Saddam placards and banners.

Over at the merely radical march, it's an anti-Israel fun fest, with SA President Mbeki rallying the unwashed with "a strong call for a free Palestine and an end to the US blockade of Cuba".

Meanwhile, back at the Summit, Bobby Mugabe arrived. I hope the fancy shoppes in Sandton are ready for some power shopping!
