To be honest, I didn’t even know there was a curfew until this morning. It was between midnight and 6am – times I am unlikely to be too conscious. Tonight is meant to be 8pm until 6am.
To answer a commenter about what “martial law” is like. I don’t know as it is a “state of emergency”. I still don’t know what that is either but I suspect it is more related to a set of emergency powers rather than anything I will see looking out the window. As for the curfew, I doubt I will notice any difference. I guess it will probably mean all cars will be stopped at roadblocks tonight and anyone not on reasonably important business will be told to go home.
In reality, these measures have been instigated to stop what “might” happen not what is happening as the situation was far worse at this time last year from a street not political point of view. And even worse in 2006 when no such official “states” were enacted as I recall.
The streets are close to normal and the hotels filling with international reporters.
