Despite some hope that the airport would reopen this weekend, I strongly doubt that much will happen this weekend. The first clash between protesters and police, earlier today saw the police having to retreat.

More people seem to be joining the protest and on television today, I saw a woman who brought her two small children to the airport. It is unlikely in this situation that the police will use violence to break up the protest. Numbers could drop again by Monday as people return to work.

Since the police and army are reluctant to really try and break up the protest, perhaps something politically really has to give for the madness to end.
