On political unrest

Freedom of speach can be a bit of a buzz word and misused on occassions but this is problematic.  I understand that you wouldn't want media heavyweights dictating governmental policy, particulary as they aren't elected officials.  However, ejecting all media both local and foreign, that's a problem.  Mind you the current govt got in via a coup so I suppose they were never elected either.  Oh and sacking all the judges several important public service people as well as detaining university professors for critising the govt; is never a good sign.  If I lived there I'd be seriously thinking of leaving.
