“Despite all this violence and attacks every night there are demonstrations. People come out in defiance. It has become something that they have to do... like they have freedom for just that moment of time. And people will say that they feel depressed if they don’t go out. There’s a phenomenon: late at night, people will yell 'Allahu Akbar'. Mostly it has become a statement of defiance. ‘We’re still here.’

And then you’ll hear the gunfire in response …as if to remind them that ‘we’re still here, too’.”
