The Satirical and the Serious - 1
Modern Coup Period

The Maldivian Democratic Party demonstration area, near the Tsunami monument and surf point on the eastern edge of Male', now has a free open air exhibition featuring satirical photoshopped graphics along with photographs of injuries sustained recently by senior MDP party members and elected officials.

Visitors to the exhibition will find MDP members and supporters are friendly and happy to share information about the exhibits. Wearing a yellow article of clothing such as a hat, scarf, T-shirt is appreciated but not essential.

Stalls sell drinking coconuts directly in front of the Tsunami monument. Seats are often provided there.

All 'Coup Period' photographs are freely available for use in news reports and the promotion of democracy and justice in Maldives. Click on the photos for larger versions.
