Demonstrators expressed their anger against VOA censorship. Until 11:30 AM there was no reporters showed up from VOA. However, after the rally dispersed one VOA journalist approached organizers to hold interview. Organizers were not happy with the situation and confronted the reporter for coming late to report the rally.
