    ... have been unhappy about this and felt that their voices were not heard, so when Blaise decided to change the constitution a third time so that he would have power until he died, the people protested.
    On Tuesday the entire nation shut down and protested peacefully against Blaise's proposition. A vote was to be held on Thursday on whether or not Blaise would change ...

After a free hour to wander around (including for me the search for beer as I had previously ran out and with New Years ...
