I arrived at 12:30 and by 1:00 there were 5 security personnel. Shortly after, Saeed and Majid (WPI) arrived. Great timing since many of the embassy staff were leaving with their cars for lunch. I made sure everyone of them saw our signs! One kind passerby accepted to take a picture of me, when I was by myself. A taxicab driver alerted us that security people are taking pictures of us. Many curious looks from passing cars, and with traffic slowing because of our protest, they would be able to read the signs with time! Another person associated with Kanoon showed up around 2:15.
