Roughly Translated excerpt from “Descent into Hell” (above from TopMada):

“It is the descent into Hell. Malagasy were terrorized today. Never in the History violence will not have been exacerbated as much. Never in history our dear values if crowned that are the respect and Fihavana are not also soiled. Today the vote of Malagasy was stolen by a man plugged by the capacity.

Why refuse a democratic referendum when spokesperson of the people is proclaimed? Why kidnap generals and a religious leader to force them to transfer power if one is sure of his movement? Why make believe in the existence of malicious mercenaries? It is a like weapons of mass destruction… they will never be found.

The actions of the president criticizable or not, do not deserve to in no case such radical steps. TGV very quickly forgot the 100 and some people killed in the fatal riots which it caused well before February 7 (*). It is more accommodating for the opposition to take refuge loosely in the events of February 7 but they forget the innocent ones quickly decimated before. When will those who sent their followers to the infamous Black Monday and the burning and looting of buildings be judged?

I think that only a foreign intervention will be able to reason these burned heads and to make it possible all the population to be expressed. Will the HCC (High Constitutional court) legalize a movement based on the fear and the intimidations? One can certainly deceive the most villainous politicians, but the force will never remove with the people their freedom to think. The truth will leave itself and the History will be the judge” – a politician under cover of threatened anonymity because

(*) Note Drafting: On February 7, the opponents with president Ravalomanana, Andry Rajoelina and Monja Roindefo had asked their supporters to go to the presidential palace of Ambohitsirohitra, a place classified as “Red zone,” causing the death of about fifteen people killed with bullets from the presidential guard.

  • There were reports of a serious effort to destabilize the army and that there is some confusion in army camps on the outskirts of Antananarivo, mainly CAPSAT. Rumours start about a military mutiny.
  • Military mutiny confirmed (reportedly 70 soldiers). Most common quote from the military is: “We are with the people. That is enough killing people like that. We will defend our camp from all attack,” said one soldier beside a roadblock, on condition of anonymity. From Reuters.
  • VIVA TV/Radio still off the air.

03/07/09:

  • Representative of TGV that was involved in negotiations with the government and AU/EU has pulled out citing that their demands are not being met. One of those being the resignation of the current president and the second filling the presidents position with the High Authority for Transition Andry Rajoelina.
  • AU has stated that they deny giving a 15 day ultimatum to Marc Ravolomanan to resolve the crisis or lose the AU summit. Turns out to be misinformation.
  • There was a brief gathering at May 13th square, but was dispersed in the early afternoon by the Emmonat with tear gas.
  • First announcement from Andry Rajoelina that he is in a “safe place” and cannot attend the rallies in person.
  • Emmonat broke into VIVA Radio/TV at the end of day and removed servers and files (apparently looking for information from another radio station, which later was not found).

  • Andry Rajoelina called for a March on Saturday with supporters to be dressed in white, destination not announced. This march would not because of the attempted arrest of Andry Rajoelina.
  • There have been reports of Radio/TV signal scrambling.
  • After the botched attempt at arresting Andry Rajoelina he was nowhere to be found. He later communicated that he is in a safe place, which turned out to be the French Embassy. There was a lot of confusion around this, even now, whether he was with the UN or France.
  • Students of Lycee Francais were blocked in their school by supporters of Andry Rajoelina who answered his call to protect him at his home in Ambatobe. The students were blocked in the school most of the day were late evacuated to  the French Embassy in Ivandry once the army arrived. Thought: Since the school was protected by TGV supporters, and students and Andry Rajoelina ended up in the French embassy, does that mean that TGV supporters were protecting the school because Andry was in it? Was he evacuated with the students? Did the Emmonat know at that time?
  • Odon Razanakolona comes out in support of Andry Rajoelina stating on Radio Antsiva that the military should stop the violence and that the population should create “andriamasom pokonolona” in each district.
