Bloodless Coup

Millions of citizens in my country today poured out into the streets and then met at pre-arranged meeting places to demand a change of government.  Evidently the current administration has agreed to relinquish power peacefully and even to cooperate over the next few months in a smooth transition.

No tanks were seen in the streets, no shots were fired, no houses were torched.

Democracy is a beautiful thing.
