Supporters of opposition leader Andry Rajoelina were mowed down as they advanced on the presidential palace in Antananarivo on Saturday. On top of the dead over 83 injuries were reported.
68 people died in the same city last month after a riot took place following one of the anti-government protests. The president of Madagascar Marc Ravalomanana has been accused of wanting to turn the country's recent democratic government into a dictatorship.
The opposition is being led by the mayor of Antananarivo. Who has launched legal inquiries into the current government's right to rule the people of Madagascar.
The country's highest courts have already stated they are not qualified to make a ruling on the matter.
So the people have decided to make their voices heard. The voice of the president however is loud and clear as his voice come from the mouths of his semi-automatics.
