changeISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN – Thousands of Pakistani protesters made their way from Lahore to the capital of Islamabad with one goal in mind, stopping political corruption in their country.

Leading the way to Islamabad, Muslim cleric Tahir ul Qadri, who’s encouraging a caretaker administration to take the current government’s place and carry out election reform.

Pakistani authorities weren’t too excited about all the unexpected guests; they made barricades out of shipping containers, cars and barbed wire to keep protesters away from the national parliament. Proving that the voice of the people really can bring about change, however, Pakistan’s Supreme Court ordered the Prime Minister be arrested announcing an investigation into allegations of illegal financial kickbacks.

Just goes to show you that fighting for what’s right always pays off.
