Photo of the Day: Rafael Marques’ new book distribution model

Members of the public barred from the court room of Rafael Marques’s trial for defamation today. Before the doors were closed, the charges and his plea were read, and he handed out nearly 100 copies of his book Blood Diamonds: Torture and Corruption in Angola (the cause for this trial.) The court adjourns for a month to consider the arguments posed by the defense.

According to the online new site Rede Angola, police arrested five young activists protesting at the court with copies of the book in their hands.
