There were over 200,000 confirmed participants Tuesday, according to the main organizer, the Free Fare Movement. Though the group said it has nothing planned for Wednesday, there may be scattered protests regardless.

    When they find out how badly they are being scammed, and not just ripped off nine cents, they'll probably torch the palace.
