“You must realize that protests cannot last indefinitely. My government will not lift a hand to stop or suppress you.“However, the fact of the matter is that other forces and actors will seek to take over your protests that they may redirect them in ways you did not intend and perhaps do not agree with.“Every successful protest movement the world over has understood that there comes a time when activity must move from the street to the negotiation table.“That time for you has come. Do not be afraid of this reality. You should welcome it,” he said.
