Attempted Protest in Karshi

by Nathan Hamm on 5/6/2005

Though their protest was shut down in Tashkent and all protesters were returned to Kashkadaryo, the women who protested in Tashkent are still trying to register their disapproval with the authorities.

“We were planning to march to the administrative centre of the [Kashkardarya] region demanding the release of our men who were arrested in Tashkent after police broke up our protest outside the US embassy,” Zulayho Charieva, 29, told IRIN. “But all women were taken away to the police office on Thursday morning and kept for a whole day,” she added.
