Cartoon: Protests kick off in Bishkek

by Teo on 4/10/2007 · 1 comment

Protests have started on Bishkek’s Ala Too square with 21yurts already set up and plenty of material for more. Just by yurt count, these protests will be clearly bigger than last November. Kyrgyz President Bakiyev has promised to take strict measures to maintain order if necessary. A small protest has started outside the White House. Stay tuned for changes.
For readers outside of Bishkek, you can try following this overloaded webcam pointed at Alatoo square. Or this one.
