300 women block bypass road in Suzak town of Kyrgyzstan
In Suzak town, 300 women have blocked the bypass road. Member of Suzak district council, coordinator of public movement "For People Power" Bekbolot Ibragimov reported to 24.kg news agency.
According to him, today morning, July 12, 2010, several women came to the building of the district akimiat (administration), demanding that militia do not conduct searches in houses of Suzak residents and do not detain people suspected in implication to arrangement of mass bloody clashes in the south of the republic.
"But the militia and the commandant's office are performing their work. If guilty - answer according to the law. Everything is just. These women are just provocateurs. They stood, shouted in front of the building of the akimiat for a while, the Akim came out and talked to them. But, by all appearances, this conversation did not suit them. They have now come out to the bypass road and blocked the movement," said Bekbolot Ibragimov.
He also noted that the protesters are not advancing any political demands. "The women are disposed very aggressively. They are shouting, crying. But militia is not interfering with the process. Now the representatives of local authorities are negotiating with them. They are trying to talk them into going home, explaining that searches are being conducted in everybody's house - regardless of their nationality. But the women are not listening," Bekbolot Ibragimov concluded.
