Peace Protestors Politely Ask To Speak To The President. The President Politely Says No

On Saturday there was another protest in front of the government building, but this time it was by 2000 people looking for an end to all the corruption, intimidation and violent protesting. Read the report here. They gathered outside the president’s palace and requested an audience with Bakiev. He said no. Interesting really, given that when the supporters of dodgy parliamentarian Ryspek Akmatbaev asked for a similar audience, he said yes. Twice. Seems that using intimidation and the threat of violence is a far more effective way of getting to speak to the head of the country.
