Civic pride

By October 8, 2020No Comments

Last night was quiet, and it’s reassuring to see the true nature of the Kyrgyz people at work.

Volunteers organised a massive cleanup of Ala-Too Square, collecting tons of rubbish after Monday night’s demonstration.

Citizens formed народные дружины (people patrols) to deter looting and unrest, and help keep the streets safe.

I hope that the people who want peace and prosperity for the country they love prevail.


Many people have been in touch, expressing concern for me, and wanting to know the situation here. I’m fine, hopefully things are calming down, and normal blog service will be resumed as soon as possible.
