Kazakhstan: Solidarity with protesters attacked by regime forces

The Committee for a Workers' International has received an appeal for solidarity from a group of left activists in Kazakhstan, known as 'Red Yurt', following a vicious attack by state security forces on a demonstration in Almaty, the country's largest city.

The authoritarian Kazakhstan state is continuing to suppress all democratic rights, including the right to peacefully protest, as well as making life harder for workers and young people by increasing prices on basic essentials.

On 6 July, left activist Valikhan Sultanov was arrested at a protest demonstration against price increases. According to unconfirmed reports, he is now in one of the medical institutions of Almaty in a serious condition with severe head wounds.

Demonstrators were 'kettled' by security forces for hours in sweltering heat and repeatedly beaten.

Please send messages of protest to your Kazakhstan embassy and other business and cultural organisations linked with the Kazakhstan government.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
