London: Emergency lobby of Kazakhstan embassy

Thursday 21st June 2012

12 noon

Outside the Kazakhstan embassy, 33 Thurloe Square, London SW7 2SD, nearest tube South Kensington.

This protest is to condemn the latest clampdown on individuals opposed to the Kazakh regime and demand their release.

A famous and popular independent theatre director and performer, Bolat Atabayev, who openly spoke out against the dictatorship in Kazakhstan, was arrested on 15 June.

He has been charged with 'inciting social discord' in Zhanaozen where the massacre of striking oil-workers and their supporters took place in December.

With him was a young journalist, Zhanbolat Mamaia. Both of them are being sent by road from Almaty to Aktau to stand trial.

The conditions of the journey - the heat and the discomfort could kill Bolat. His relatives fear for his health because he suffers from insulin-dependent diabetes. His brother was stopped from giving him the medicines he needs to take every day.
