Hardline president of Kazakhstan has recently switched off some of his Glorious Nation's Internet in order to try and stop an Arab Spring style that was uprising in the former Communist bloc country.
Kazakhstan’s president Nursultan Nazarbayev, who has been in charge for twenty years already, has imposed a 3-week state of emergency in an oil city where ten people had been killed in a clash between cops and demonstrators. The government claimed that the order had been restored in Zhanaozen, a town with population 90,000 people in the country’s far southwest.
However, the part of the crackdown involved switching off all cell phones and online connections in the town in order to prevent protesters organizing themselves. This seems as an exactly the same scenario that had been advocated by UK’s David Cameron as a way of preventing riots in the Glorious Nation of England. Meanwhile, Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry explained that the clashes have been conducted by a tiny group of provocateurs allegedly set on disrupting a public celebration of the 20th anniversary of the country’s independence.
The country’s Ambassador to the United States Erlan Idrissov said during the interview that those were people determined to attack peaceful celebrants in an effort to gain maximum attention and create as much destruction as they could. The ambassador was the person making a really good stab at showing the world that his country was nothing like Borat in a calm and reasoned way. This was unlike the country’s embassy spokesman Roman Vasilenko, who kept pointing out that their citizens didn’t drink fermented horse urine, but rather a beverage called kumys, produced from fermented horse milk.
Nevertheless, Idrissov could be mistaken about provocateurs, because it’s clear that the riots aren’t about anything that revolutionary. The town has been the site of a month-long sit-in by oil workers demanding higher wages, with most of them being fired over the past summer. Demonstrators have targeted headquarters of a gas company UzenMunaiGas, together with the mayor's office and a hotel.
The country’s president has kept a tight lid on any signs of public discontent within his 20 years of rule. In addition, he also had problems with a surge in radical Islamist-inspired violence not long ago, but it looks like right now his first reaction for some reason was to turn off the web.

|If people want to uprise and revolt, they will do so. Demonstrations are just as easy to organize by word of mouth or leaflet posting. Perhaps the Kazakhstan President will start ordering tongues to be cut out and wrists cut off to stop people talking or writing!|
