1 Year After: Parade in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Morrire Livejournal: Отчет о параде

Elena Skochilo (Morrire) has the story and photos from parade earlier today in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan celebrating one year since the "Tulip Revolution" swept aside Akaev and made way for the current government.

Apparently the parade had a performance in which the Kyrgyzstan constitution was trapped in a web and the tulip revolutionaries helped it escape and reveal itself. Would be wonderful if it really happened.

Ms. Skochilo reminds readers through some small hints that many of these revolutionaries by day, were looters by night.

Russian readers should browse Elena's account of the events of 1 year ago as well. Link to the front page of her livejournal is here.
