8 Some Days After The Kazakh Oil Strike

Some Days After The Kazakh Oil Strike

Let us discuss the clash that occurred between striking oil workers and government forces in a town in western Kazakhstan in the result of which many innocent people were killed.

On December 25 Prime Minister of Kazakhstan invited bloggers from Almaty and Astana to visit the Kazakh city of Zhanaozen to check the rumors that had spread following tragic events of December 16 2011.

People were very concerned about the commercial they saw in the net where policemen shot at the coming crowd. Authorities say that only part of the video was shown in the net while another part where the crowd burns buildings is intentionally concealed. You may be dissatisfied with policemen’s behaviour but if your houses are robbed and burnt it is the police department you will go to.

Now entry to the town is restricted. There are additional internal military forces  in the streets. A curfew has been announced up to January 5.

These buildings burnt till ashes. Local authority buildings were primary targets of the crowd.

Personnel worried about their lives too much and had to jump out of the windows.

Today the burnt buildings are being actively restored.

Aruana Hotel was destroyed as well. That was the place where members of different commissions who failed to solve the problems of the people on strike were accommodated.

Somebody has decorated the building for the coming New Year.

KazMunaiGas company management admits that there was lack of dialogue between them and common workers. They plan to create new working places in the same region instead of sending people to other parts of the country. BTA bank administration states that only guards were present at the bank that day. 25 people stormed in paying no attention to the cautionary shots of the security.

    This reminds me of the strikes in the US at the coal mines. At one point one of those strikes turned into an actual armed conflict between the miners and the mining company officials. These happened in my Grand Dad’s time. To this day archeology students from a local university are still finding the evidence of the coal company’s thugs using Browning machine guns against the striking miners.

      I am referring to a strike that happened in West Virginia. Energy production laborers have been getting the short end of it for a very long time. This is true here in this article as it is all over the World.

      Multi-National corporate ruling types are the current problem. This has been true for a long time, just because the Kings and Queens are thrown down does not mean that those who helped put them in power have gone anywhere.

    The commentary in this blog is terribly inaccurate and vague.

    I dont understand at all what has happened or who by.

      I have an inaccurate and vague understanding of a workers strike and strike breakers ?? Maybe ?? or striking workers fighting company men ?? Maybe or…….

        But really at this stage the details are of no use. People have been killed and their families lives are changed forever.

        Frustration causes anger then violence which brings retaliation, then the cycle starts again.
