The Youth Invades Bishkek
BISHKEK, Dec 5, 2000 -- (Transcaspian Project) It is already
not the first year when the social situation around the
Kirghiz capital aggravate.
Regularly, mostly in autumn, groups of unemployed youth
which came to the capital from distant regions, seize land
lots on the outskirts of Bishkek.
They settle tents there, build earth-houses and sheds: they
try to build there a small shelter in any possible way. The
authorities try to stop the illegal self-acquisitions.
However, they are mostly unable to deal with this huge wave.
Meanwhile, groups of rebelling youth already unified in a
political organization called "Intymak" ("Unity"). They have
their own leaders and ideologists. The "Intymak" leaders
declare that they were forced to use extreme measures due to
the increasing poverty, unemployment and the inattention of
authorities to people.
"Intymak" have thousands members. Moreover, according to its
leaders, each day this number increase by 150-200 persons.
This is not surprising, as no residential apartments are
built now in Kirgizia. Nevertheless, according to the data
of the sociologists, there are approximately 100 thousand
homeless families living in the capital. Add to that the
crowd of unemployed youth, who permanently come to the
capital hoping to earn anything so they could survive.
Therefore, the mood of self-builders is very resolutely and
even aggressive. "We have nothing to lose" they say, - and
we shall never recede from our decision. The authorities
should help us to us to realize our legitimate right of
having a normal life".
The government officials, as a rule, submit to the requests
of the aggressive meetings and pickets near the walls of the
"White house". Therefore, they sign each year resolutions,
which order the metropolitan authorities "as an exception"
to assign some sites, "suitable for house construction", in
the places demanded by the picketers. The essence of this
problem is not just in the possibility of building houses on
the sites invaded by the homeless and unemployed youth, but
that it is not the first time that Kirgizia faces the
problem of internal migrants, which aggravate the social
situation in the capital in a very dangerous way. As long
ago as the era of independence, similar guys using the same
anarchist methods have forced the government to take a
similar resolution allowing them to build houses on the
outskirts of the city.
Everything in that period was similar to what is happening
today. The same requirements of youth, same shy opposition
of authorities. It was felt then, that "the fathers of the
republic " are only afraid from an uprising by the groups of
youth and the population. To prevent massacres and
disorders, the authorities accepted unprecedented and often
wrongful concessions. Thousand hectares of prolific
irrigated grounds that use to supply the capital with
vegetables, milk and meat were given for house
constructions. They hoped then that such way will enable
somehow to prevent a social explosion.
However, the results were absolutely the contrary of what it
was expected. First, the Democratic movement of Kirgizia
(DMK) was formed and got stronger during those meetings. The
"DMK" was directly responsible for expulsing the communists
from the power, which they has failed then to defend the
lawfulness and order. The nationalist party "Asaba" was also
formed on the fields occupied by the youth for the first
Secondly, the concessions of government have not resolved
the housing problems of the homeless. On the contrary, a
huge wave of unemployed invaded Bishkek after the first wave
of occupiers. Moreover, the authority being unable anymore
to control the situation was forced to give new grounds
again. Today according to the city authorities there are
more then thirty new districts built around the capital and
nobody knows how many people live in them.
