Uzbek opposition leaders protest against the policy of Radio Liberty

Posted by Info on 11/08/2009

On August 10, 2009 the Birdamlik movement activists started open-ended hunger strike in front of Radio Liberty headquarters in Washington  with the demand to cancel the censorship of Uzbek Service of Radio Liberty.

Uzbek opposition members in Prague and Stockholm are also planning to join the protesters. The total number of open-ended hunger strike participants in three countries will reach about 50 people.

The employees of Uzbek news service of Radio Ozodlik [Uzbek service of Radio Liberty) say nothing about the activities of opposition leaders outside the country while news from Uzbekistan is always strictly censored. We also demand to offer the air time to all the opposition members, committed to the idea of non-use of force in process of dictator Karimov’s resignation.
