Different View of the Demonstration

Well, when I wrote yesterday that the demonstration wasn't a big deal, we'd heard that only 500-1,000 people had attended. But RFE/RL is reporting that as many as 10,000 were there. It was a calm demonstration and Bakiev and Kulov did go out. Bakiev just said the same old things.

The opposition did say they'll have another demonstration at the end of May if the president doesn't respond to their [reasonable] demands. Seems like large, peaceful demonstrations like these could get to be rather embarrassing.
