Better news from Central Asia

Uzbek workers have gone on strike, demanding the crazy socialist policy of actually paying people their wages. The authorities squashed it, but the fact that the strike even happens suggests that Uzbeks are fed up with what has been essentially thirteen more years of Soviet-style rule. I suppose it's too much to hope that the US puts some pressure on Islam Karimov to pay attention to the message from his people.
