Power Lies in the Streets

The government of Kyrgyzstan appears to have fallen, and with it, possibly the future of the last US airbase in Central Asia.

It's hard to know what will come with the new government, because without an established socialist political movement, there could be more of the same. But the overall point is that state security forces are helpless against numbers and the control of state institutions is about physical control and occupation.

If you want to see what an insurrection looks like, go the video.
