A demonstration was held in Ulaan Baatar on 31st March, to protest politician’s personal off shore assetts of at least $US 17 Billion. Social conditions are decaying in Mongolia and people have to get money from Korean loan sharks for food, while a few individuals have more wealth than the entire country. This has forced Mongolians into action, as they realize that the life blood is being sucked out of their country by their elected officials past and present. They demanded that proper investigations be conducted and the stolen money returned.
A first step would be to recall Mr S Bayar from his ridiculous appointment as ambassador to the UK, check his daughter’s off shore accounts and demand explanations for his trading in luxury mansions around the world.
According to Associated Press and the official version there were a few hundred people present in the square. Eye witness versions count well over 25,000. No National TV was there to cover the biggest rally in Mongolia since 2008.
The atmosphere was peaceful and calm, showing the quiet determination of the people to take their country back by due process, giving no opportunity for the corrupt government to use strong-arm tactics against them.
