Telecomix are setting up dialups as we speak, in an operation coordinated

everything is set up.

More is ofc always needed.

> Some members of this list may have seen news of the government crackdown
in Kazakhstan.
> Excerpt from the HRW report:
> "The government has apparently shut down access to at least some mobile,
voice, and text services in Zhanaozen. By late afternoon, Human Rights
Watch could no longer reach workers by mobile phone, and access to and other news sites reporting on the unrest had been blocked
by the authorities. “Without a means to communicate with the outside world,
people in Zhanaozen are extremely vulnerable,” Rittmann said."
> Is anybody aware of efforts to set up dial-up access, satellite internet
access, ad hoc radio or wireless networks  or anything for Kazakhstan? I'm
hearing rumors (unconfirmed) that shutdown of Internet and some mobile
services may extend beyond Zhanaozen.
> If anybody is aware of any efforts underway please let me know either on
or off-list. I know some people who may be interested in supporting such
efforts but they don't know who to approach.
> Cheers,
