Police Preparing for Protest Demonstrations

 National police authorities last week organized a so-called “pre-emptive” training for a possible massive protest, local media outlets reported.
Hundreds of armed police officers, and armored vehicles and truck-mounted water cannons, have been mobilized in and around the Central Stadium for the training exercise. Media reporters were barred from entering into the Central Stadium which was used as an “emergency-situation object”, and all civilian vehicles passing by were checked by police.

“This was a regular exercise for a possible emergency response that we prepare for a ‘natural’ disaster situation,” said Col. T.Sainjargal, a chief press officer of the General Police Department.

But local media outlets speculated that this was for a possible protest that civil movements have announced that they would organize on March 11 (So much for freedom of assembly).

O.Magnai, one of activists leaders of the civil movement, earlier announced that over ten different civil movements would joined their voices together to set up a new unified movement by holding its first meeting at the Cultural Center of Mongolian Trade Unions. A massive protest is expected to march at the main square, afterwards.
