FLASH MOBS MARK 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF KAZAKHSTAN’S INDEPENDENCE
Various events are being held throughout the country ahead of the 25th anniversary of independence. Thus, in Shymkent, the students built a huge ‘25’. The flash mob brought together over 200 activists at the State Institute’s stadium.
ASSEL AITYMBETOVA, STUDENT, SOUTH KAZAKHSTAN TEACHER-TRAINING INSTITUTE:
The 25th Independence anniversary is a great event. Students could not stay away and organized a flash mob. So many students participated in it to show that we love our country and proud of it.
Kyzylorda residents decided to do the same as what Shymkent students did. Hundreds of college students wearing the same outfit built number ‘25’ symbolizing Kazakhstan’s historical date and performed patriotic songs. Flash mob participants say that sovereignty is priceless treasure thanks to which the young generation is confident in their future.
DULDUL RUSLAN, DIRECTOR, ABLAI KHAN COLLEGE:
The main purpose is to bring up the sense of patriotism. I believe that today’s flash mob will contribute to unity in society as well as the formation of social activism among young people.
Petropavlovsk policemen built number 25 with police cars. 80 young policemen took part in this flash mob. All of them were born in the year when Kazakhstan gained independence. Then the law enforcement officers released sky-blue and yellow balloons into the sky, in the colors of Kazakhstan’s flag.
ULAN ABILMAZHINOV, POLICE OFFICER, PETROPAVLOVSK:
I am proud to be born the year when Kazakhstan gained independence. The most important achievement in our country is peace. I promise that the young policemen will stand in defense of the rule of law in our region. North Kazakhstan residents can sleep with a peaceful mind.
Over 70 people took part in the campaign in Atyrau. The performance included patriotic songs and dances. According to organizers, this initiative should encourage young generation to become qualified specialists and work for the benefit of Motherland.
ZHASKANAT KEMELKHAN, STUDENT, POLYTECHNIC COLLEGE:
I am very happy and proud that I am a citizen of the Independent Kazakhstan. We, the representatives of the younger generation, will make our contribution to the development of our country, by our academic achievements now and later after graduation we will use the acquired knowledge in practice. I congratulate everyone on this holiday!
