The ambitious project has been kicked off according to a well-orchestrated scenario in dozens of cities across the country Monday morning by “trade unions” that came out of nowhere and foreign sponsored NGOs. The original plan was to cause major chaos across the country by slowing down traffic in cities and towns.
The trade unions targeted 62 locations in the country by using 1600 vehicles to block one lane of traffic on major highways between 7 am and 4 pm. But apart from one or two locations the action plan didn't work simply because commuters avoided the most advertised trouble spots.
All in all, the first major event that supposed to kick off the color revolution turned out to be a dismal failure.
Corporate media coverage of the event tell you everything about the Monday's performance. In the morning the reports were still euphoric and brazenly manipulative trying to blow the event out of proportion by presenting it as something historic; but by the afternoon when it became clear that the demonstrations didn't turn out the way organizers expected due to the above-mentioned reasons the enthusiasm of the journalists subsided and by the evening most of the reports disappeared from corporate media websites.
