The 2011 Bekolanish protest and riots was a major uprising in the Republic of Bekolan. The riot began in the early hours of the 29th May and ended on June 3rd.

Backround[edit | edit source]

At around 7am on the 29th May around 8,000 protesters and rioters gathered at Central Square Park in the capital, Sherston. By about 9am the riot had attracted about 2,000 more rioters and by Mid-Day the numbers were up at 15,000. The Police only had a minor presence of about 100 officers hoping the protest would eventually dissolve but when the rioters began destroying infrastructure and setting up barricades, 2000 Police officers fully equipped with riot gear were sent in. Some rioters were equipped with knifes and firearms.
