KelKel is a youth resistance movement in the republic of Kyrgyzstan. Translated from the Kyrgyz language, KelKel means "renaissance and shining of the good".
In many of the post-communist revolutions, youth groups have been at the forefront of protests. The most famous of these was Otpor, the young people's movement that helped bring in Vojislav Kostunica in Serbia. In Georgia the movement was called Kmara. In the Ukrainian Orange Revolution, the movement worked under the slogan 'Pora'— "It's Time". It is believed KelKel is based on these movements.
In an attempt to create confusion, a rival group exists, although it is believed to have been formed by allies of President Askar Akayev.
