Residents walk on the shore of Lake Balkhash at dusk, in front of the city's 1930s-built copper smelter owned by Kazakhmys copper mining company in the Kazakh city of Balkhash June 14, 2012. The demands of local workers have become impossible to ignore for the companies responsible for Kazakhstan's colossal Soviet-era plants and the towns that grew up around them. One thing must be avoided at all costs: a scenario such as the riots that followed a seven-month labour dispute in the oil town of Zhanaozen in December. Picture taken June 14, 2012.
