Police detained about ten protesters who had gathered in Gorky Park in the Kazakh city of Almaty on May 1.
A total of some 20 people came to the rally. Several protesters held a poster with the inscription "China has no place on Kazakh soil" in translation, protesting against the government's plans to introduce a visa-free regime with China.
Other protesters demanded a fair investigation of the January events.
The Kazakh police did not explain the reason for the detention of the protesters.
One of the activists who called for the rally was an opposition leader, the head of the Democratic Choice movement banned in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Mukhtar Ablyazov.
