Large Anti-Putin Rally in Moscow

Thousands join Moscow anti-Putin rally
  • Russians march for freedom while the European and American governments kiss Putin's ass.

Tens of thousands of people marched across central Moscow today in the first major protest in three months against President Vladimir Putin - a sign of the opposition's strength despite the Kremlin's efforts to muzzle dissent.
Leftists, liberals and nationalists mixed up with students, teachers, gay activists and others on the capital's tree-lined boulevards, chanting "Russia without Putin!" and "We are the government!".
The protest remained peaceful as about 7,000 police officers stood guard along the route of the march

Major Anti-Putin Protest In Moscow

The demonstration showed that opposition sentiment has remained strong, despite the government's efforts to stem the protest movement that had fielded more than 100,000 people to the streets last winter in a series of massive protests against Putin's election to a third presidential term.

Putin has taken a tougher course against the opposition since his inauguration in May with a series of new repressive laws, arrests and interrogation of activists.

In August, a court handed two-year prison sentences to three members of the punk band Pussy Riot for performing an anti-Putin song inside Moscow's main cathedral. Some activists today carried big balloons with balaclava masks painted on - the band's trademark headwear.
