Solidarity does not refrain from provocations

August 22 2009

On Saturday, about a hundred representatives of the Solidarity movement held a rally devoted to the events of August 1991. Since the number of protesters was negligible, to somehow draw the attention of the press, activists of Solidarity at the end of the rally, organized at the intersection of Novy Arbat and Novinsky Boulevard, staged an unauthorized rally.

Needless march, which lasted several minutes, ended with the fact that several of its members were detained by riot police. And found the victim - a member of the Bureau of Solidarity, Ilya Yashin, who was allegedly beaten.

As a result, we can say that through the efforts of activists of Solidarity, the Moscow rally was more noticeable than a similar meropritiyaie in St. Petersburg the day before, where were 20 people. Apparently, the march was planned in advance, call it spontaneous clearly impossible.

Despite the fact that the originally scheduled appearance at a rally Garry Kasparov, the event he did not attend. Came to Boris Nemtsov, who allegedly resisted arrest active participants in an unsanctioned rally, but he was not detained.
