For "marches of dissent" will "picket doomed"

December 15 2006

The big question holding scheduled for December 16 so-called "March of Dissent" organized movement "Other Russia". Organizers of the march genuinely fear that they will not be able to collect the claimed 5,000 people.

According to the "General Newspaper" , almost none of the representatives of participating organizations march was not able to confidently declare the number of its activists, ready to take part in the march. Thus, the adviser of Mikhail Kasyanov on PR Elena Dykun could not say the number of supporters of the People's Democratic Union, guaranteeing that they certainly will not be less than one hundred people. Spokeswoman Irina Hakamada, Konstantin Lazarev was also unable to say how many activists, Irina Hakamada, who may take part in the march, saying that "all supporters of Hakamada and Kasyanov - a single movement of the Russian People's Democratic Union." "We are not commissioned by all present, the same people come. Therefore, what remains in Moscow, people can not predict. Of course, we will give the supporters, they can be 150, but it is only directly supporters who call up, say, send out. A how much maximum can be? Million can be! Well, why not? "- he added, the magazine writes.

In addition, total newspaper drew attention to the fact that many organizations deliberately overstate the number of his supporters, trying to create the effect of critical mass, while denigrating the competition. Thus, "Working Russia" is ready to withdraw from 500 to 1000 people. The representative of the "Labor Russia" Edward Rudyk promises that their movement will be represented at the march, at least 500 activists. In general, the "Working Russia" declared at a rally on the Theater Square thousand. "We have declared 1300, and we cut to 1000. They say that the place where the meeting will not accommodate many people - told us to" Labor Russia ". - The more we did not plan, and then who knows?" We have referring to his organization, but there still are other organizations, "- says" General Newspaper ". The press service of the NBP, but not give exact figures, but was assured that the NBP will be greater than from other participating organizations.

At the same time coordinator of the "Defence" of Moscow and a member of the organizing committee of the march, Oleg Kozlovsky, assessing the potential of his colleagues suggested that "from the NBP and RNDS come about 500 people, AKM will bring 200 persons, and the FMG and Working Russia - for 50-100 people each. Thus, relying on the opinions of the young politician, the total number of marchers from the organizations will be no more than 1500 people. Apparently, the organizers of the march expect their support order 2-2,5 thousands of Muscovites who came to march at the call of the heart.

Meanwhile, on the basis of the practice of holding such events, the number of actual participants of the event is often much less than claimed. For example, the NBP, even at the last march "Antikapitazim-2006" brought the order of 250-300 people. AKM Sergei Udaltsov traditionally does not go beyond 30-50 members. Approximately the same number of participants gathered for their shares FMG and RNDS. So, given that the participation in "March of Dissent" opt out "Yabloko, SPS, KPRF, the movement of" YES ", the movement" For a dignified life and others that are unlikely to rally to this scale, as previously planned, total edition . In short, announced thousands march very easily escalate into a picket dozens of opposition.
