October 23 2008

In Moscow, held a press conference the organizers of the "Day of national anger", during which became known slogans with which the protesters will leave on Saturday at Triumph Square, and the reason for refusal to participate in the rally CPRF and Yabloko.

As stated in his speech one of the pioneers of the "Day of Anger" Sergei Udaltsov, the main aim of the action has to overcome disconnection between social movements and political organizations, and such a consolidation in the global financial crisis is simply necessary.

Actually, to overcome the disunity among civic activists and politicians founders of "popular anger" and get stung. First, Karin Clement befell Garry Kasparov, who said about the rally on October 25 as a very important rehearsal of joint action in the run-up scheduled for December "March of Dissent". In response, the Union Coordination Council of Russia (ACS) issued a statement which acknowledged that their organization to supporters of Kasparov is rather critical. And if it works with politicians, it is only with the left and at the regional level.

In the end, after lengthy discussions, the parties managed to agree that neither the FMG, nor the National Assembly will not claim to be the organizers of the rally. But the sediment remained. Especially after it turned out the circumstances for not participating in the forthcoming action FMG in St. Petersburg and the "Apple" with the Communist Party in Moscow.

The city on the Neva River, writes newspaper Novaya Gazeta, a scandal erupted over participation in the Day of national anger the local branch of United Civil Front, which include the official level steering committee activities for some reason nobody wanted. Organizers of the St. Petersburg from Moscow, called the leader of the Russian AKM Sergei Udaltsov, who acted as mediator in this matter, even mentioned that "for these purposes have already allocated the money." However, the maximum that the St. Petersburg leftists become generous, so just let the activists to rally UCF in private. "Where are the funds which were discussed, and whether the boy is not clear," notes the newspaper Novaya Gazeta.

In Moscow and worse. The organizers have sent invitations to all left political parties, including Communists and Yabloko. And they seem to be even initially agreed. The leader of Yabloko, Sergei Mitrokhin even announced as a participant in today's press conference. However, none of the representatives of the aforementioned parties, journalists are not seen, but their lack Sergei Udaltsov explained the ideological nature. According to him, after having been announced antiluzhkovskie slogans, these parties declined to participate in the Day of Wrath. Sergei Udaltsov noted that this event will be a litmus test for the parties: who is ready no matter what exit to the area and who is bound by any obligations.

In spite Udaltsov director of the Institute of collective action, Karin Clement stressed the paramount importance of social movements to political parties. "Political parties are usually either ignore social initiatives, or try to manipulate us, the PR for our actions" - outraged K. Clement. In this case, clearly inspired fear Clement agreed on the presence of a stock of flags of political parties and movements. According to her, media problem of social groups as compared to the politicians that they have no leaders, some clearly recognizable differences, so for the journalists and the public seems quite problematic to understand exactly who the rally.So that the abundance of party panels at the rally can really play with the social activists of a cruel joke, putting to the fore is the political element of the action.
