June 9 March of Dissent Approved

We are very happy to report that, with a little help from Germany, the authorities in St. Petersburg have discovered the Russian constitution. They have officially approved the June 9 March of Dissent that will move through the center of the city on a route similar to that of the March 3 rally attacked by the police. The March of Dissent begins at 5pm local time near the main concert hall.

Activists in St. Petersburg have begun a poster campaign in and around the bases that house the riot police and their families. The fliers ask the police not to allow themselves to be used as weapons against their own people.
