RUSSIA, Moscow. The traditional antiwar protest held every Thursday for
four years now by the Committee of Anti-War Action in Moscow’s Pushkin
Square, was broken up today by Moscow police. Three protesters were
taken to the nearest police station.

One of the protesters told PRIMA News that once the protest had begun,
the police said that the permission to hold the protest given by the
prefecture had been cancelled. Nevertheless, the 10-15 people who had
gathered by 19.00 took up their placards and continued the protest.
About ten minutes later, the police arrested Yevgeny Frumkin, Yelena
Batenkova and Mikkail Kriger and took them to the Tversky internal
affairs department (OVD).

A duty policeman there confirmed to PRIMA that three protesters had been
arrested and explained that permission had been annulled by the Moscow
Central District Prefecture. He also said that the arrested would be
questioned and then released.

The Russian Constitution and federal legislation guarantees the right of
citizens to freely congregate and hold peaceful street protests, with
prior notice given to local authorities. The issuing of any sort of
permission for the holding of such protests is not stipulated in

Sufi resistance? What's with the fascist sig line on Rain's profile?

Either way, that's a bad thing.
