MOSCOW, May 10 (Itar-Tass) — Some 50 Opposition activists are sitting on the benches near the monument to Kunanbayev in Chistye Prudy in Moscow. "The number of "walkers" has decreased considerably as subway stations opened. "Some went to work or study, and others left to take a nap, wash themselves and bring food," an activist told Itar-Tass.
Several persons are drinking milk; others are playing the guitar. Some were seen doing morning exercises. The local residents who walk their animals in Chistye Prudy every day said the Opposition activists were not disturbing them in any way. Still, passers-by tend not to walk too close to Opposition groups.
Special task force police reportedly left the Chistye Prudy area.
