MOSCOW, March 2 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s opposition will hold a rally for social rights in Moscow on Saturday.
The action had been initiated by Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov, who was placed under home arrest, and State Duma legislator Ilya Ponomarev (A Just Russia faction) as the first stage in the creation of a new opposition coalition at the elections to the Moscow City Duma in autumn 2014.
The organizers of the action coordinated the route of the rally with the mayor’s office.
“We agreed with the proposal of the mayor’s office to hold the action from Sretensky Boulevard to Sakharov Prospect, where the rally will take place,” he said. “The rally will begin at 13:00 Moscow time,” a member of the organizing committee, Yevgeniya Tretyakova, told Itar-Tass.
The main slogans of the rally – No tariff growth! Fulfil obligations on overhaul repair in the city! Put city land under citizens’ control!
The chairman of the Yabloko party, Sergei Mitrokhin, told Itar-Tass of his intention to participate in the rally.
The Republican Party of Russia – People’s Freedom Party, RPR-PARNAS, decided to refrain from the action being concerned over “abundance of red flags.”
On Friday the organizing committee said the action will ban the use of flags of representatives of sexual minority and nationalists.
A member of the Opposition Coordinating Council, Konstantin Krylov, described this decision as “unfriendly.”
The liberally minded opposition that expressed dissatisfaction with restriction on flags display also questioned its participation.
