The State Duma has been examining amendments stipulating
the raise of penalties for rallies up to 1.5 million roubles.
The amendments constitute another crime buy the ruling Unite
Russia party against the nation.
A general protest rally against the draft law will take place
on Sunday. The rally has a permission from the Moscow authorities.
The government has to see that no penalties will stop us.
We are not going to speak about some abstract democracy.
We will say #DumaStop. We are against the amendments. And
we will make them listen to us.
