Moscow anti-war demo 12th of December

Some 400 persons marched in Moscow 12th of December
from Noviy Arbat to Pushkin square, among them 40-50=20
anarchists from all anarchist collectives of Moscow. This was secondmost
biggest anti-war demonstration in Moscow since the beginning
of the Second Chechen campaign, and first one with any significance
since the autumn of 2000. Liberals picked up the day because it is=20
the day of constitution, and also marks the beginning of the first
Chechen campaign 1994 (in order to bring "constitutional order
to Chechnya", so liberals are not too consistent here). Anarchists care
fuck about the constitution, they were celebrating 160th birthday
of Kropotkin instead (it was actually 9th of December, but having=20
less than 4 days of partying makes no sense for someone with such=20
a beard).=20

The hostage crisis in Moscow has=20
put the war back to frame and more and more
people are uncontent with the governement policy, however there are also =
streams in society=20
pushing for more harder line in Chechnya, so opposition to present
kind of war (situation of "no-war", where political power mostly
tries to claim that there is no any war and situation in Chechnya is
under control) is growing from both directions, and it is unclear to =
which=20
direction the society in general will be moving. But at least the
slight activization and growing legitimacy crisis of power has already =
had
positive impact to activity and numbers of anarchist movement in Moscow. =
