    Ukraine Riots: “Involuntary ejaculation of fire”

    "This is the natural act of desperate people who are sick of all politicians and who are not ready to accept the state of emergency. This is not a revolutionary act of the people, this is not parliamentary masturbation – simply an involuntary ejaculation due to long lasting abstinence from sensible and purposeful actions."

    Artist, Pyotr Pavlensky nailed his scrotum with a nail to the cobblestones of Red Square. The action carried out on the Day of Police, which is celebrated on November 10.

    In a statement he released about the artist’s action goal, called “Fixation”, he noted that it can be regarded as a “metaphor of apathy, political indifference and fatalism of the modern Russian society.”

    …Full Statement Release…
    On November 10, the Day of Police and FSB Officials holiday, at 13.00 in Moscow will host the art action called “Fixation”. A naked man sitting on the Red Square and watch nailed to the Kremlin’s pavement, testicles.

    The action can be seen as a metaphor of the apathy, political indifference and fatalism of modern Russian society. There is not a bureaucratic lawlessness to deprive society of opportunities to act and commit to their defeats and losses harder than those as the power authorities beating us to the Kremlin pavement, creating a lethargic army of idols, patiently waiting for their fate

    Now, when power turns the country into one big open area, robbing people and ferrying financial flows on the growth and enrichment of the police and other law enforcement agencies, society condones tyranny and forgets about their numerical advantage, its inaction brings the triumph of a police state.

    symbolized the “existence of a person in a repressive legal system, where any movement causes a severe reaction of the law, piercing into the body of an individual.

He sewed his mouth shut and stood up at the Kazan Cathedral with a poster that read “Message of Pussy Riot was famous action replay of Jesus Christ (Matthew 21:12 -13)”:http://grani.ru/Politics/Russia/activism/m.199214.html

    In Moscow there was a coordinated march in support of the “swamp prisoners” and all political prisoners, Organizers of the rally were the Committee of Protest Action and the Committee on May 6. Attended by five to ten thousand people, according to various estimates, who marched from Pushkinskaya Square on Passion, Petrovsky, Rozhdestvensky Boulevard to the intersection of Turgenev Square with Academician Sakharov Prospect. The rally planned at the end of the march was not performed.

    Participants of the rally carried posters with slogans in support of the defendants in the “Marsh case,” the activists of Greenpeace, the arrested people on the platform of “Prirazlomnaja” and convicted members of the group Pussy Riot. Alexei Navalny and Peter Ofitserova, who received a suspended sentence in the case of “Kirovlesa”, also participated in the action. 

    As reported on Twitter by the activist movement “Solidarity”, Nadezhda Mityushkina, the night before the March unknown persons pasted posters along the route with a slashed portrait of Navalny and the words “Dangerous for the Homeland.” By the beginning of the action the posters were removed.

    Before the March, press services of the Moscow Central Board of Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that the Opposition rally would be monitored by about three thousand law enforcement officers. At the entrance to the event in the Pushkinskaya area checkpoints were carried out at 40 stationary frame metal detectors. Another set of 20 frames detectors were at the large entrance of Putinkovsky side street and also on Strastnoy Boulevard.

    In connection with the procession of the opposition, for a few hours, was limited vehicle traffic in the area of the Boulevad Ring.

In the 90’s it was hard, but enthusiasts could do what interests them, engage in something good. And now it can not be done: there is a struggle just of enthusiasts. We are only given opportunities to understand all the good things that we’re trying to do, is not necessary and harmful. “

Signatures collected are not interesting, as they actually will make an impact? “. She say while holding a placard that reads: “Crackdown = Degradation” and a portrait of her son.

    14.32 as usual on this route of civil activist demonstrations, the protesters are divided into two streams, on the sides of the Boulevard are the right liberal wing, flowing into another alley-the left. On the Left Alley almost no empty space: there are several activists of the “left front”, “Rainbow Alliance” and other movements.
