Strategy 31 democracy demonstrations in Moscow

by Cheezaki

Strategy-31 is a spontaneous civic movement which, since 31 July 2009, has regularly held protest meetings in defence of freedom of assembly in Russia. They are held on the 31st day of every month which has 31 days. In Moscow they take place in Triumfalnaya Square. They are intended to both promote and defend the right to hold peaceful demonstrations, as enshrined in article 31 of the Russian Constitution

There was a demonstration in Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square on 31 March against the restrictions on the freedom of assembly. The 82-year old head of the Moscow Helsinki group, Lyudmila Alexeeva, received a severe blow to the head that day. Eduard Limonov, one of the leaders of the Other Russia coalition, was put in a holding cell, as were Konstantin Kosyakin, coordinator of the opposition movement Oborona [Defence], and 51 others. For the human rights activists and members of the opposition that was how the day ended. However, on 31 May they will be demonstrating once again in defence of Article 31 of the Russian Constitution. This states that “Citizens of the Russian Federation have the right to assemble peacefully without arms, hold meetings, rallies and demonstrations, marches and pickets”.
