We condemn the decision of the Moscow authorities to ban a legally planned demonstration on the anniversary of the murders of Stanislaw Markelov and Anastasia Baburowa.
The pretext given was that the demo was announced "too early", but we are aware that this is just another attempt to limit public assembly in Moscow. We do not recognize the legitimacies of the authorities who would tell us when and where we can gather and we support the decision of the comrades in Moscow to hold the demonstration despite the ban.
To hell with the government, murders, supporters of murders, usurpers of power!
We call on people to make protests in support of this demonstration and to commemorate this tragic anniversary.
