Support Russian Activists Calling for their Constitutional Rights.

Human rights defenders and opposition political activists have formed a coalition in Russia to defend basic political rights that have been under attack for years. The Strategy 31 protests are organized on the 31st day of every month that has 31 days, with the next one scheduled to take place on March 31st. They take their name from Article 31 of the Russian Constitution, which upholds freedom of peaceful assembly.

By trying to convene peaceful political assemblies in cities throughout Russia while routinely facing obstruction from the authorities, the protesters hope to demonstrate the extent to which basic political freedoms, in this case the right to peaceful assembly, are denied in practice. Previous attempts to convene such rallies have been broken up by police with hundreds of participants, including leading political and human rights figures, taken into detention.

TAKE ACTION NOW to urge Russian President Dmitri Medvedev to grant peaceful protesters the rights guaranteed to them by Article 31 of the Russian Constitution and by binding international human rights treaties.

One note from me personally: Medvedev is not a President, but "President", because he was not elected freely. Russia is not democratic state, absolutely.


Was Google right to delete its google.cn website and redirect users to its Hong Kong site?


I voted YES. Undoubtedly. Fuck Chinese totalitarian authorities!

Another one fascistic action of Russian police.

Ifolder.ru service interrupted by excessive police action.

Today (March 17th 2010) police investigators showed up at the datacenter located at building 5 on 2nd Entuziastov street. They produced a statement entitling them to conduct operational search in order to obtain some evidence located at the iFolder.ru site.

Employees in charge offered to take each and every reasonable step in order to obtain the evidence, and to track a user responsible for uploading the information in question. However, the offer was unexpectedly turned down. Instead, policemen started to insist on seizure and removing of ALL of the Agava's equipment (approx 100 servers) and taking it to police headquarters for the purpose of their own investigation. After some intense debates the seizure was averted. Unfortunately, as an alternative the investigators switched off and sealed all of the iFolder servers and also a number of servers that had no relation to iFolder whatsoever.

Agava considers that unprecedented event as putting in jeopardy and dimming the future of every business in Runet. We are determined to challenge and overcome the excessive and destructive actions we encountered, to protect our customer's interests. We thank our clients in advance for their patience, and for media and other support they provide us with.
