So what change will this make? Does congregating really do anything? Has it ever?

I agree the man's actions are reprehensible, but to arrest him is unconstitutional. He's done more harm to himself already, made himself look like a total fool.
MOSCOW — Protesters held demonstrations throughout Russia on Saturday, offering largely subdued, but pointed criticism of the government’s economic policies as the country continues to sink deeper into an economic morass.

The job of the mainstream media is to paint protesters as anarchists, crazy, and as negatively as possible. The only reason they would ever cover a story like that is if some of them were throwing bricks at police forces.
In any case, even if they did get widespread attention, protesting the economy seems like an exercise in futility. If instead of protesting these one million people decided to get together and help one another out then maybe they would get what they wanted.
So true. I always hear people saying that we have to "wake up" and take up arms against out gov, etc. etc. My reply is ok, you go first. Try taking up arms against your gov.
Protesting? Just yelling and screaming and hoping something happens?
Try helping each other, bring food to your neighbors, grow your own food, have the community pitch in and help people who are losing their homes.
It's easier to yell at your gov, and blame your gov. What about being "proactive".
Instead of trying to create a riot or a bloody revolution for no gain, lets try to help each other, become self sufficient.
I'll tell you if thing do get really bad, I'll be learning how to be self sufficient, self reliant while people here are taking up arms?
Don't get angry, get smart.
