Protesters promiseing a million more if it is to be believed.
He promised that the next protest rally would be a "million strong".

Dont forget that only

At least 28,000 people turned out in the capital, according to the Russian interior ministry, but rally organisers said the true number was around 120,000.

In truth the real number was 30,000 not 120,000 as the rally organisers claim.

Mr Navalny, a prominent anti-corruption blogger who was jailed for 15 days over a street protest just after the elections, greeted the crowd with the words "Greetings to the Banderlog from the net hamsters [internet activists]".

More Info On Alexey Navalny

Navalny was a World Fellow at Yale University's "World Fellows Program" aimed at "creating a global network of emerging leaders and to broaden international understanding" in 2010

Whats The World Fellows Program?

The Yale World Fellows Program is a program run by Yale University that seeks to build a network of emerging global leaders and broaden international understanding at Yale. Every year, the program selects approximately fifteen highly accomplished men and women representing a diverse set of countries from throughout the world and brings them to spend a semester at Yale University to explore critical global issues and contribute to international awareness and dialogue within Yale University.

On the occasion of Yale's tercentenary, in 2001, University President Richard C. Levin launched a number of internationalization initiatives aimed at enhancing Yale's global footprint. The Yale World Fellows Program was among these, and it has since emerged as the University's signature international leadership training program – with a steadily growing global reputation for excellence – as well as a popular, broadly participatory program for the entire Yale community. Yale welcomed the first class of World Fellows to New Haven in the fall of 2002, and now boasts more than 150 emerging leaders world wide, representing 74 countries. These include a diversity of committed innovators, from top government officials and members of parliament to on-the-ground activists and investigative journalists to ground-breaking artists and next-generation business executives.

Grigory Yavlinsky Supports Different NGO Groups In Russia

thus building a crucial alliance with environmental NGOs, as well as with human rights organizations, labor unions, women associations, and ethnic minority groups. He was also an uncompromising critic of the Putin government's reforms of the housing and utilities sector and of the energy sector. A number of times, the Yabloko faction in the Duma initiated petitioning campaigns for the resignation of the government. At that time,

* Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, 80, did not attend after all, sending a message of support instead. He later told Moscow Echo radio that Mr Putin should not stand for another term in office

Of course Mikhail Gorbachev didnt attend the rally why you think a traitor who sold russia and the Soviet Union to the west join the protests? Mikhail Gorbachev spent all of his life hiding into western countries knowing if the traitor comes back to russia they would arrest him.

And This last part is qutie an irony I Wonder if it was Sen John McCain who was the Grandfather Frost.

]Saturday's rally in Moscow ended peacefully, with the last speaker a Grandfather Frost (Russian Santa Claus) figure who wished citizens of a "free Russia" a Happy New Year.

Free Russia Then What? Turn Russia Into Georgia 2.0?

BBC Lies and Cliams That there is no Leader
However, one of the main problems for the opposition is that there is no single leader able to unite it, our correspondent adds.

Makes You wonder if Sen John McCain NGO Group IRI is behind them as i explained in my other thread
The Thread On the IRI

Finally Who were the protesters?
A total of 22 speakers were lined up for the Moscow rally, with rival opposition figures addressing a crowd which mixed liberals with nationalists. Ah So the Communists now are the liberals and the Nazi parties are the fair right nationalists ah ok got it western media thanks for the hint.

So the next time you support such rallies search on the leaders and on who they are.

so other russian oligarchs are trying to bring putin out of the grand scheme of things, probably for business, while I assume putin is trying to keep russia, russia, if you know what I mean. the divide in russian politics might be whether to befriend the west or not at this juncture with Iran and what not..
