"There is no one to vote for. Nothing we can do. I've been fighting for fair elections for 20 years but I've never seen anything like this. Young people's votes are being stolen. We have no rights. Every day I wake up knowing that I have no rights. I feel ashamed of living here."
"My son was arrested for protesting and he is being tortured by the police. He was forced to plead guilty for things like sports training and walks in the wood." #MoscowProtest #MoscowElectionCrisis
"It is obvious that the independent candidates would not be registered for the elections. It is more important now to demand freedom for those arrested, protest the police brutality and fabricated criminal cases." #moscowProtest #moscowelectioncrisis

Today, Russia: The first arrest: woman in St.Petersburg arrested after 5min of standing alone with a poster. Mass protests banned. The Kremlin suppresses protests against unfair elections. Over the last 3 weekends over 3,000 detained. #MoscowElectionsCrisis #MoscowProtest
These brave people in Moscow and St.Petersburg demand their constitutional rights: the right to vote for candidates to the local government that were not pre-selected by the Kremlin. If arrested, they will face 8-14 years in prison.

This is the root of the “lone wolf” radicalization problem we are experiencing in the US. The shooting is also used as a distraction from the current events that need to be hidden from the public. See 👇🏼#ElPaso #ElPasoShooting
Here is a chart of using “lone wolf”, by an alt-right group leader. See a thread with the breakdown of a shooting from the last year. Same thing here. #ElPaso #ElPasoShooting

#MoscowElectionCrisis #MoscowProtest Second Saturday in a row, unsanctioned protests in Moscow gather tens of thousands. 1,400 arrested last Sat. Opposition leaders are in jail. Today, one of the last leaders still free, is detained by police. RT please. #RussiaWillBeFree
Videos of people being detained in Moscow, about an hour ago.
#MoscowElectionsCrisis #MoscowProtest Watching live streaming from Moscow: The protest is unsanctioned so people are just "going for a walk" so there are not posters or flags; a massive crowd walking in their own town on a sunny day and thousands of policemen with batons.
