“Fair Vote for Russia” rally in Berlin on February 4, 2012


A solidarity march for “Fair Vote for Russia” will take place on Saturday, February 4. Russian citizens and their Berlin supporters, including representatives of German NGOs and politicians, will take part in this action.The demonstrators have a number of demands for the Russian government: they are protesting against electoral fraud during the Duma elections of December 4, 2011; they are calling for the liberalization of Russian electoral law and the release of all political prisoners. The demonstration will begin at 14:00 at the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations (Ostausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft) at Breiten Straße 29, pass the Russian Embassy (Unter den Linden 63) and move on to the Brandenburg Gate, where the demonstration will end at 18:00.This action is a continuation of the demonstrations of December 10 and 24, at which thousands of people in Russia and around the world protested on a massive scale against the electoral fraud which took place during the parliamentary elections on December 4, 2011. These protests resulted in the creation of the international movement “Fair Vote for Russia”, in which groups in 30 countries are involved.

We invite all members of the press to attend the march and inform the public about this action for democracy in Russia. We ask representatives of NGOs, citizens’ initiatives, politicians and civil society in Germany to support our action.
