Red Marches to Be Held over May Holidays

Red Marches to Be Held over May Holidays

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation plans to hold a series of rallies and marches in downtown Moscow over May holidays.

      The information about May meetings was announced by Moscow city Communist Party Committee head Valery Rashkin. He said the Communist Party has already coordinated rallies on May 1 and May 9 with the Moscow City Hall. 

      On May 1, the party's supporters will march from Pushkinskaya Square along Tverskaya Street to Teatralnaya Square. It should be pointed out that May the First is a Russia's national Labour Day, which was widely celebrated in the Soviet Union. The celebration included marches of many thousands of people, dressed in red clothes and holding red flags and slogans in support of Soviet power. Now the holiday has completely lost its communist shade and is considered as just another day-off for Russian people. But the Communist Party still holds Red Marches this day.

      On May 9 (Victory Day) they will march from Oktyabskaya to Lubyanka Square.

      Another communist action will be held this Saturday (April 7) throughout the country against the deployment of a NATO transit center in Ulyanovsk with an estimated turnout of up to 2 million people.

      In spite of some left-wing intonations of the coming rallies, their main slogans are still against Putin, after his victory in March 4 presidential elections. And this is what unites communists with so-called "white opposition", which active work started in early December 2011.
