Migrants Ask Moscow Mayor to Cancel Nationalist March

On Friday, November 2, a Federation of Mirgants in Russia asked Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin to cancel Sunday’s planned “Russian March,” the Federation's head Muhammad Amin Majumder told the press. "The very name of that event represents a threat to multi-ethnic Russia,” he said.

      The Mayor of Moscow gave the green light for this year’s Russian March to be held on November 4 - the Puplic Unity Day state holiday in Russia.

      "Migrants also enjoy this holiday and like to go out, but it seems to be dangerous for them,” Majumder says.

      The march is planned to be split into two parts, setting the limit of 20,000 people at one event and 10,000 at the other.

      Not only migrants but also public rights activists previously asked for the event to be banned, but the Moscow authorities felt they have no grounds to take such action. The rally's organizers are warned about the full responsibility for any violations of the law.
