Opposition Rally on March 31 Is Banned in Moscow

Moscow officials have rejected a request by a group of opposition activists to hold a rally on March 31.

      Opposition rallies on the last day of each month that has 31 days are traditionally held by several opposition groups led by firebrand writer and politician Eduard Limonov in order to support Article 31 of the Russian Constitution - the citizens' freedom of assembly. Recently the Moscow government has started to turn down such requests saying the rallies' organizers and participants had repeatedly violated rules of holding public actions. However, it didn't stop the protesters from holding unauthorised actions.

      This time the city's top security official, Alexei Mayorov, said the rally organizers had not been granted permission to hold the protest as they had violated the law at previous demonstrations.
