Live Webcast From Moscow Protest Against Putin

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Time to add another focal point to the ever larger matrix of geopolitical chokepoints. As this live webcast from Moscow shows, where several hundred protestors are shouting "Russia Without Putin" things in Russia, in the aftermath of the recently completed parliamentary elections which saw Putin's party lose substantial popular support, are heating up. Will the government respond, as it sometimes tends to do, with a crack down on protesters? Stay tune and find out.

 

And some more from BBC:

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has played down his party's losses at Sunday's parliamentary election as inevitable for a party in power.

 

Thousands of police and interior troops are on alert in Moscow, after one of the biggest opposition rallies in the city centre for years.

 

Police made 300 arrests as protesters chanted "Russia without Putin".

 

Among those held was Alexei Navalny, a top anti-corruption campaigner and fierce critic of Mr Putin.

 

A counter-demonstration by Putin supporters was held beside Red Square on Tuesday amid reports that opposition supporters were planning a new protest.

 

Observers from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) say Sunday's election was slanted in favour of Mr Putin's party, United Russia.

 

United Russia won the election with just under 50% of the vote, a sharp drop in its support.

 

Correspondents say the result reflects Mr Putin's declining popularity ahead of his bid for the Russian presidency in March.

The CIA will be stoked for this. 

America's endgame involves taking the Arab Spring to Tehran, Islamadbad, Moscow and Beijing, and having the new middle classes of consumerist Americanised zombies take out anti-American regimes (that happen to be owed a lot of benjamins) like Putin, the CPC, etc — and replace them with Facebook-friendly CFR-endorsed placemen who will be happier taking inflated Benny dollars for their debt, and adhering more closely to edicts out of Washington.

That way, Americas free lunch can go on forever.

The sad truth, though, is that Putin, the CPC and Ahmadinejad enjoy deep underlying support, precisely because they oppose America's free lunch economics, and American imperial foreign policy.

Enjoy your fail, Kissinger, Panetta, Gates, Cheney, etc.

yeah, these protests start popping just after Putin takes a hard line stance against ZATO aggression in Syria and Iran.  what a surprise.

American foreign policy will do everything to keep its free lunch— taking resources and productivity from the rest of the world for paper/digital Benny dollars and junk AAAA treasury bonds.

They will start as many wars and conflicts as it takes, destroy as much as it takes, and trample over as many nations as it takes.

For all Putin's flaws (there are a lot) he stands against American imperial looting.

major war shapping up in the ME, and Putin seems ready to defy ZATO...  Parts of the Russian fleet are already anchored off Syria, and Russia recently delivered anti ship missiles to Syria.  when this fuse detonates, it will consume much of the ME... and for the first time, ZATO will face real military opposition.  in a word, ugly.

I agree.  There is corruption at the core of any power structure.  But here in America, the corruption is more insidious, more deceptive, more covert....in a word, it is more developed.   And therefore, more dangerous. 

The average Russian is highly aware of corruption and deception, and so the politicos have dropped pretenses, to a certain extent.  The average American is still living in the Truman Show without a clue. 

The first step is admitting we have a problem.

Russian will come out of this thing in far better shape than America.  And forget about Red October.  That will never happen in Russia again.  There is more antisemitism in Russia than anywhere on the planet. 

I think Russia today is a picture of where we might be in the near future.  They have reformed their education system, and no longer subsidize white collar students.  They are pushing technical schools.  They are accumulating gold.   The govt is advised by the official religion of the state on all matters of moral consequence.  They are focusing on agriculture, taking back their farms and processing industries from the Germans and French.  Their foreign policy is defensive more than aggressive.

the russian bear always was defensive in its mode of thinking.  the cold war was a unnecessary "war" and the only ones who benefited were the military industrial complex.....the russians never trusted the west and for good measure it would seem.  to prove the point, take the russian methods of delegation of authority in any military area. that is the point. there wasn't any.  if the top man was not around, there was confusion because there was no one to give the order etc. take a ship for instance. the only person that actually knew how to run a russian ship was the captain. there was no cross training like there is in our navy. the russian military was not as dangerous as they were portrayed.  the entire russian military was designed to be defensive. to wit, how many carriers did the russians ever have. case in point.. how many world ocean running task forces do we have?

More democracy out of Russia these days than in the US. At least their media still reports on inconvenient events. Ours just sweeps them under the rug and airs another episode of snooki. It's childish to say that the US is 20 years away from being like Russia when it is clear to me and anyone else that we are just as bad. These vermin have taken over the world, not just individual countries. Or maybe it's the same as it ever was and the global communication sphere/blogging/tweeting/etc is delivering this horseshit to average Joe's on a daily basis unlike ever before. Either way, people all over the world are getting fed the fuck up with it and will deal with it in their own cultural way. Some will go religious, some will go fascist and some may even evolve into a more free and open society. Critical mass is fast approaching though - on a global scale.

While a few (Communists?) protest Putin in Russia whose foreign policy Alexander Solzhenitsyn actively supported, Jack D. Douglas, a retired University of California professor, issues dire warnings to Americans and the world of the consequences of continuing The U.S. 'Secret War Against Iran. Here are excerpts:

The Secret U.S. War Against Iran, with massive support from the U.S. colonies of the U.K. and E.U., is now escalating very rapidly. [This War is a secret only among ignorant Americans cut off from world news. The rest of the world knows about it and Muslims know the terrifying details of what the U.S. has done.] Almost every day there are new, very dangerous attacks on Iran to which Iran is responding strongly in the firm belief that bowing to the Empire would produce only more attacks, very much as bowing to Hitler at Munich did. …

 It is almost certain the U.S. is using this [top-secret U.S. RQ-170 Stealth Sentinel Spy Drones] and other spy planes to map all of Iran for attacks. …

The Iranians have learned from two centuries of modern attacks on them by Western Empires and Three U.S. Secret Wars Against Them [in 1953 when the U.S. and U.K. secretly overthrew the new Iranian democracy to impose their oil friend, the Shah, and his terrorist secret police – SAVAK, the U.S. secret support for Hussein's Iraq attack on Iran in the 1980's, and now this protracted U.S. War] that they must fight or become slaves of terrorist puppets. They are now part of the Great Awakening of Islam that is sweeping the vast one and a half billion people Islamic World. They are uniting more and more with Turkey, Egypt and other nations such as Lebanon and Palestine against the Empire the Iranians call "The Great Satan" for obvious reasons, having suffered so horrifically for half a century from U.S. secret wars against them. …

They have the means and appear to have the will to fight to close down the Persian Gulf Oil exports to the world, about 40% of the total, if the U.S. War becomes a total war to the death….

The American people have no idea what a grave danger this Secret U.S. War is to them any more than they had the slightest idea of the realties in Korea, Vietnam, Palestine and the whole Middle East for a half century, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, China, Somalia, and on and on. They are the complete Dupes of the U.S. Secret, Corporate Controls over the Big Corp. Media reporting.

We are now in a situation of grave danger in which a massive Middle Eastern Oil War could erupt at any time… Such a war will produce a Global Financial Implosion which the U.S. may not survive in-tact.

Hello, comrades - greetings from Moscow. The shit happening here is a big show - in the morning they have brought so many policemen to the center of Mosow that it seems now that every 2nd man in the street is a policeman. They gather stupid schoolers giving them free from school lessons tomorrow - give them flags and stuff and use them as cannon fodder for surprised small amount of opposition, aiming to scary big amount of grey crown watching TV. Also they bring some old men and generally any one who are ready to support eventhough Hitler just for 50$- and also give them flags and stuff, letting them crow "Putin is a good man etc.etc.". So this funny shit is passed on national TV. This is a big SHOW. BUT Livejournal is being hacker attached since begining of December. The same shit happens with many free information resources. And our local stockmarket fell dowm dramatically despite of the rest of the world flat growth. 

Below is picture I've made this morning in Moscow - long conwoy of police trucks heading to the center of Moscow:

This is all a theatrical device by which Putin's group is managing perceptions: the loss of seats being the device by which they choose to invoke the simulacra of 'democracy'...and the protests an ancilliary sideshow...as usual, Russia playing catchup to the sophisticated spinners of reality in the west.

There are no "real" events anymore, only staged simulations of those 'situations'  via which the coopted media are instructed to activate the correct sequence of word memes which will resonate in the imaginations of the bemused netizens of the blogosphere and the trogdolyte 'trad' media the correct sequence of shadow puppet manoeuvres which will leave everyone exhausted but somehow satiated with the complete absence of understanding about what is really going on.

Trust nothing but your own intuition, and that which you can reach out and touch(but remember to discount the fiat in your wallet heavily!)

I happen to like Putin & Medvedev and wish them luck. They are clearly exceptionally more intelligent than the tools elected here in the U.S.through the democratic popularity contest. There are some that do and then there are those who can only critique. I even give Sarkozy and Merkel credit for having the fortitude to continue to work on solution under immense pressure. A failure would throw the poorest among them into lives with little hope. I don't give a damn about China and see that we empower a nation which will someday turn their weapons against us. The Aussies seem to love them and would love to bitch slap that Aussie fuck on Bloomberg Asia who is such a Chinese troll. Hate the show btw.

You gentlemen don't understand the issue quite well - the problem is not Putin itself - the problem is his team - there is a big putin family usurpating the power in the country (resourses and main facilities). You ask what is the alternative? There is no good alternative. People here should choose from two evils - grey putin future or possibly good future without him.

Today it is calm. Everybody waiting for the weekend - the recent parlament elections were performed too dirty and it became obvious to many people -  even to "gray" crowd that usually flows with the main stream. Everyday here you can have a lot of facts of election manipulation. You know the only thing to stop massive protest is...bad weather in Moscow. Goverment keeps on stupid demonstrational steps like schoolmen and students with drums - really stupid show.
