PostSubject: Rioting across Russia   Sun Feb 01, 2009 1:00 pm

Quote :
MOSCOW (Map, News) - Thousands of protesters rallied against the government in cities across Russia on Saturday, reflecting mounting anger over the nation's economic woes.

The protests, among the largest yet, posed a challenge to the Kremlin, which faced little threat from the fragmented opposition during the years of oil-driven boom.

The largest march took place in the far eastern port of Vladivostok, where about 3,000 people denounced the Cabinet's decision to increase tariffs on imported cars. Some shouted slogans urging Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to resign.

There is a general feeling across the world that people are being asked to pay very dearly to preserve the positions of the hyper wealthy people who have benefited from the boom and for whom the system seems to be geared. Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Iceland, Greece, France, Ireland (we were among the first with the OAP and education demonstrations). There have been occupations of factories in the US too.

Government is on the point of falling in Madagascar after a week of demonstrations, and for some reason the US seems very worried about it.


Plenty of reasons for the US not to want a democracy in Madagascar...
Main strategic Southern Indian Ocean naval base, satellite tracking station, off shore oil and on shore gold.
