Civil Protest in Russia, yesterday and today (16 May, Glasgow)

Repressive policies, political prisoners
and trends in non-violent resistance

Speaker: Elena SANNIKOVA

in Russian with interpretation

♦ 5 to 6.45 pm, Thursday, 16 May at Main Seminar Room, Central and East European Studies, Lilybank Gardens, University of Glasgow (Gilmorehill campus) ♦

Over the past 10 years, the level of repression has been steadily rising in Russia. Several hundred prisoners of conscience and political prisoners are today imprisoned or detained in the country, a figure comparable to that in the late Soviet Union. Elena Sannikova, a veteran of Soviet dissent, will speak about the forms of moral resistance developed by civil society to withstand the repressive policies of the present.
