Possible presidential candidate from Just Russia party: Oksana Dmitrieva
Economic views: left
Political views: liberal
Oppositional candidates from two other parliament parties are obvious: Zyuganov and Zhirinovsky. I think, the candidate from Just Russia looks more creative.
I think Zhirinovsky would be interesting.

Idiot! Out of the dozen Russians who have posted on here, only one of them was anti-west and he was posting from Canada.

Moscow city hall has permitted a 30-thousand people anti-governmental rally in Saturday in the center of Moscow. Organizers asked the Revolution square, but city hall proposed the Bolotnaya square. Organizers agreed.
Great news!

"For me the white ribbon is a symbol of disagreement with the elections we've just had. Nobody wants to undermine the existing social system, but the democratic society which we have been building all these years does not agree with unfair elections."

According to Vitaly, those who support the campaign do not have to be opposed to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin or President Dmitry Medvedev in the slightest. They just have to want "honest, normal elections".

Meet good old US propaganda!!! US journalists show Greece but talk about Russia... Fox News caught beefing up Moscow oppositional protests with footage from Greece – http://www.facebook.com/RTnews/posts231572643...
I’m from Russia and I say YES some of the oppositional activists hold here currently their actions of protest, but that is actually absolutely peaceful rioting with no RADICAL actions at all – no fighting, no pogroms, no fire, no smoke, no gas and no rubber bullets on Russian police behalf... As usual, being caught by the tail with forgery Fox has already blocked their Greek-Russian video release... Typical US propagandist plan B... Fortunately here Fox video is still available
One again Americans are trying to manipulate people’s minds and to pass the desirable for reality...

Ya right comrade Cassandra no anti-western comments have been posted.
Maybe Uther will be kind enough to explain what a Shiite and what what Sunni is again to you, and how it's not possible to sink the Afghan Navy.

According to some reports, several protests are already planned and organized in several different cities around Russia.

Putin, it has been reported, is extremely angered and upset in how to handle this situation. It is said that his options are limited. Cracking down hard on the protesters is an option, but has many risks.

The wall streeters are just voicing against Big business. No problem. Not A REGIME CHANGE against a government.

We have people demonstrating for various causes everyday. They get their point across, get media attention, and that is it.
The wall streeters have gotten their point across, and it is now just a bunch of commies and anarchists that are left.

The refreshing Arab Spring is giving way to a stormy Islamist Winter.

This week, Islamist candidates in Egypt won the majority of parliamentary seats, and it now appears certain that Egypt’s first democratically elected parliament in six decades will have a substantial Islamist majority.

In November, Moroccans elected an Islamist government; in October it was Tunisia that did the same. Supporters of that new Tunisian government didn’t wait long before demanding social change: They began by putting pressure on universities to segregate men and women.
And Libya’s transitional government, chosen to carry the country forward from its recent revolution, revealed its true colours when the government leader made a point of declaring that the country’s law against polygamy is “contrary to sharia” and will be done away with.

What happened to the liberal uprising that everyone in the West seemed to be cheering on? Instead of the bloggers and Facebook revolutionaries people came to support, Islamist politicians are taking charge throughout the Arab world.

“The Western narrative never matched the reality on the ground,” says Alastair Crooke, one of the few people to correctly predict a strong showing by hardline Islamists in Egypt’s election and the dominance of Sunni Islamists throughout the region.

I always knew it would be like that. Now about Russia - idiots like STA that think removal of Putin will bring anything good are the same idiots that thought arab "spring" was smthing good.

You're wrong. The Occupy movement is protesting against wall street and the corrupt politicians in DC. Wall street corporations and bankers got bailed out, but they still fired millions of US workers and foreclosed on millions of homes across America, while putting trillions of dollars in their own pockets. This is a good reason to protest the corruption in US politics, isn't it?

Does it make any sense to throw American families out of their homes and have millions of homes empty without renters or owners paying monthly payments? NO. Wouldn't it be better to get SOME money from the home owners rather than throw them out on the street and then get ZERO income? YES. This is another good reason to protest against the bailed out bankers, isn't it?

"In this present economic crisis, government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem." - Ronald Reagan and millions of the 99 percent of Americans.

Don't worry about Russia. The economic crisis is right here in America.

Show me which of the Wall Street guys are on the boards of what companies. Speculation, rather legalized gambling, is all that Wall Street is. If you are to blind to see this then look at the last economic crises. Does the US get the blame? Yes. do they deserve most? Yes. Did the Lemmings in Europe get any because they just simply follow suit? Nope. Let's ask the simple question, shall we? Who is propping up the Euro now? That's right boys and girls, the US banks! So before you spout off about the Wall Street people being the ruin of everything maybe you should get educated and see that the people who laid-off people were the CEO's of the companies who blinked and only listened to what Wall Street said and didn't do their own jobs. Wall Street is an easy blame isn't it? Is all their fault, right? Who buys the stock, imaginary characters? Nope! Is the normal everyday person. Educate yourself.
