Anti-war committee organised picket last saturday, there was some 30 people.
A little bit of everyone as usual, 4 maoists with red book in the air was
standing next to 4 drumming buddhists... some liberals raised Chechen flag.
Few anarchists were trying to fit in the middle of everything.

Trots had declared that in sunday there would have been big "workers
anti-war demonstration". However, they screwd up with the offical
paperworks, and anarchists had to organise the demo instead, since it was
already advertised in the anarchist picket of previous saturday (which
gathered 110 people being the biggest anarchist demo this far - of course
only small fraction of participators were anarchists). Wether trots were
just too wildly optimist or was their purpose to cheat money via ISWoR
network, will most likely remain unsolved. Some 40 anarchists and others
were in the demo, which would have been better organised (people are getting
tired after 6 weeks of weekly demos). It is not really known yet how big is
the interest of Zaschita trade union, which trots declared to at least
partly support their initiative, to engage itself to anti-war actions. I
still have weak hope that they roam with masses to Moscow some day to save
anarchists from the liberals;-)

There is currently 4 different initiatives against presidential elections.
"Against all parties" by people behind Mailradek supports voting, but
"voting against all parties" - according to the constitution, if "against
all" gets most votes in the area, election must be reorganised. Some
liberals have "No-movement", line of argumentation is bit unknown to me.
"New leftists" around Garliski will organise a demo next tuesday. And at
last, anarchists around Dikobraz and other groups or circles of friends have
their own line of argumentation.
