Nonviolence Inc. Requests Russian Authorities to Release Protestors

Moscow police arrested more than 1,300 people Saturday in a violent crackdown on anti-Kremlin protests. Following this incident, Nonviolence Incorporation published a statement to demand the release of protestors in Russia. Here come some parts of the statement:

“Nonviolence Incorporation is deeply saddened to see hundreds of Russian nationals arrested for practicing their rights to free speech and protest. We condemn such inhuman behaviors by the Russian authorities and demand the immediate release of these protestors. We also call on the Russian government to listen to its people and end the cycle of crackdowns and torture in this country. According to reports, the protests took place after the Russian government blocked some 30 opposition candidates from appearing on the city council ballot.

At the end, Nonviolence Incorporation demands the Russian authorities and the opposition parties to be vigilant of the consequences of their actions, as they could jeopardize the country’s security and stability.”
