Don’t touch the old woman

In Uncategorized on December 23, 2010 by grahamharrowell

One of my Russian sources tells me that while the Belarus militia decided to exempt an “old woman” from a beating their Russian counterparts treat everyone equally. hence, at a demo organised by the communist party in Novosibirsk against the withdrawal of free buses passes yetserday, a number of 70 year olds were arrested when they wouldn’t disperse. Standing outside the town hall in temperatures of minus 40C (these are tough people, a bit of snow doesn’t keep them at home) they refused to leave when the mayor declined to give in to their demands.

Once in custody some needed medical treatment but eventually they were all kicked out at four o’clock in the morning. Presumably after the last bus had stopped running.
