Navalny's Tambov staff denied permission to support Moscow protests
TAMBOV. Aug 9 (Interfax) - The Tambov administration has denied permission to hold a 50-person picket supporting Moscow protests on August 10 initiated by the local staff of opposition politician Alexei Navalny, staff coordinator Diana Rudakova told Interfax on Friday.
In her words, the staff twice asked for permission to hold pickets in various parts of the Tambov center, and both applications were turned down.
"The Leninsky District Court has dismissed our claim. We will file an appeal but time is lost, so we have asked our supporters to hold one-man pickets around the regional center," Rudakova said.
Numerous festivals called "Good Saturday" have been urgently organized in Tambov. They will be held across the city until October 10, Rudakova said, adding that their purpose was to prevent protests from happening.
On August 2, the Moscow government approved rallies due on Academician Sakharov Avenue August 10 and 11 to support disqualified Moscow City Duma candidates. The rallies are expected to have a 100,000 turnout each.
Similar actions were requested by coordinators of Navalny's staffs in regions, including Krasnodar, Tyumen, and Yekaterinburg.
