Many people turned out on December 11 to protest the recent Russian elections, widely seen as fraudulent. Some estimates are that 50000 people turned out, others that say half that number. Count them yourself:
There are more photos here and video and, of course, Facebook. These protests began about December 6 and, like all the Occupy events, have snowballed. I don’t think people will be camping out in Red Square in December but hopeful observers say that these demonstrations may force Putin to actually relate to the mass of Russians. It is worth noting that, like other Occupy protests, the immediate concerns are local — in Russia, elections and housing. But the general sense of unrest is global.
