Moscow, Russia, 31/08/2010.
Riot police drag a demonstrator through the media scrum as they break up an opposition protest in central Moscow and arrest around 70 people. Opposition activists hold regular demonstrations on the 31st day of the month, protesting against restrictions on the freedom of assembly, which is supposedly protected by article number 31 of the Russian constitution. So far the demonstrations have always been banned, with hundreds arrested since the campaign began on New Year’s Eve 2009.
