Libertarianism in Russia: Conquerring The Bear

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Political system in Russia is very monopolized, but so as Libertarian Party cannot win the seats in State Duma we try to take advantage of any available opportunities winning local elections first. As an elected member of the municipal council, I deal with neighborhood issues, helping to improve the daily lives of people. Along with other members of the Libertarian Party of Russia I have been an active participant of a number of civil protest actions in Moscow getting arrested several times. Political situation in Russia is much more strict than in the US, especially recently, but even in dictatorship there are opportunities for liberty advocates to fight for more freedom. I am going to explain what an anarchist alone can do to change the system from within. Moreover, I would like to destroy the myth of Russians being totally supporters of Vladimir Putin and his military aggression. I will show that there is a strong liberty movement in Russia that is constantly growing.
