5,000 March in St. Petersburg Despite Ban
7 years
'If We're the Fifth Column, Then You're the Sixth Ward'
At Least 10,000 in Peace March in Moscow - AP

Western reporters are saying "thousands" have turned out for the peace march in Moscow and the organizers are saying "tens of thousands" -- thousands are clearly visible in pictures from the march in Moscow, and there are still people joining the march more than an hour after it begun.

Reporter Yevgeny Feldman has estimated "30,000" - which is less than the 50,000 reported by AFP in March when Russia forcibly annexed the Crimea.

They have faced long lines at a police checkpoint with metal detectors at the assembly area on Pushkin Square.

Translation: The tail has now thinned out. There are likely 30,000, the column is veeery stretched out, but don't believe any figures (especially very small and very large).

The false news that the march was cancelled was still circulating in some cities.

Translation: The Peace March in Moscow was cancelled in connection with a lack of turnout.

Translation: Party of Progress at the Peace March.

Translation: there are a loooot of people at the Peace March.

In St. Petersburg, despite lack of a permit, 5,000 were reported to turn out, although there were reports of some arrests.

Translation: I am proud of our city! We are against the war!

Translation: And the main thing -- the Peace March in St. Petersburg was not approved, but 5,000 people were not afraid of coming out.

As the coffins of Russian soldiers killed in the war continue to return to Russia, despite efforts to stop independent press reports, anti-war sentiment has increased.

Translation: There were those who were for the war at the Peace March. This same flag was on the zinc coffin in which we buried Vova Komynin the other day.
