Lone Voices: Russian Opposition Activists Launch Solo Pickets Across Moscow

Reuters reports Russian opposition activists staged a string of pickets in central Moscow on Saturday.

They're calling for free elections and for charges against protesters detained at recent rallies to be dropped.

Moscow has been rocked by weekly protests for more than a month.

The protests were triggered when authorities barred opposition candidates from running in a local election.

Saturday’s solo pickets, spread across three locations in Moscow, were peaceful and opposition supporters scarce.
