Russians gather for new mass rallies – Europe – Al Jazeera English.

Russian opposition activists are holding a second nationwide rally to protest against what they say were rigged parliamentary elections on December 4.

Organisers say tens of thousands of people are expected to gather on Sakharov Avenue, in the capital Moscow, on Saturday.

Demonstrators had already started to rally in the far east city of Vladivostock early on Saturday, with protests expected in 95 towns and cities across the country’s nine timezones throughout the day.

“They [protesters] want to make sure they send the clearest signal yet of growing public discontent with the results of this year’s parliamentary election,” Al Jazeera’s Neave Barker reported from Moscow.”
