"Western Vampires" Arrested in Moscow

Other Russia held a protest in Moscow on Saturday, leading to the arrest of 50-70 people.

According to the group a "pro-Kremlin youth organization Young Russia, which had been scattering fliers with the phrase 'Western vampires were gathered here,' began to light fireworks. Blaming the provocation on opposition protesters, police began making arrests and forced remaining protesters into a nearby metro station."

Still, Ludmilla Alexeeva of the Moscow Helsinki Group remained adamant: "We will come here every 31st of the month, to defend our Constitution."

Under Article 31 of the Constituion, all citizens "shall have the right to assemble peacefully, without weapons, hold rallies, meetings and demonstrations, marches and pickets."

Orwell would be so proud, some vampires are more equal than others.
