To Commemorate the Decade of Injustice

October 25 will mark the 10th anniversary behind bars for Russian political prisoner Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Please join us as we recognize Khodorkovsky and highlight cases that have come to symbolize injustice in Russia, including those of Sergei Magnitsky, Alexei Navalny, the Bolotnaya protesters, Pussy Riot, and Anna Politkovskaya. Since the arrest and jailing of Khodorkovsky, Russian civil society and freedom activists have faced a continuing crackdown from government authorities. This event, entitled A Decade of Injustice, features a photo exhibit of Russian activists persecuted for their fight on behalf of democracy, freedom and the rule of law.

Tuesday, October 22
3:30 – 5:00 pm
Room 428A, Russell Senate Office Building
