Vladimir Telegin: “Abai Kunanbaev as a Mirror of the Russian Revolution”

A wonderful photo reportage from #OccupyAbai (Chistye Prudy, Moscow) by the fabulous Vladimir Telegin.

The sign posted on the tree reads, “Seminar! How to organize a political strike?… Come at 7:00 p.m.”

Our friends revolutionary folk ensemble Arkady Kots (upper left corner) entertain and agitate the crowd.

There are many, many more photos at Vladimir Telegin’s LiveJournal blog.
