In Nizhny Novgorod, politically active young people wanted to bring officials to white-hot patently absurd notices of meetings. And succeeded. Due to the thoughtless reaction Hall polušutlivaâ application for "procession in order to purchase a loaf" is about to make a third capital of Russia center of political struggle. The escalation of the absurd with interest "the fountain River".
Last Friday, 15 June, the administration of Nizhny Novgorod in the name of its head of a. Kondrashova notification of the event. In accordance with the FEDERAL LAW "on assemblies, meetings ..." organizers reported that 29 June 9 to 10:0 a group of four people is going to hold a March from the Kose b.

"We have initiated a public campaign" life according to the law, "told" Fontanka "one of the activists – nizhegorodets Alexander Krasnov. – Decided to give notice to the Town Hall about all sorts of everyday situations – what we do every day. The first was an application for trekking to the store for bread.
The ultimate goal of active young people, said Alexander krasnov, is "proving the absurdity of public Act amendments, which include a ban on celebrations and things like that."
It is unknown how everything turned out, please take our city boys and girls walk behind bread on any routes in any part and buy them in any quantity. It is possible that young people just would eat purchased loaf. But the inertia of the city administration had proven "not oppress."
Within three days, that is in full compliance with the law, organisers mass purchase Bread was answered in the negative: "City Administration does not agree to the stated place and time of public events (processions)". Because "the stated purpose of ... "buy a baton in the company of friends and performed at the requirements of the new law on rallies," as well as "specified in the notification form public event" procession "to shop for a baguette" do not meet the requirements of the law.
-What is the answer! – razdražënno commented on "Fontanka" ban on buying the meat specialist of the Department on work with law enforcement authorities in Nizhny Novgorod Valeriy Petânin.
Although one could guess that such a response only podstegnët young people.
From Monday the Administration began to fill applications for rallies and marches. Officials have notified about intention to exercise at a bus stop to wait for the bus, walk along the Boulevard, about celebrating a birthday at a fountain ...

Want to celebrate at the fountain – please come, "happy birthday" ... Why officials did not have such a path is mystery. Reply to "Fontanke" on this issue, Mr Petânin failed.
