17: Blue pants
23 Jan 2021, London, UK
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions it was impossible for Russians living in London to protest in a conventional way. Thus, a group of activists decided that they were going to put a string near the Russian embassy, and invited people to hang blue pants on it. Blue pants became particularly symbolic for Russian protestors, as it was an item of Navalny’s clothing special forces supposedly contaminated with Novichok nerve agent.
