The current topic for the regions of the Far East remains the organization of protests against pension reform. The initiators of pickets and rallies are trade unions, parliamentary parties and less often - non-systemic opposition, reads the next published issue of the EastRussia bulletin. The first have already passed in a number of regions, some of the protest actions are planned for a month ahead.

Last week about two thousand people visited the actions organized by trade unions in 33 municipalities of Primorsky Krai. Often pickets, in addition to trade unions, are joined by local cells of various parties. In Chita, for example, they were communists and representatives of the women's movement "The Hope of Russia".

An active position was taken by the Federation of Trade Unions of Yakutia, which sent an appeal to the State Duma deputies, to the Federation Council, the republican parliament, and also the heads of Aiseyn Nikolayeva. But Magadan trade unions came out more radical: they demanded that the president reduce pensions to officials and deputies, and held a picket against raising the retirement age. Against this backdrop, the interim head Sergei Nosov participates in the campaign that began earlier to exclude the Far North from the pension reform.

In Kamchatka, trade unions came across opposition and could not hold a picket at the reception of Dmitry Medvedev in the regional capital. Nevertheless, earlier in the city, a protest action was held on the initiative of the Communist Party and with the participation of other parties. In Irkutsk, the rally was held without the participation of parliamentary parties. He was jointly led by the movement "National-Patriotic Forces of Russia" and the headquarters of Alexei Navalny. Among other things, during the action they demanded the resignation of Dmitry Medvedev. About 250 people came to protest. In other regions, rallies are scheduled for July.
