Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
IU tried to coopt the movement by lodging an appeal yesterday before the Supreme court against the election commission's ban.

I think that's dangerous and counterproductive: the protesters's claim to not be politically affiliated is their stronger argument against the electoral commission ban of the protest during election day and the 24h prior. If IU associates itself with the protesters, they lose their cover of being just regular citizens.

Economics is politics by other means
