My essay on the issue of whether to allow a gay pride parade in Moscow, which was run on GayRussia.ru (also on Cato.ru), has now been translated into Arabic. (If you use Adobe to read it, you may need to load up the Arabic character set.) I hope to have it out in English soon.
Cato.ru is running a series on civil society, which includes interviews of the leaders of the Russian drug reform movement, the drivers’ movement (they’re protesting the jailing of a man whose “crime” was to be hit by a car carrying the Governor of one of the Russian republics, who died in the crash his driver caused), a leader of the movement for the rights of gay people in Russia, the leader of the classical liberal faction of the Moscow City Duma, and more. Similarly, the Lamp of Liberty is also promoting a policy of toleration, freedom, and justice for all. The Lamp of Liberty will be running a series of interviews with Arab liberals in the coming months.
