Russian authorities just arrested an entire conference hall full of people. I was one of them. (Vladimir Kara-Murza, Vol1No3)

“As the forum was getting underway, several dozen police officers marched into the conference room. The commanding officer seized the floor… and announced that our meeting was ‘illegal’ and that all its participants were being taken into police custody. The initial burst of laughter from the audience quickly changed to chants of “shame” and “fascists” as officers grabbed each of us by the arms and escorted us outside to waiting prisoner vans.”
