Driving for a better future

"Let's Drive for Your Native Land", Russia
Moscow, December 4, 2011: Elections for the Russian parliament, the starting point of a political grass-roots protest in Russia. Civil observers move between polling stations, and Mikhail, a former businessman and oppositionist, is one of the drivers. He has grown tired of fighting against oppression, but he keeps driving anyway. Why?

"Let's Drive for Your Native Land" (Foundation for Independent Radio, Webradio Podstantsiya) is a report rather than a radio documentary. Even if its tone remains grave and educational it sheds light on what media refer to as "the opposition" - in a country pretending to be democratic.
