A powerful anti-anti-abortion protest took place today in Petersburg, but you will not hear about it in any of the mass media.
Until we fail to put a halt to abortions, which, fortunately, annually do away with enough people to populate the city the size of Petersburg, there is no point in discussing or contemplating anything serious.
Russia is not only the land of the dead, which has been said more than once, but it is also the land of the unborn.
The Russian Federation not only has a past that never was. It also has a future that will never be.
Russia is a failed state. Russia is a fake state.
All Russians, men and women, are in some respect dead men and dead women, but they are also embryos.
No wonder the stage of (para)political theater has recently been occupied by such figures: aborted embryos telling us they could have been soldiers, for example, and dead women and men, who worked to the grave, but did not live to see a single kopeck of their pensions.
Bringing together the dead and the unborn was long overdue. This is just what we have done in our protest. We are MONSTERS, a new group of militants in the field of political art in Petersburg.
We staged our protest in response to the latest move by the pro-lifers, who played heavy on people’s heart strings.
We profess and practice monstrous political art. We thus decided to do something even more sentimental.
You thus see before you dead embryos. They might not have lived until retirement, but in any case they did not survive until retirement.
