Radical leaders said Friday they will protest Wednesday's Revolution Day holiday with a rally to mourn victims of communism and a march to the home of the late human rights activist Andrei Sakharov.

After wrestling with whether to hold any kind of counter-demonstration at all in Moscow on the biggest holiday on the Soviet calendar - radical leaders decided to go ahead with their protest following the City Council's decision to allow alternative rallies."We shall state on Nov. 7 that not everybody is happy in the role of guinea pigs that was given to us in the great experiment of 1917-1990," said Lev Shemayev of the Moscow Voters' Club, a group that has been organizing anti-Communist rallies this year.

Sitting beneath a huge portrait of Vladimir Lenin in a City Council hall, Shemayev said the demonstration would strive to show that "Marxism-Leninism is the most inhumane theory ever created."
