Proponents of Lenin’s burial to march with nationalists

Members of the For the Removal of Lenin movement are planning to hold a march as part of the annual nationalist Russian March on Nov. 4, demanding the communist leader's body be removed from Red Square.

"The march will involve all sectors of society - from housewives to businessmen. No matter who you are: Orthodox, atheist or pagan. If you are for freedom from the yoke of this dead man and for the removal of Lenin's mummy, then you are with us, and we are waiting for you at a public procession. According to all polls, it is 70 percent of Russian citizens," Interfax quoted the organizers' announcement as saying on Monday.

The nationalist leader of the "Russians" movement, Dmitry Demushkin, proposed that Lenin's body be sold to the Chinese.

"They already have one - Mao Zedong. One more can not hurt. As soon as we get permission to negotiate we will start to negotiations with the Chinese," he said.
