Boulevard in Paris Unofficially Dedicated to Anna Politkovskaya

An RA reader in Paris has forwarded us this photograph of a street sign, taken today on Boulevard Lannes right near the Russian Embassy. In an apparent gesture of protest, someone has plastered on a poster which has renamed the street “Boulevard Anna Politkovskaia.” This guerilla dedication also reads “1959 – 2006 Russian Journalist.” Part of the poster has been ripped away, so there may have been more text. boulevard.jpg
