Video: Glucksmann on Khodorkovsky

The influential French philosopher Andre Glucksmann has given a video statement today to voice his support for Mikhail Khodorkovsky as the second show trial against is being carried out in Moscow.  Among other comments, Glucksmann says that “nothing should be considered a finality in Russia, that there has always been resistance– that of the Poets, like Pushkin, or the Decembrists, or resistance from simple people; like Matriona of Solzhenitsyn.

In October, 2007, Glucksmann authored a seminal article in support of Khodorkovsky’s case in the newspaper Le Monde.
