    In Twelve Who Don't Agree, journalist Valery Panyushkin profiles twelve Russians from across the country's social spectrum: a politician, a journalist, an army officer, an author, a bank manager, a laborer, a university student . . . Despite varied backgrounds, they all have one thing in common-participation in the historic March of the Dissidents. Held in 2007 to protest the eroding state of affairs in Russia, the March was held in flagrant violation of increasingly stringent laws forbidding public demonstrations. Though each of these men and women had personal reasons for joining the demonstration, they shared a belief that the government of Vladimir Putin was betraying the promise of Russia's future.

    Risking the threats and violent retaliation inflicted upon journalists who dare to question the powers that be, Panyushkin boldly illuminates the lives and convictions of these twelve men and women. Refusing to accept the effects of a decade of natural asset-generated wealth, government corruption, and media censorship, their accounts reveal the commitment to human rights and equality from which a dissident's journey begins, and from which often there is no return.
