Quoted @GreggDCaruso

Democracy is a fragile thing. I was challenged by @Renew_Democracy and @RobertTalisse to say what democracy means to me as part of the #RenewDemocracy series. Here are my brief thoughts:

Philosopher @GreggDCaruso on what democracy means to him: "Democracies are extremely vulnerable to charismatic authoritarian leaders...Without free & fair elections, peaceful transfers of power, respect for the Rule of Law, there is no democracy."

I took the democracy challenge. What does democracy mean to you? I nominate @kirstentheodos @TribecaTrust @LLaudico to take the renew democracy challenge. @Renew_Democracy @Edward_Rad #Renew_democracy #RenewDemocracy

"I recognize that I've taken much of our democracy for granted. There's more that I have to do to make it work, not just for myself, but for others." #RenewDemocracy

Mr. Navalny should be immediately released, and the perpetrators of the outrageous attack on his life must be held accountable. The Kremlin’s attacks on Mr. Navalny are not just a violation of human rights, but an affront to the Russian people who want their voices heard.

Hard to fathom the courage it took for Alexei Navalny to return to Russia so quickly.

I am outraged at the injustice of him being arrested, and worried for his life.

But by risking everything for his values and forcing the regime to show its true face he already achieved a lot.

.@navalny has courageously chosen to return to moscow despite his near-certain arrest. And just a bit ago, he was predictably led away by security forces. The West cannot sit idly by and allow Putin's dictatorship free rein. Russians will fight for freedom - will we support them?

Quoted @Kira_Yarmysh

Испугались посадить самолёт во Внуково из-за сторонников, отправили в Шереметьево, задержали Алексея на границе, адвоката не пустили, собираются держать под арестом до суда. Путин - не в истерике, Навальный - никому не нужен

“What happens to Alexey, what his status is and where he was taken to is unknown," says @navalny spokeswoman.

Quoted @antelava

“Alexey is not afraid. I am not afraid. You shouldn’t be afraid either” says #Navalny ‘s wife before getting into car to leave the airport without her husband. What a story.

Navalny arrested at passport check. Remember that he was in Germany to get treatment for nerve gas poisoning, an assassination attempt by the Putin regime arresting him now on completely concocted charges.

@Renew_Democracy @AVindman Democracy is a learning process: the majority may be wrong, but putting their theory to the test reveals errors and demagoguery while giving the nation a non violent option to correct its course.

Crowd at Vnukovo airport waiting for Navalny to arrive from Berlin. Many think he’s likely to get detained to before he gets here but are coming out to show support.

Free world leaders should all be watching Navalny, and ask themselves how they can be so cowardly as to still do business with Putin while the man Putin tried to murder can be so brave.
