Not sure what this is about because it's in sign language

There used to be an election poster here and now there’s this thing. It says, “A city that’s comfortable for all.” I think those women — they are women, yes? — are showing the slogan on the red part of the poster: “The city — our beloved home.”

Turns out, this is a poster put up by the Government Agency for the Social Defense of the Population of Moscow, in conjuction with its initiative: “A year of equal rights.”

It’s rather ironic to see this poster just a few yards from a metro station with zero handicap access, over a street with no ramps, in a place where the disabled sit cooped up at home because the city — which is far, far too treacherous to navigate — is probably their very “beloved home.”

    Funny part is you could put the slogan on a red banner with a hammer and sickle twenty years ago …
