The protesters held banners reading "United Russia, hands off our pensions!", "We demand a referendum on the issue of retirement increase!", "No – to retirement age increase, yes – to progressive taxation!" and others.
Leader of Penza communists, deputy of the regional Legislative Assembly, presidium member of the Central Committee of CPRF Georgy Kamnev took part in the rally.
He expressed the opinion that the sole purpose of raising the retirement age is "to support oligarchs affected by western sanctions at the expense of ordinary people's savings".
"Only together we will be able to achieve our demands and defend the right to a decent life in our own country," the leader of Penza communists noted.
Previously, protests against pension reform took place in Kuznetsk, Kamenka, Neverkino, Bashmakovo, Pachelma as well as in Serdobsk, Nizhny Lomov, Zarechnoe and Spassk.
