Lone protester (from former Soviet Union) on Mall complains of US seizure of his media

Today, I encountered, next to the National Day of Service tent, a protester Ahmadjonov Shuhratjon, who marched alone with the sign shown.

I found an article by a person of this name on Streetsense, here

He appears to be from Uzbekistan.

He claims that his media (both hardcopy and on the Internet) have been disrupted by US officials, in violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (link)

From what I can quickly find on the Web, I can’t tell exactly what his complaint is.  I’ll keep this in mind and see if Electronic Frontier Foundation turns up anything.
