Five hundred students from Asia and Africa who are studying in Russia went on strike to protest neo-Nazi violence. The students are studying in the city of Voronezh, which is 250 miles south of Moscow. The strike, aimed at generating more police protection from neo-Nazis, came after a 24-year medical student from the African country of Guinea Bissau was killed in Voronezh last Saturday in what was believed to be a hate crime.
