Hands off Memorial!
Dear colleagues, friends.
As you already know, the General and Moscow City Prosecutors’ Offices have recently appealed to the RF Supreme Court and the Moscow City Court with a request to liquidate the International Memorial and Memorial Human Rights Center, as they allegedly “grossly violate” the legislation on foreign agents.
Numerous organizations in Russia and Abroad have already spoken out in our support, as well as public and political figures and ordinary citizens.
Your letters with warm words of support and an expression of readiness to help in any way possible come In response to the mailing of the Statement of the Board of International Memorial.
The petition called “Hands off the Memorial – let’s stop the liquidation of key public organizations by court!” is placed on Change.org web site.
You can familiarize yourselves with the text of the petition, and, in case if you agree, sign it (in the form to the right of the text) at this link: https://www.change.org/p/руки-прочь-от-мемориала-остановим-ликвидацию-по-суду-ключевых-для-россии-общественных-организаций
Thank you for your support.
Yevgeniy Zakharov, member of the Board of International Memorial and the director of Kharkiv Human Rights Protection Group – a member of the International Memorial.
