Donetsk International Day of Peace

Introduction by Quemado Institute
September 21, 2015

The children of Donetsk have enough faith in the world’s leaders to simply ask that they stop the war in Donbass. Peace, of course, must be fair to the people who live there. It must not be merely a mandated ceasefire under the dictates of the enemy, but a true end to hostilities, in which local self-government, freedom of expression, and the values of the region’s culture flourish.

The residents and leadership of the Donetsk People’s Republic are building a free and democratic society where, as Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko said in an interview on May 11, 2015 (see below), “children are raised with love, and are not just a burden their parents must feed and clothe.” This sentiment was eloquently expressed in photos of the ceremonies at the start the of DPR school year, in which beginning students were given bouquets to celebrate their first step toward adulthood. Where in the United States have children been so honored? The DPR sets an example of kindness to be emulated the world over.

The following article brings a message from DPR youth:

Stop the War in Donbass

Young residents of the DPR appealed to the international community to help stop the war in Donbass. They read out this message at a rally in Donetsk, where today, on the occasion of the International Day of Peace, about two thousand people were gathered.

The rally was held in the park at the Memorial Lenin Komsomol “Your liberators Donbass”. The event was attended by representatives of the public movement “Donetsk Republic” (DR) and its youth wing, the deputies of the People’s Council, as well as high school students and ordinary citizens of the city.

“We have had war for more than a year. People who lived in the world yesterday as a family, [are now] killing each other,” said first deputy head of the executive committee of the DR Alexei Muratov, addressing the audience. “Children of Donbass, like no other, know and understand the horrors of war. That is why on September 1, as a lesson to the world, children have written letters of appeal to the leaders of all countries to stop the war.”

“Who else but we can know the value of this world. Today we must remember all those terrible moments that happened on our land, to remember and transmit to our next generation, our children, because for young people in Donetsk People’s Republic, its citizens cannot be overrun,” chairman of the public organization “Young Respublika” Sergei Kondrykinsky said in turn.

At the meeting, a minute of silence was observed in memory of those killed in the war in Donbass, both militias and civilians. After that, the young people of the Republic read poems and sang a few songs about the world, and then read out the present text of the message to world leaders.

“We were only 14, we dream of a peaceful sky over your head, our heart bleeds when we hear and see that the windows exploding from shells. We want very much that the faces of our family have a smile, and not tears of disappointment. We appeal to you, on behalf of all the residents of Donbass, to please keep the peace in our country,” said a student of Donetsk school number 120 in Sofia Cochin.

A schoolgirl added that she remembers how beautiful was the Donetsk before the war, and that the belief in the hearts of the students, by the offensive of the world, is not quenched.

In conclusion, there were released into the sky balloons with dozens of letters, calls pf Donbass children about the world, and doves symbolizing peace and harmony.

The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the UN General Assembly to promote peace among peoples and nations. In 2001, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution in which it decided that the International Day of Peace will be celebrated every year on September 21 as a day of non-violence and ceasefire day.

Censorship Looms Over European Union

Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
