Worldwide are Outraged for Holding the Olympiad in Sochi
Friday, the 7th of
Today, Friday, the 7th
of February, 2014, marks the start of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi which
will include sports and other activities that will last for 14 days; but
Circassians stand to mourn and condemn the sad event which is adopted and supported
by the Russian state, regardless of all ethical, historical and environmental
worries and concerns.
Sochi was the last
capital city of Circassia, being the last Circassian stronghold during a 101-year
long defensive war against the Tsarist Russian invasion, witnessed the end of
the Russian-Circassian War, 150 years ago in 21, May, 1864, and the victory
parade conducted by the victorious military forces, that reminds of the consequences
of genocide, destruction and forced deportation from the Port of Sochi to the
Ottoman Empire, which the entire Circassian nation was subjected to.
The Circassians in
Jordan, being part of the worldwide Circassians are planning for a peaceful and
nonviolent demonstration to stand in a
moment of mourning in front of the Russian Embassy in Amman, Jordan from 4:00
PM to 5:00 PM, in a protest for the unacceptable non-observance of human
feelings, in participation of other
Circassians at homeland in the North Caucasus, and in Diaspora to observe this
evil event, in condemnation for the improperly uncalculated step which is not taken
purely for sports and athletics reasons, but to celebrate improper results that
included and was not limited to total
occupation of Circassia.
Circassians and their
friends in the world are intending to show their outrage and rejection to hold
the Olympiad on a genocide soil that includes mass cemeteries and graves of
Circassians and aim to ascertain that this action doesn’t reflect the Olympic
spirit as such.
