Appeal of Circassian Youth Forum of Moscow about KBR lands
The Circassian Youth forum of Moscow, held on November, 25th by Public organization “Khabzaem i nur”, expressed its disagreement with the actions of the state authorities and members of the Parliament of Kabardino-Balkaria from October, 31st, 2009 on adoption of the bill “About amendments in Law of KBR “About status and borders of municipal formations in KBR”.
Such decision causes increase of the interethnic tensions and creates a threat of serious interethnic conflict.
Though for today we are compelled for the economic reasons and because of unemployment in KBR to work and to live temporarily outside our native land, we reserve the right to ourselves for participation in the political life of the republic and we hope for the future changes to the best.
On November, 17th in Nalchik there was the meeting against allocation of the high-mountainous pastures historically used by inhabitants of the plains for needs of nomadic animal industry, to several mountain villages where for one inhabitant of the mountain villages it should be 10,6 hectares whereas for a peasant from the plains – just 1,3 hectares. It gives up as a bad job to revival of the nomadic animal industry, breaks the rights and the legitimate interests of all the other inhabitants of KBR.
In this connection:
Circassian Youth Forum of Moscow supports the resolution adopted at the meeting of November, 17th in Nalchik in all its items. We also demand its immediate execution, otherwise the Circassian youth of the city of Moscow will achieve the fair solving of the land dispute in KBR at the federal level, using all the lawful methods and actions.
