30. September, visited the European Parliament Committee on International Tsirkasside * Total representation. They visited a variety of human rights and foreign policy, and the persons involved were part of the Human Rights Commission (DROI) meeting.Guests welcomed the Commission's chairwoman, Heidi Hautala, Finnish Ambassador green.
Into four members of the delegation were Mr. Iyad Youghar, Ms. Tamara Barsik, Mr. and Ms. Seteney Gurcesme Aliy Berzegov. Purpose of the visit was to familiarize the international community tsirkasside situation in their homeland. All these people are good at living in America, primarily because of the Russian Federation under the control of their home country are not allowed to go back. So they share their destiny tsirkassiga nearly 6 million worldwide. Today, more than 1 million lives Tsirkassias tsirkessi.That number has declined consistently and not just a result of natural growth.
Youghar Iyad, the head of delegation, is a New Jersey resident tsirkasside rights activist and history, acting, and has written several articles on human rights situation in the Caucasus. They go along the procedure for at least 1 year without having to explain the fate of his people. It is indeed old, but nonetheless increasingly päevakorralisema topic. 2014.a notoriously organized the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, a place where the 19th century, Russia was committed by a brutal and widespread Carnage, which all tsirkassid - foreign, home living, less loyal and more power in Russia - want to recognize as genocide. Namely, 90% were sent to exile after the tsirkasse 1864.a ending the war in the Caucasus, the remainder were killed.It was committed, where Putin wants to now about 150 years later, to confirm their superiority, symbolically, and internationally.

Today the situation is now far from being accepted: no respect for human rights education in their mother tongue practically no longer exists, corruption and poverty in the sprawling, bomb explosions take place. Tsirkassi People's Congress decided to provide emergency earlier this summer, Russia's State Duma set up a prayer tsirkasside ethnic autonomy, as it was in the years 1926-1957. All the assumptions can not be anything like this in the coming years we can still be seen.
Continues today in the Northwest Caucasus in the murder of journalists, human rights violations and restrict freedom of expression. However, the Russian at the same time, all the Winter Olympic Games successfully, and huge investments in the area are placed. Vladimir Putin-led government activity can be seen in these respects, chauvinism, paranoia, but also the seemingly contradictory desire to develop the region "terrorists" invested in the region, but at the same time oppressed ... The Olympic Games should take place according to current plans location, which is a UNESCO world heritage listed. So far, signs it may be presumed that the account of the fact that the construction goes along, because about 600 plant species thought to be endangered.
