Youth from Latvia in Strasbourg: Hands off Russian schools!
Latvian Russian Union /Facebook
A strike against the Latvian educational reorganization concerning the Russian schools was held in Strasbourg near the European Parliament building. Deputy of the European Parliament Miroslav Mitrofanov organized a trip of the activists to Strasbourg, according to the official Facebook page of the Latvian Russian Union.
Russian-speaking schoolchildren and activists of the Latvian Russian Union took part in the strike targeted at delivering a message to the members of the European Parliament about the essence of the conducted reorganization, which deprives the Russian-speaking minority a right of getting the secondary education in their native language. According to the Latvian deputy, the event in Strasbourg became another link in the chain of protest campaigns.
Riga is preparing the following retaliatory step – the campaign called the Russian Nature timed with the 125th birth anniversary of the Russian revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky. Its main purpose is to remind one more time of difficulties encountered by the Russian schoolchildren in Latvia. Organizers of the campaign plan to hold the All-Latvian car race in protection of the Russian-language education in the Baltic States.
