Do YOU Want to Do Something About the Situation in Estonia?
This is circulating in the Baltics….
ACTION “WE ARE TOGETHER! FREE AND INDEPENDENT!”
On the 8th of May, 11:45, we encourage every free and conscious citizen to join the action of solidarity of the Baltic States “We are together! Free and independent!”
This action is meant to support Estonia and to remind the old members of the European Union, as well as the rest of the world that the silence from Europe at the crucial moments used to become a tragedy for the Baltic States.
Everyone who is civic-minded and concerned about the incidents in Estonia, every person, every organization, a politician, and a journalist or a media man is invited to join the action. Everyone wishing to participate please e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
The action begins at 11:45 a.m. on May 8th in Vilnius, at the Cathedral square (the permits are pending).
If we succeed to gather together not only the Lithuanians, but the Latvians and the Estonians too, at 12:05, at the same time in Vilnius, Riga, and Tallinn and on the borders of these states, expressing the will and the strength of the Baltic States, we will stand shoulder to shoulder keeping hand in hand. Remembering the Baltic Way, the Lithuanians, the Latvians and the Estonians will declare that during the greatest times of challenges, the Baltic States will stand together.
The accident (incident) which began at the end of April showed that the problems of security still have not been solved, they just took a different and an intangible shape.
The skirmish in Tallinn was a serious warning and a future lesson for the all three Baltic States. The fact that it was not only the internal problem was proven by an inadequate reaction of Russian government and a tendentious role of Russian media, as well as the problems faced when trying to ensure the security of the Estonian diplomats in Moscow.
This event showed once again what a big influence and pressure can be experienced by the sovereign Baltic States. In the context of these events, the silence from the European politicians reminded the severe moments of Lithuania’s, Latvia’s and Estonia’s struggle for freedom.
