Today on May 1st growing number of citizens of Karakalpakstan joined to International Protest to support Oleg Sentsov, Roman Sushenko and other Ukrainians who are in Russian prisons. This is joined protest for civil activists of Karakalpakstan against Russian aggression in Ukraine and Uzbek aggression in Independent Republic of Karakalpakstan.
In this growing hunger strike protest are participating:
Aman Sagidullaev - leader of Democratic Party Alga Karakalpakstan 3rd day, Norway
Bağdat Ismailov - Leader of Democratic Party Alpamis, 2nd day
Jangeldi Jaksimbetov - Leader of Democratic Party Azatlik, 2nd day
Nasbahan Erniyazova, Kuanish Kaniyazov, Darman and Erman Iskenderov, Alisher Kalmataev, Erejepbay Shorabayev (2nd day)
We have more reason to participate in this protest because we have to stop growing aggression of authoritarian governments like Russian and Uzbekistan. Shavkat Mirziyoyev just banned in Republic of Karakalpakstan any demonstration or protests in International Worker's Day May 1st. Unprecedented action of occupation policy of Government of Uzbekistan in Karakalpakstan, violation of human rights especially when all businesses are systematically shutting down one by one, jobless sky-high and in Urban area jobless rate up to 90%. Most of all not President of Uzbekistan, nor Mayors, administration or Government officials doesn't take any complaints from people of Karakalpakstan who are in desperate because of abuse of their rights by Government officials of Uzbekistan.
One of recent wide spread protest and demand to show agreement between Uzbekistan and Karakalpakstan on the basis of which we have presence of Uzbek military in Karakalpakstan TURNED DOWN. There is NO agreement ratified by referendum and current PRESENCE OF UZBEK GOVERNMENT IN KARAKALPAKSTAN ABSOLUTELY ILLEGAL ANTI CONSTITUTIONAL AND PURE ACTION OF AGGRESSION of Government of Uzbekistan and his president Shavkat Mirziyoyev. As the consequence of occupation policy of Uzbek Government people of Karakalpakstan can't celebrate International Worker's Day, especially at the time of jobless and humanitarian Catastrophe.
Meanwhile Government of Uzbekistan doesn't shy to threaten people of Karakalpakstan with triggering civil war by using Government Supported bloggers on Social media in YouTube, Instagram, Facebook. Bloggers of Government of Uzbekistan are sending life threatening messages to civil activists of Karakalpakstan, they are committing crime on live broadcasting on YouTube channels where they are bragging how they beating up other human beings. Most importantly some of the bloggers are discussing how they can plot terrorist act in other countries, in Europe or USA by using their countryman and sending them messages by social media.
All these massive aggression of Government of Uzbekistan MUST BE STOPED. No wonder why request to hold demonstration on May 1st in Nukus city capital of Karakalpakstan turned down by Mayor P.Toreshov. Abuse of human rights in Uzbekistan still continue, SGB agents of Uzbekistan still torture innocent people and persecute civil rights activists. And these are happening today, despite that some of journalists, human rights defenders saw some progress with S.Mirziyoyev presidency. We believe that this is illusion and human rights abuse keep happening right before our nose in Karakalpakstan today and right now.
We are asking UN, OSCE and all Governments officials of UN countries to help us to restore our Independence and recognize Republic of Karakalpakstan as a State. We can protect our citizens only as a full member of UN and as a member of NATO from delivering to citizens radioactive coal, untreated poisonous public drinking water which is now weapon of mass killing used by Uzbek government, we can protect our citizens from infectious deceases, termites, tuberculosis which have being spread by SGB agents of Government of Uzbekistan in Karakalpakstan. Please help!!!
