"CHELYABINSK, BREATHE!" FOR FREEDOM of ASSEMBLY!
A little bit about the meeting with the authorized on human rights in the Chelyabinsk area Margarita Pavlova.
Well, make an appointment, I do not aim just to complain that we are not allowed to hold a March of the Mothers in the place and format as we want, we are more concerned with the General scheme of government communication with the people. In response to virtually any treatment you receive a formal reply and "denied!", what is called. The government should not just listen to the people, but also to respond on the merits, to explain, to dialogue. So I talked to Margarita Nikolayevna about common problems and as a practical suggestions asked her to organize, given the power of the Ombudsman, the working group on coordination of mass events, which would include not only representatives of the Commissioner for human rights and social activists, but also representatives of city and regional administrations.
I also handed in a petition from Vasily Moskovets and OD "Stop mining" on the bill, which prohibits almost any grounds, the absurd, faced with the concurrence of the stock when the local administration require some absurd reference and so on.
I was pleased that our views on these issues coincide. The office of the Commissioner for human rights has already sent requests to municipal and regional administration about inadmissibility of adoption of this absurd, contrary to the Constitution , of the bill and about the need for transparency in the harmonization of public events. Margarita agreed that we need a dialogue between the government and citizens and offered to include us in the list of participants of the round table on this subject, which will be held before the New year.
Drinking champagne, of course, still too early, however, if such a round table will take place, it will be the first big step to dialogue and the establishment of transparent and non-discriminatory rights of all citizens of the city and region rules harmonization events.
