CIRCASSIAN ACTIVISM: Q&A WITH TIAGO FERREIRA LOPES(21.02.2014)

CIRCASSIAN ACTIVISM: Q&A WITH TIAGO FERREIRA LOPES

As the Winter Olympics in Sochi reach their halfway mark, protest still rings in the air. On Tuesday, February 18, two members of Pussy Riot, the famed feminist punk rock band, were arrested in central Sochi. Last week, a judge sentenced Evgeny Vitishko, an environmental activist who had investigated corruption in the run-up to the Olympics, to three years in prison. And in the midst of a public protest movement for Russia to acknowledge the 19th century Circassian genocide, notable Circassian activist Asker Sokht was detained.

Why is Circassian Political Agenda in Double Danger?

There is a striking resemblance between the articles and position papers about Circassia, Circassian nationalism and Circassian political goals. The majority of the authors and of the experts usually spend half of the time elaborating about historical facts and usually only a few scarce lines are about new subjects and new dynamics related with the Circassians’ political agenda.I will try to do it differently. Do not take me wrongly, I surely believe that knowing Circassian past history is quintessential. But I also believe that it is irrelevant to repeat the same facts over and over, instead of adding something new. In the years immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union...
