STOP THE MILITARISATION OF THE CONFLICT IN THE UKRAINE!
We, activists of a large number of political movements against far right extremism and populism, have been deeply shocked and hurt by the excess of violence against the people on Maidan Square who have been demonstrating in their vast majority for democracy, social justice and the right for self-determination of the great variety of peoples living in the Ukraine.
Being conscious that this mass-movement of the common people on the streets has been misused in various forms by political parties and right wing forces, but also by the European Union to promote their own political interests, we first of all condemn categorically the excess of violence of the Ukrainian security forces used against the demonstrators.
Secondly we make an appeal to all democratic forces and grass-roots organisations in Eastern and Western Europe to show their active solidarity with the resistance on Maidan Square and in many other parts of the Republic of Ukraine - because we consider it basically part of the same worldwide movement against racism, xenophobia, militarism and the neoliberal deconstruction forces which are dominating the world, be it in the EU, Russia or the Ukraine.
And finally we want to make a call to all parts of the social conflict to refrain from violence because it only helps the far right and the militarists, and to engage in an open, transparent and democratic dialogue on the level of civil and civilized societies, without any conditions nor political mediators, on the implementation of the necessary reforms.
LONG LIVE THE INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLES OF UKRAINE!!!
