rampART Chechnya film night - tonight

ramART | 23.02.2006 13:00 | Free Spaces | Indymedia | Repression | London | World

Sixty two years ago, on 23 February 1944, Stalin ordered the forcible deportation of the Chechen, Ingush and other nations of the North Caucasus to Central Asia. The people who were were transported with little or no provision in cattle trucks and more than half died in transit or in massacres committed by Soviet troops. Those who survived the journey were left facing starvation and disease in the harsh winters of Siberia and Central Asia. In 2004 the European Parliament passed a motion formally recognising this tragedy as a genocide.

Thursday 23rd Feb is being marked as World Chechnya Day and the rampART free cinema will be participating by dedicating the weekly cinema night to films and hopefully discussion about Chechnya....
