“We respond with ideological work and direct civil action in the face of declining civic activism” stated Maria Mamikonyan, Chairwoman of the All-Russian Parents’ Resistance (ARPR) organization for family protection, on November 7 in Moscow at the the special congress of the Essence of Time movement, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, a correspondent of the Rossa Primavera Information Agency reports.
Once we realized that we were facing the situation of “declining genuine leftist social activism, a situation where our society is being suffocated with a pillow of filthy made up stories about the revolution, the war, the Soviet Union, we began to engage in work, ideological work … combining it with direct social action,” – said the head of (ARPR). Stressing that “ we are doing this because we understand that people are dying from the deprivation of cultural life in our country; by the trampling on the concepts of human and societal ideals. It’s not possible to live without them, and in Russia it’s absolutely impossible to survive without them.”
We see “a monstrous social stratification into human castes, and we respond to this social Darwinism, which does not hesitate to make a claim in our country here and now,” said Mamikonyan. “We fight on all fronts starting with: the cultural, ideological, informational and of course, the toughest front of the day – the struggling Donbass. Our boys are fighting there, fighting a war.”
“We are slowly raising the banner which so ineptly slipped our hands in such a sad fashion during the late Soviet Union. However, we are now raising it, which means that not everything is lost. Happy holiday, comrades!”– concluded the leader of the ARPR.
The special congress of the Essence of Time movement, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, began on November 7 in Moscow.
