Rally held in Yoshkar-Ola in support of indigenous people

106467_IMG_0901_новый размерYesterday, on 27 August 2015, a rally was held in front of the seat of the government of Mari El in Yoshkar-Ola. The rally addressed the danger of disappearance faced by the Mari people, advocated the preservation of Mari traditions and culture, and demanded protection of the peoples of the Republic of Mari El from the tyranny of corruption.

The rally expressed opposition to the policies of the current head of the Republic of Mari El, Leonid Markelov, who has been in power for 15 years and is currently running for another term. Many residents of the republic are unhappy with his national, educational, and economic policies. Vladimir Koslov, the Leader of the Mari national movement Mari ushem, addressed the crowd at the rally: “We shall not let the Mari nation disappear”. The Mari national movement is supporting the candidate of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Sergey Mamayev.
