The Latvian top is dead set on a drastic cut of native language classes in ethnic minorities' secondary schools
It has come against an equally formidable wall of determination as public protesters are planning another wave of mass action. An all-Latvia Mayday rally of Russian language tuition partisans gathered more than 50,000. Its resolution calls to carry on action against an upcoming academic reform unless it is suspended. The Russian School Protection HQ addressed a news conference yesterday to make the resolution public. Many V-E Day events will centre round ethnic minorities' right to have their mother tongue for tuition language-in particular, a May 9 rally and concert at a Riga monument to Soviet liberator soldiers of World War II. HQ activists will picket Latvian embassies in other EU countries throughout next summer. Rallies have been appointed for June 1, International Children's Day, and June 12, when Latvia goes to the polls to elect its European Parliament delegates. A national school strike will sweep Latvia, starting September 2, warns the Mayday resolution. A united congress of the ethnic Russian community intends to have an inaugural conference toward September's end. The budding organisation has the definition of a "voluntary league of individuals, communities and public organisations who regard the Russian language and culture as their own, irrespective of their civil status, ethnicity, political convictions and religion".
