Bundespräsident Joachim Gauck: Sochi 2014: Include Circassians in Public Debate!/ Tscherkessen in öffentliche Debatte einbeziehen!/ Çerkesler de Gündeme Alınmalı!
Our petition has closed.
Feb 4, 2014 — A big thank you to all supporters of our petition! We were able to collect a total of 885 signatures, which is much more than we had initially hoped for. It is also certainly a very good result regarding the circumstances (a rather short time span and with German media not only offering no support in form of news coverage, but with them in fact blocking efforts of getting word about the petition out to the public in several instances). We are also proud of having received the support of several well-known intellectuals, artists, journalists and Circassian and non-Circassian functionaries and office-holders. We are now trying to get an appointment at the presidential office in Berlin in order for the petition to be delivered in person by representatives of the Circassian diaspora in Germany. We will update you as soon as we have any news!
