Let us protect the Belovezhskaya Pushcha - invaluable treasure of the Belarusian people

Declaration of Belarusian People's Front (BPF)
January 20, 2003
Minsk

The Belovezhskaya Pushcha, a world famous symbol of Belarus and a natural monument of the world importance, is in lethal jeopardy.

Newcomers and casual managers, so-called newly comers to light - "economic planers", who consider the Pushcha a raw material for sale, destroy it by abusing their authority. There is little left before the Pushcha, our thousand-year national pride has been mopped off the face of the Earth.

The Belarusian People's Front Party expresses its solidarity with courageous scientists and journalists, who have made it known all over the world about Pushcha's calamity. The next step should become a consolidation of all responsible scientific, public activists, political forces, and ordinary honest people for the protection of the Belovezhskaya Pushcha. It is an urge that together we develop a strategy on its protection using available informational, scientific and political resources. We suggest that we organize a constituent assembly of the National committee on the Pushcha's protection.

The Belarusian People's Front Party is ready to apply its international contacts to raise the question about further validity of the European Diploma 48, which was awarded to the Belovezhskaya Pushcha in 1997.

Let us protect the Belovezhskaya Pushcha - Let us protect Belarus!
