Conference in Radisson

My friend invited me to an event held in Radisson Hotel on 27. April. It was organised by a media club called "Impressum", which is also mentioned in the KaPo (kaitsepolitseiamet/ security police aka secret police) yearly report as a threat to Estonia. Did not hear any threatening speeches, but saw around 200 people in their 50s and 60s. 

The main orator was Giulietto Chiesa, a journalist, politician and a member of Italian Communists in the 60s and 70s. Was talking something about how the world is changing and how everyone has to adapt to these changes. 
After my friend asked him "what do we have to do in order to stop being exploited by capitalism", he answered that "Marxism-Leninism doesn't work any more". Thank god. 

Chairman Giulietto Chiesa

Old audience, probably most of them are former Communist Party members. At least they gave me such an impression.

Giulietto Chiesa is known for protecting the rights of people who have Alien's Passports in Estonia and Latvia (Estonia - 100 000 people hold it, in Latvia a bit more). It is a good thing that he is talking about it since he is also member of the EU parliament, since not a lot of people outside of Baltic states know about this issue and when you tell them they do not believe, however you do not have to be a communist or Putin's personal ass licker or a radical to understand that this situation in the country is not right in a logical, moral or any other sense. For example, it does not let you vote in any elections except local ones. The best thing is that people who were born here in Estonia, have this passport, and their children if they are born here, will also have it. 

Requirement for getting an Estonian pass is to pass Estonian language exam. I remember when some of our politicians could not pass this exam, and they were native Estonian speakers. So yes, if you speak Russian as a mother tongue it can be a bit difficult. From another side, Russians could have already learned Estonian language, since they did have 20 years time.
