Some of the activists were in court in the city of Vidnoe with the demand to oblige the Ministry of Education and Federal State Budgetary Educational Institution to repeal regulations that prevent the resumption of the school. Another group of the Gorki school defenders decided to attend the annual meeting of representatives of the education sector in order to remind them of their problem.
Nine people in clothes inscribed with the words “Return the Gorki School to the children” and [Minister of Education Olga] “Vasilyeva on trial” caused quite a stir in the halls of the international forum. Visitors to the event were interested in learning the reason for the action and expressed their support for the protesters. Police officers found no reason to hinder this form of protest and behaved politely.
The Communists of Russia warmly support the activists of the Gorki School in the fight against the anti-people policy of the Ministry of Education. And we join their call to resist the lawlessness of officials!
