It was the largest rally in Krasnodar over the past ten years. About 3 thousand people gathered. It was hot in the sun. People stood on the edges of the site - in the shade of the trees, so some media looked at photos from social networks and, as usual, reported a small number of participants. Delegations from Gelendzhik, Goryachiy Klyuch, Kanevskaya, Dinskaya, Slavyansk-on-Kubani also came to the rally in Krasnodar. Accompanied the rally according to the tradition of the ambulance service and the units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Emergency Situations.
First Secretary of the Krasnodar Regional Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, State Duma deputy N.I. Osadchy stressed that people begin to overcome the “couch mood” and realize that they need to fight for their rights and interests - by all civilized means, up to the resignation of the government with its anti-people projects.
“During the month we in the Duma daily exposed the inconsistency of the government’s cannibalistic law on raising the retirement age, indicated the lack of economic and social demographic grounds, but the ruling party did not want to listen to our objections. The law 19 July was adopted, despite the resistance of the communists and other opposition deputies, in the first reading. However, our struggle after this is not over. ... We must thwart the adoption of this law, and we will win, - Completed the leader of the regional branch of the Communist Party.
On the State Duma website published list participants of the meeting, from which it follows that 17 deputies from Krasnodar region took part in the voting. Tellingly, all 13 representatives of United Russia supported the adoption of the reform. Four of our deputies (two from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia and two from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation) came out against the bill.
The draft final resolution of the rally included not only negative evaluations of the actions of the ruling party in recent months, but also other specific slogans:
- The government, the party of power are obliged to comply with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, in article 55, prohibiting the adoption of laws that worsen the situation of citizens.
- Cancel the VAT rate increase.
- Revoke the "pension" law.
- Support the initiative of the Communist Party to hold the All-Russian referendum.
- Adopt a law on the moratorium on raising the retirement age.
- Support the adoption of the law on the establishment of a progressive scale of personal income tax.
- Cancel the regressive scale of insurance contributions, enter a flat scale (and so on).
Under the sheets of the popular survey against raising the retirement age, 3 thousand 104 signatures were collected at the rally.
On the same day, protest rallies organized by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation were held in Kuban in other cities: in Apsheronsk, Armavir, Kurganinsk, Timashevsk, Temryuk, Tuapse, Ust-Labinsk, Yeisk, Sochi, in the village of Mostovskom. Pickets were held in Novorossiysk.
Pay attention to the wide geography of the participants: the protest is going on all over the country, from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad, tens of thousands of residents of our country responded to the call. The Communists, of course, great, but this is not enough. After all, the adopted law will affect almost everyone. Not everyone has realized this yet. Our people are patient, accustomed to difficulties and hardships. He still believes everything that is shown on TV. And there we are now strongly inspired that working in old age is one sheer pleasure. Older people from the screens assure us that they do not want to stay at home in retirement and “rush into battle”, or rather, work. It is good when you shift the papers in the office from place to place or sit at the computer all day, and nobody has yet canceled the old sclerosis. And for those who are going to work on a construction site or on another physically heavy production until 65 years, how to be? Reduced reaction, vision, endurance, performance, etc. And there are also dispatchers, and drivers, and crane operators. Someone thought about them? And what pensioners will receive in return - a small increase in the pension, which inflation will increase later?
And I do not believe that there is no money for retirement in our country. I can tell you where to look for them. On fireworks and celebrations alone, so much money was thrown to the wind, just enough to increase pensions. This is our country, and only we must decide when and what to spend. What laws to take and when to retire go!
