Please sign the petition on change.org to persuade Satish Kumar to amend the editorial policy of The Ecologist. The magazine has printed a number of articles recycled from the extremist Counterpunch site and one by notorious right wing maverick Israel Shamir. These articles attacked Ukraine misrepresenting it's revolution and smearing the Ukrainian nation. Mr Kumar, who owns the journa,l is a decent man and I believe that he is unaware of what is being published in his name.
This is a quote from a communist leader speaking in the Kharkiv region in 1934:
"Famine in Ukraine was brought on to decrease the number of Ukrainians, replace the dead with people from other parts of the USSR, and thereby to kill the slightest thought of any Ukrainian independence."
- V. Danilov et al., Sovetskaia derevnia glazami OGPU_NKVD. T. 3, kn. 2. Moscow 2004. P. 572
