Commemoration of the Smolensk Tragedy
London Rally Trafalgar Square 2-4pm 10 April 2011
Sunday 10 April 2011 is the first anniversary of the Smolensk Tragedy when the President of Poland and 95 members of the Polish government died at Smolensk airport, Russia, on their way to the Katyn commemoration, when the Tu154 crashed on landing. On Sunday, millions of Poles will take to the streets of Warsaw and other cities and global events are planned for the day. The Poles will publicly remember the dead and protest against the way the investigation into the air crash has been left to the Russians by their current government and against the Russian MAK report which has been shown to have been falsified, and the fact that Poland’s own Chief Prosecutor has been denied the wreckage of the plane, the black boxes and access to original data.
The London Rally at Trafalgar Square will begin with a human cross made from 96 funerary candles, followed by a call for an international commission to investigate the air crash. A recent petition for this has already reached the half million mark and is expected to double by Sunday.
Based on the transcripts of crew and control tower exchanges already in the public domain through the internet, there is a reasonable suspicion that an unprecedented crime took place presented as an accident to the world media. A spokesman for one of the participating groups in the Rally said today that letting the Russians investigate this matter is like letting Col.Gadafi investigate the Lockerbie Disaster.
The Polish Prosecution Service has demanded 222 key documents from the Russians of which 36 have been supplied. It is known that the doomed flight was organised by a communist agent Jerzy Turowski who was made the Honorary Ambassador in Moscow beforehand. The mother of the Late President, Jadwiga Kaczynska has made a public statement on film, distributed today, that she believes that Gen.Anodina (MAK) has lied publicly. Komsomolska Prawda, the Russian newspaper has maintained not only that the plane was forced to land in fog conditions by a drunk Polish General but also that the Katyn crime was not committed by the Russians but by the Germans. This has been shown as contrary to the evidence now in the public domain. The Poles demand the truth. be out. Similar rallies will take place in Chicago and New York on the day.
