(en) ait russia: Ukraine: The strike of cultural workers for the right to work [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 May 2020 09:47:25 +0300

More than 250,000 people officially employed in the Ukrainian sphere of culture have been unemployed during quarantine measures. Among them are actors, musicians, choreographers, event organizers, technical personnel of light, sound and stage, decorators, cinema workers and people of other professions, without which it is impossible to imagine the cultural life of the country. ---- In their opinion, the quarantine exit plan was developed by the government for all sectors except them. Therefore, in the evening, May 12, within the framework of the All-Ukrainian cultural strike "StopKulturniyKarantin", a spectacular flash mob took place: at 22:00 on the iconic locations of Ukrainian cities, rays of light were turned into the clouds.
So, in Kharkov, spotlights in support of those who lost their jobs were lit in three places. Art Factory "Mechanics", KhNATOB and Gorky Park. The Kharkov segment of Telegram is filled with impressive frames of the night sky. In general, support for the action was announced in two dozen cities of Ukraine.

"It seems that we do not exist. Restaurants were allowed summer areas and take-away, hairdressers - pre-registration and clear requirements for social distance, even for shopping centers - restrictions on the number of visitors. The plan is ready for almost all sectors, except for the culture and entertainment industry. It seems that we are not in the script of the government, "the organizers said in a statement.

"The action # stopculture quarantine is designed to draw the attention of the government to the fact of the existence of the cultural industry in Ukraine and to begin a dialogue with its representatives regarding a possible scenario for quitting quarantine."

"Give us the opportunity to work, talk with us how we can jointly develop a quarantine exit plan and revive the multifaceted cultural sphere of Ukraine," the statement says.
