Dear Mr. Ambassador,

As one of 650,000 Rusyn-Americans, I am most concerned about the Slovak government's recent reproach to its Rusyn minority.

I and other Rusyn-Americans protest what appears to be a new attitude of repression of Rusyns in Slovakia. Among the recent actions which demonstrate this are:

I request that the Slovak government demonstrate itself as a democratic state by honoring its own constitution, which assures rights to all its minorities. Restore funding to the Rusyn Renaissance Society and its publications and proceed with the implementation of the Rusyn language in the schools and on the radio.
