03.06.2012 at 01:30

On 31 May during the Week of Trust the meeting of the representatives of NGOs with the authorities of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was held with the topic “The trust to the government as the foundation for the development of civil society in Crimea.”

Many deputies are working without salary, live in ordinary homes, work for the benefit of people. But in the imagination of people, a deputy is `a fat rich person running in an expensive car who doesn’t do anything only stealing`. So, people don’t trust to the government. And the government is suffering of this, it doesn’t feel enough support, control from civil institutions, and needs more collaboration with NGOs.

“Do we need to go to the elections, and whom to trust?”
31.05.2012 at 01:39

On 30 May Simferopol active public figures met to discuss the question “Do we need to go to the elections, and whom to trust?” within the public campaign “Week of Trust”. October Ukrainian parliamentary elections to the Verkhovna Rada made the question hot.

Participants said that it’s hard to trust to the political parties which are not formed by the citizens, but by the will of a certain person, and its leader selects people to be in the political party”. “To come in the voting day and to cut the ballot is also a manifestation of one’s position, if you don’t trust to any of the candidates”. There was long argumentation ‘whether to choose the best from the worst’.
We concluded that the majority of the population does not trust to politicians, and a lot of the voters sells their votes for a small fee during the election, and suffer for next several years in poverty, when the government doesn’t provide a deserved living conditions for people. “The problem is in our mentality.” Only 1% of the population makes the civil society (mainly represented by the NGOs). Most people, especially adults do not understand what is the civil society, they can not and does not want to see any sense to assert ones’ rights.
Participants proposed to meet more frequently in order to develop the strategy for the development of the awareness of the importance of active citizenship among the population of the city.
Svetlana Yereschenko presented an independent social movement “CHESNO”, which came up with the idea to “sieve” all candidates. Sieve foresees the relevant criteria, such as:

  1. absence of violations of the rights and freedoms;
  2. constancy of the political positions by the will of voters;
  3. nothing to do with corrupt practices, etc.

On the website of the civil movement  the “Honestmeter” is to be introduced which will display a line of candidates according to the criteria.

The civil movement “CHESNO” helps to increase public confidence in the worthy candidates and thus is a part of the “Week of Trust” campaign.

On 28 May 2012 the Official opening of the ‘Week of Trust’ was organized by the Club of Young Leaders (CYL, Crimea) in partnership with the international NGO Foundations for Freedom in the Information Press-Centre (Simferopol, Crimea, Ukraine).

Professor Rajmohan Gandhi (former President of the Initiatives of Change International) joined to the meeting using Skype. He shared his wisdom about trust:

If I want to help to solve the problems of the world, I have to say to myself: Ever if others have a much larger rolling in hitting the problems in the world, if there is bigger contribution, then I can made to the problem, I will correct atrocity.

I will fight against injustice, I will fight against oppression with all determination and passion I have. But I will not allow my bitterness, my greed, and my personal ambitions to add to the problems of the world.

The opposite of trust is suspicion, but also the opposite of trust is control. So, if I want my children grow and become competent, and become confident, I must trust them, ever if they make mistakes, I must take my hands off I must give them freedom. So trust really means giving those around me freedom to do what they want.
