Street Politkovskaja, Milan, Italy

Please consider the following an endorsement of the campaign to rename a street in Milan in honor of Anna Politkovskaya, the tragically murdered Russian journalist who was also a stalwart defender of democracy and human rights in Russia, and who moreover was one of the very few reliable sources of information on the Russian government’s brutal actions in Chechnya. We live in perilous times. The survival of democracy and human rights worldwide cannot be taken for granted. Therefore any action, no matter how small or seemingly symbolic, will make a difference. Honoring Anna Politkovskaya’s legacy is the least we can do to keep that flame burning.
