Yesterday night we received the following letter:
Dear Right to Freedom, I am writing to you because I feel very indignant at what happened today in the morning. The dormitory administration, where I live, came to our place this morning and forced us to sign a paper instructing us to have the light on in our room from 8 p.m till 8.30 p.m. on the 16 day (Freedom Day). What would have happened if I had refused to sign the paper does not need explaining. This shows that the authorities are afraid of even such actions. I call on everyone: Light up a candle for 15 minutes and tell your friend and relations about this, because FREEDOM must not be just a word void of any meaning!"
Ordinary student. (I do not sign the letter because I am a student of a state university and so may be expelled because of this letter).
P.S. Please publish this letter because I can no longer stand the oppression.
