Declaration of the MTÜ KOOS RAHU EEST EESTIS movement for peace in Estonia to the Government of the Republic of Estonia.
We are the delegates of the KOOS/TOGETHER Peace Movement, unanimously approved and adopted a joint declaration in which we demand an immediate cessation of energy purchases on commodity exchanges and an exit from the exchange energy market. We also demand to conclude long-term contracts with direct suppliers at the most favorable prices, this applies to all energy resources and hydrocarbons. The short-sighted policy of the European Union, with the support of the government of the Republic of Estonia, which by force imposed the sanctions policy on all member states of the European Union, led to the formation of speculative energy prices, rising prices for the entire social basket and an unprecedented increase in inflation, especially in the Republic of Estonia, as a result of which the welfare of the Estonian people began to fall rapidly.
With our appeal, We demand that the current government of the Republic of Estonia, immediately initiate a process by your decree, and also do everything possible to quickly leave the energy exchange market and speculative commodity exchanges. This applies to all energy carriers. We require fixing the price of electricity for the domestic consumption market in Estonia by setting a price limit approved by the Competition Board in order to avoid rising prices for households and shutting down industrial enterprises. We ask you to use the allocated CO2 quotas for their intended purpose, i.e. to generate electricity, and not to make speculative transactions on the stock exchanges. We call for the full resumption of operation of the oil shale boilers and mines of all Estonian power plants, which are still idle. We demand to increase the capacities operating on local fuel (oil shale) in order to preserve the energy independence of the state and prevent further price increases against the background of the general economic crisis. We also demand that long-term contracts be concluded with direct suppliers at the most favorable prices and that the people of Estonia not be exposed to the risk of facing autumn-winter in cold and dark housing due to exorbitant prices for heating and electricity, and at the same time that housing associations do not go bankrupt due to private debts that arose precisely because of the short-sighted economic policy of the Republic of Estonia.
At the same time, we would like to inform the entire Estonian people that we will launch a parallel people's initiative to collect signatures in support of the demands specified in the declaration in order to put pressure on the Government of the Republic of Estonia. If within a month you do not accept a decree on the fulfillment of our demands, we will proceed to legal proceedings and declare our no confidence in the government of the Republic of Estonia, as well as launch an action to hold regular mass rallies, and take other actions, in accordance with the Constitutional procedure until fully satisfied our requirements.
Our movement calls on all political and social movements, all the people of Estonia, including especially authoritative economists, analysts and entrepreneurs to join our team's call to stop the recession.
