 President of the Republic of Kazakhstan
Nursultan Nazarbayev

Mister President!
Recently, at the Fifth World Congress of Kazakhs, you said:
"For every Kazakh the door to the motherland is open. We do not put any restrictions"
And I, a citizen of Poland, an ethnic Kazakh woman, decided to return to Kazakhstan, to my homeland to live here permanently.
Due to the fact that my mother died, I came to Kazakhstan to say goodbye to her, using the visa-free entry to Expo 2017. Last time I saw my mother in 2005, 12 years ago, and her voice was heard on the phone for the last time. In 2008. It is hurts that for all these years I have not seen or heard my mom because she was the most precious and holy person.
You have said at the Convention: "Wherever the Kazakhs live, they have only one historic homeland - it is Kazakhstan. We only have one homeland and this is a great country."

 Opposition leader wants to stay in Kazakhstan.

Recently, the situation in Kazakhstan has deteriorated drastically. Opposition is being persecute, people are fleeing en masse from the country, freedom of the press is more and more limited, people who dare to speak negatively about the current government are going to jail. Therefore, I decided to go back to Kazakhstan, to my homeland, and to fight for democracy here.
My mother died on July 11th, 2017, and I came to Kazakhstan for the funeral by using the visa-free possibility introduced for the time of the Expo 2017. Last time I saw my mom in 2005, 12 years ago, and I heard her voice on the phone for the last time in 2008. Of course, I am sad that all these years the Kazakh authorities were not allowing me to come back to my homeland and that so many years I have not seen my mother.
My colleagues from the Kazakh opposition were discouraging me go back, warning me that the danger is a real and that I can even be killed. I am aware of the danger, but as an oppositionist I felt obliged to go back and fight here on the spot. I will try to do everything so that there is no injustice in society, that human rights will be respected in all areas of life. I believe that the government should show people where the public funds are spent.
I represent ordinary citizens, so I ask for support from NGOs and ordinary people. Together we will win and change the world for the better, open and diverse place.
I actively act against human rights violations and restricted freedom of the press in Kazakhstan. I defend the political prisoners and the oppressed opposition activists. I work with many non-governmental organizations and social and political activists. All my life I am indifferent to injustice and I fight for human rights.
I am Kazakh woman, and my father was a participant and one of the founders of the movement “Alasz”, with risking his life he fought for the independence of my country.
I turned to the authorities of Kazakhstan to grant me a residence card but did not get any response so far.

Opposition leader returns to Kazakhstan.
Recently, the situation in Kazakhstan has deteriorated drastically. The opposition is being persecuted, people are escaping from the country, the freedom of the press is restricted, and the people who dare to speak negatively about the rulers are being sent to prison.
As a result, I decided to go back to my homeland, Kazakhstan, to fight for democracy. I have been preparing to leave for some time, I wanted to make use of the Expo, during which the visas were abolished - previously the authorities blocked me crossing the border. Unfortunately, due to my mother's death, I decided to expedite my trip to her funeral tomorrow. I last saw Mom in 2005, 12 years ago. The last time I have heard her voice was in 2008.
I am going to Kazakhstan tomorrow, on 12.07.2017.
My colleagues from the Kazakh opposition advise me to come and warn that there is a real danger that I may even be killed – as said Rozlana Taukina, the representative of the Kazakh Journalists Without Border. I am aware of the danger, but as an oppositionist I feel obliged to go and fight on the spot.
I will do everything to protect justice in society, to fight for the human rights in all areas of life. I think that the government should show people on what money from public funds is spent. I represent ordinary citizens; therefore, I am asking for support from NGOs and people. Together we will win and change the world to a better, more open and diverse place.
For many years I have been dealing with issues of respect for human rights and democratic change in post-Soviet countries.
I am the leader of Kazakhstan's opposition abroad, since 2002, I am the President of the Association "Wspolnota Kazachska", a Polish non-governmental "non-profit" organization working to promote and protect freedom and human rights, civil liberties and democracy development.
I work with many non-governmental organizations and social activists. I am an organizer and participant in actions supporting democratic change. I am a regular participant in the OSCE session in Warsaw, where I stand against human rights violations and restrict freedom of the press and speech.
I actively act against human rights violations and restrict freedom of the press in Kazakhstan. I defend the political prisoners and the oppressed opposition activists. I work with many non-governmental organizations and social and political activists. All my life I am indifferent to injustice and I fight for human rights.
As a Polish citizen, I turn to the authorities of the Republic of Poland for help and assistance during this difficult and dangerous mission.

"Kazakh opposition asks for meeting with Trump in Poland"

 President of the United States of America
Mr. Donald Trump

Dear President!

Because of your visit to Poland on 6 July 2017, we are asking for the opportunity to meet and present a tragic situation of human rights and increasing repression towards citizens in Kazakhstan.
Recently the Kazakh authorities are actively selling out and giving for a long-time lend huge areas of Kazakh land to the Chinese people. Citizens of Kazakhstan, in the fear of losing their motherland, are incessantly protesting, but the authorities are grumbling over the protests and arresting activists.

I am an activist from choice for the dissemination and protection of civil liberties. I am an activist of the democratic opposition of Kazakhstan, working for the promotion and protection of freedom, human rights, civil liberties and actions supporting the development of democracy in Kazakhstan.
For many years I have been actively fighting with human rights violations, I am an organizer and participant in actions supporting democratic changes. I am also helping political prisoners and opposition activists in the world.
We have to fight for civic freedoms every day, any signs of violations of the fundamental rights of citizens should be counteracted. I am also present in the defense of freedom of speech, press, assemblies, independent courts as well as the right to work, health care, education - that is all we need in Kazakhstan.
The US is a backbone of democracy and a country that supports democratic changes all over the world. I am confident that your meeting with the leader of the Kazakh opposition abroad will bring you closer to the situation in Kazakhstan and I hope that thanks to you there will be a democratic transformation in Kazakhstan in the near future.
