    The Central and Eastern European Council in Canada demands that Walmart, Amazon and eBay must end sales of items that glorify Soviet regime

    RIGA, Sep 11 (LETA) – The Central and Eastern European Council in Canada, representing the interests of nearly four million Canadians of Central and Eastern European heritage, demands that Walmart, Amazon and eBay, immediately cease all sales of items on their online stores that glorify The Soviet Union, Soviet repression, Josef Stalin and the institutions used to carry out Soviet genocide in nations occupied by the Soviet regime, including but not limited to the KGB.

    The council says in its statement that tens of millions of people were killed by the Soviet and Soviet backed communist regimes, while many more millions were deported, arrested, and permanently displaced as refugees.

    Large numbers came to Canada to seek safety in the 1940’s and 50’s, where nearly four million live today. The Central and Eastern European Council in Canada represents the Albanian, Czech, Slovak, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Ukrainian communities in Canada.

    "Companies such as Walmart, Amazon and eBay, should be ashamed to promote, and profit from, shirts and other merchandise that glorifies the Soviet regime and the genocide and terror in which it engaged," the statement says.
