Stop soviet propaganda in omerta! sign now

Dear admins of Omerta Game Ltd.

We are writing this petition in the name of all post-soviet countries, which include most of Eastern Europe.
As we all know, Omerta is a mafia game. This is why we have been patient seeing families using soviet symbols, and referring to USSR as something glorious. But our patience is not unlimited. Naming a family "Redarmy" was the last drop.
Besides the game, there is also a community. Community is (or must be) protected by internal rules. As long as we played the game, we saw lots of racists, fascists and other kinds of discriminators punished. And this was good. Nobody has a right to use a country's or nation's tragedy to offend people.

The fact, that offends us most, is that some families are still permitted to use soviet names and symbols. We are aware that history lessons in Western Europe do not give proper information about war crimes of Soviet Union, performed by Stalin and other dictators.
We do understand some of those people simply do not understand the tragedy our countries suffered under soviet rule, and believe it is funny what they are doing. Still, it looks no different, that permitting kids play on a graveyard with bones.

Here are our statements:

1. It does offend us to see families allowed to call themselves "Redarmy". It is no different than call a family "Third Reich" or "CuCluxClan". The real Red Army killed millions of innocent Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian, Finnish, Czechoslovakian (current Czech and Slovakian), Hungarian, Russian, Ukrainian, Korean and other countries civilian residents.
Our parents and grandparents still carry alive memories of genocides, gulags, famines, destruction and forced assimilation, performed by Soviet Empire in our side of Iron Curtain. Numbers are even higher than those of Holocaust victims. And by numbers we do not mean any military casualties. Just murdered civilians, gulaged and raped women, children buried alive.

2. It does offend us to see families allowed to use soviet symbols just for fun and even having some people admire them. This is exactly the same as showing swastika to a Jewish person and making fun of it.
For example: swastikas have been used thousand year ago in India as a symbol of a sun. It was enough 20 or 30 years of wrong nazi usage, to get them frobidden all over the world.
The USSR symbol WAS INVENTED by soviets, and is still allowed after all what they did?
This is nothing else than a spit in the face, to promote symbols that refer to the coldblooded murderers of our nations. And we are tired of this.

We demand:

No families called "Redarmy" or any other referring to genocide, should be allowed in the game.

Every family and member, promoting soviet symbols must be punished. Symbols must be forbidden.

Otherwise we will be considering contacting relevant European Union institutions, since it's law protects our rights not to be discriminated in both real and virtual space.

With Respect,
Players from post-soviet countries and the supporters.
