Belarusian Solidarity Day – 16 August
In Belarus NOTHING has changed: the arrests still continue, political prisoners, including Alexander Kazulin, Dmitry Dashkevich, Artur Finkevych and others remain behind bars, the persecution of the opposition continues.
Only the press cameras have gone elsewhere.
On this 16th day of the month, remember those imprisoned and persecuted in Belarus. Light your candles with people in Belarus and tell your politicians and media that by ignoring human rights abuse we are abetting it!
