JEF members and other human rights activists will gag prominent statues in cities all around the world, to symbolically recall the silence forced on Belarus’ citizens by the regime of Alexander Lukashenko.
thenewfederalist strongly supports the Free Belarus Action: as a contribution, we will provide an extensive covering of the activities, while stimulating a deeper reflection on the challenges faced by human rights defenders in the country. Exceptionally, in the course of this week we will publish one article per day to explore the nature of Lukashenko’s blatanty undemocratic regime under different angles and perspectives.
Articles published on this Belarus themed week on thenewfederaliast include:
Our work will hopefully contribute to the essential goal of raising awareness on Belarus citizens’ violated rights and freedoms: ideally, it will also encourage a debate on the urgency of a single European foreign policy, to re-establish trough a consistent and un-ambigious approach a EU credibility in front of Europe’s last dictatorship. It’s time for a Free Belarus and once again, it is time for Europe.
