We call on the Belarusian authorities for an immediate halt to the abuse of fundamental rights of all those who speak out. We also appeal to governments worldwide to strongly condemn and demand an end to attacks against writers, artists, and cultural workers in clear retaliation for their attempts to raise their concerns and combat injustice.
To give the petition wider impact, do consider sending it to the Belarusian embassy in your own country, if there is one, as well as to your country’s representative in Belarus.
You can find the addresses of the embassies and diplomatic representatives on this useful link:
Please do let us know if you get a response.
Please also share the petition on your own social media platforms and websites.
Thank you so much once again for your support for freedom of expression in Belarus,
