Activists from the civil campaign European Belarus and the Belarusian House in Warsaw, as well as members of the Belarusian diaspora in Poland gathered at the statue of Copernicus on Novy Svyat Street carrying a banner reading “Stop the Terror in Belarus.” Participants in the action carried white-red-white flags, portraits of political prisoners, and teddy bears—a symbol of the action of Swedish pilots in support of freedom of speech in Belarus.
Dmitry Bondarenko, a former political prisoner and the coordinator of European Belarus, and Dmitry Borodko, co-director of the Belarusian House in Warsaw, were present at the action.
Finally, an exhibition on contemporary Belarus opened in the Warsaw metro. Belarusian House reports that the exposition at the Sventokshiska station is devoted to the anniversary of the arrest of Ales Bialiatski. The exhibit consists of 10 posters that “show civil Belarus.” In the afternoon, visitors to the exposition had the chance to sign a postcard addressed to Ales Bialiatski in prison.
