Belarus is hosting the World Ice Hockey Championship, which started last Friday and will end on 25 May. For once, this country – usually ignored by the media and international public opinion – will be in the spotlight.

FIDH has made 3 short animated films to denounce the human rights violations taking place in Belarus.  These abuses cannot be camouflaged by the Championship. These three 15-second films will be aired during 3 big “game-days” : 13 May Norway / Sweden, 15 May Finland/Belarus, and 20 May Russia/Belarus.

The first of these films is about people who speak out…

The second short film is about political prisoners in Belarus :

The last one is about enforced labour in Belarus :
