Famous Russian poet expressed support to Belarusian hunger-strikers
Natalia Gorbanevskaya, Giedroycs companion-in-arms, came to Minsk to participate in a conference dedicated to his 100th anniversary. When she learned about the strike she said: I am really worried that it is young people who are doing this.
She also gave some pieces of advice concerning the strike: One should start a relay hunger-strike, not an open-ended one. It is more efficient in this situation.
