Human rights defenders held an action against the death penalty in Belarus during the Town Day and the Dazhynki festival in Malaryta.

They participated in a sportive race wearing T-shirts Say No to Death Penalty. Meanwhile, the human rights defender from Davyd-Haradok Vasil Matusevich even won the third place in his age category.

’We dedicated this race to the abolition of the death penalty in Belarus, the only European country that still uses this inhumane penalty,’ commented the human rights defender Uladzimir Malei.
