On 25 September, the friends and colleagues of Ales Bialiatski staged a festive event in Minsk Nezalezhnastsi Square to congratulate the imprisoned leader of Viasna on his 49th birthday.

“Happy birthday, Ales!

A prison cell is not the best place to have a birthday party, so we wish you a quick release to carry on with helping people, which you have been doing over the past 15 years!” – postcards with these words were sent to Ales Bialiatski on the day.

The activists then moved to Minsk detention center in Valadarski Street to release dozens of white and red balloons outside the prison where Ales Bialiatski is held.
