Dublin: HR activists remind about Ales Bialiatski
On 6 December activists of the human
rights organization Front-Line Defenders held a picket in support of
human rights defenders, dated to the opening of a session of the OSCE
Council of Ministers.
The aim of the action was to draw the public attention to the development of the OSCE mechanism aimed at the protection of human rights defenders by creation of the mandate of the Special Papporteur on human rights defenders.
The picketers held portraits of the human rights defenders who were either killed or imprisoned, including a poster with the demand to release the imprisoned head of the Human Rights Center “Viasna” Ales Bialiatski.
