“Viasna” presents a special web-page about the death penalty
At present the Human
Rights Center "Viasna " offers its readers a separate web
page with the latest news and archival information gathered as a part
of the campaign "Human Rights Defenders against the death
penalty in Belarus": dp.spring96.org.
Simple and easy navigation will help the visitors quickly find the information structured in sections and available in four languages - Belarusian, Russian, Polish and English.
Clicking on this link, http://dp.spring96.org, anyone can sign a petition addressed to the Belarusian authorities to abolish the death penalty.
Among the permanent columns are: "News", "Persons”, (addresses and statements of well-known public figures of Belarus and other countries who joined the campaign of human rights defenders), “Videos” (documentary and animated films, music videos and video clips created by the campaign) and "Photo" (photos from events and activities held during the campaign).
Moreover, the web-page contains visual attributes of the campaign "Human Rights Defenders against the death penalty in Belarus" – banners, layouts of stickers, posters, postcards, prints on T-shirts and badges.
Bear in mind that the campaign “Human Rights Defenders against the death penalty in Belarus” has been held since 2009 with the aim to put an end to the use of the death penalty in the country and foster the accession of Belarus to the European values. Belarus remains the only country in Europe to adjudicate and to carry out executions.
