The Human Rights Center "Viasna" has joined the campaign, launched by the Belarusian House in Warsaw with the approach of the major winter holidays – Christmas and New Year.

By signing holiday cards, we want to strengthen the courage and hope for the better among the victims of political repressions, who are kept in jail because of their political views and cannot celebrate the holidays with their beloved.

We are sure that solidarity is a very important thign, we need to express our support and show that we
yearn for their release and remember them!" write the organizers of the campaign.

In their postcards, “Viasna” activists expressed their solidarity with the political prisoners which will most probably spend the holidays behind bars – the politician Mikalai Statkevich, the young activists of youth organizations Ihar Alinevich, Mikalai Dziqadok, Artsiom Prakapenka and Yauhen Vaskovich, believing that the sixth prisoner, Eduard Lobau, would be released from jail before the holidays.

All people of good will can send their congratulations and words of support to the political prisoners on these addresses.
