10.12.2013 FIDH and "Viasna" present the report "Forced Labor and the Pervasive Violation of Workers’ Rights in Belarus" on the Human Rights Day
Belarus authorities use of every means possible to feed the country’s economy to the detriment of its citizens’ economic and social rights. Internationally publicized as the «last European socialist paradise», Belarus forces large portions of its population to work, sometimes without pay and especially without the possibility to protest harsh or unfair conditions. These are the main observations of a report published today by FIDH and HRC Viasna.
