"Viasna" human rights activists together with the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs representatives organized a series of actions in the frames of the #FreedomLetters campaignto sign postcards to political prisoners in Belarus.

Human rights defenders and MPs visited three gymnasiums in Joniškis, Pabradė and Švenčionys, as well as two libraries in Gargždai and Palanga.

High school students, teachers and gymnasium principals, library staff and other citizens learned about the situation with political prisoners in Belarus after the presidential election last year and signed about 300 postcards for prisoners, including “Viasna members”.

#FreedomLetters campaign started on November 20, 2021, at the Future of Democracy international forum, when Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis urged everyone to join the solidarity campaign with Belarusian political prisoners and take three simple steps:

  • write and send a letter or a postcard to a political prisoner in Belarus;
  • take a photo and post it on social media;
  • use the #FreedomLetters hashtag.
