On 18 March the Belarusian Popular Front central office will host the presentation of the book ‘Akrestsina Everyday Life. Diaries by Political Prisoners’, a joint project of Belarusian youth activists and human rights activists.
The edition features stories by activists that had to serve their administrative terms in Minsk Offenders Isolation Center in Akrestsin Street in 2006-2008, including UCPB leader Anatol Liabedzka, artist Aliaksei Marachkin and a number of youth activists. The diaries are supplemented with detailed comments, which turn it to a documentary survey on everyday life of Belarusian political prisoners.
The edition is prefaced by human rights activist Ales Bialiatski.
