Today an international solidarity action for Belarus was held all over Europe, organized by Young European Federalists. In Stockholm the action against death penalty and for freedom in Belarus, was organized by Info Belarus and the Swedish Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights (Östgruppen).

We jointly walked through town and put gags on Stockholm’s statues. The gags symbolize the oppression, silencing of journalists, writers, oppositional politicians, musicians and others in Belarus. We want to show the Belarusian people that we simply do not forget about their suffering, and that we are supporting them in their struggle for freedom, says Isabel Sommerfeld, founder of Info Belarus.
