Ingen puck för Lukasjenka!

Diktator Lukasjenka genomför en enorm satsning inför ishockey-VM 2014. Han lägger stor personlig prestige i VM-projektet. Det skulle räcka att en enda delegation vid internationella ishockeyförbundets kongress i Helsingfors i maj begär att frågan tas upp på dagordningen, för att det ska finnas en chans att Lukasjenka fråntas detta PR-jippo. Den svenska delegationen består av Peter ”Foppa” Forsberg, Mikael Peterson och Christer Englund. De har enligt uttalanden fortfarande inte bestämt sig för om de tänker lyfta frågan vid kongressen, så nu gäller det att ligga på… Det är här DU kommer in i bilden. Skriv till den svenska delegationen och kräv att de inte håller diktatorn om ryggen. Ingen puck för Lukasjenka, Foppa!
