Action at IIHF conference: ”Don’t play with the dictator!”
hockey3

Early this morning the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) met at Clarion hotel in Stockholm for a conference. Östgruppen – Swedish Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights arranged an action and welcomed the delegates with leaflets, saying ”See you in Minsk 2014!” At first sight, the leaflets looked like official material from the hockey federation. Looking closer inside, the delegates could see information about the political prisoners in Belarus and about the people in charge of the hockey world championship in Belarus next year – all blacklisted by the EU for their crimes against human rights (banned from traveling to the EU).
