  • BAJ logo declared extremist

    The website, social media pages and logo of the Belarusian Association of Journalists have been included in the national list of extremist content. It is noteworthy that the name of the public organization was misspelled in the decision.

    Now peo­ple in Belarus can be held admin­is­tra­tive­ly liable for keep­ing any objects or texts with the BAJ logo. How­ev­er, the logo can be found on mul­ti­ple offi­cial doc­u­ments of the jour­nal­ist orga­ni­za­tion in dozens of state insti­tu­tions and agen­cies, in archives, on note­books, in the mag­a­zine Abazhur, which used to be pub­lished by BAJ, and so on.

    The new attacks on BAJ are undoubt­ed­ly a con­tin­u­a­tion of the polit­i­cal pres­sure on the orga­ni­za­tion and inde­pen­dent jour­nal­ists for their work.

    BAJ called on its fel­low jour­nal­ists in Belarus to remove all items bear­ing the orga­ni­za­tion’s logo from their homes and offices.
