  • Journalists are not criminals! An action was held in the center of Malmö in support of Belarusian colleagues

    The initiative to this gathering was taken by the “Organization for exchange between BAJ and SJF (Swedish Union of Journalists)” and invited were Frilans Syd, organization for freelancers in southern Sweden, Swedish Pen as well as staff journalists.

    Wednes­day 24 of May at lunch time – jour­nal­ists and writ­ers gath­er out­side the city coun­cil in cen­tral Malmö, Swe­den as part of Marathon of Sol­i­dar­i­ty

    Thank BAJ through  Patreon

    While show­ing the pho­tos of the 33 impris­oned BAJ mem­bers their names were read out loud, to show that they are remem­bered as indi­vid­u­als with a name, they are not anony­mous for us.

    The man­i­fes­ta­tion end­ed with greet­ings and thanks from Andrei Bas­tunets that free­lance jour­nal­ist Åsa Ohls­son read.

    And now the Marathon of Sol­i­dar­i­ty is passed on to Fin­land: A man­i­fes­ta­tion will take place on Fri­day 26th of May at the Finnish Union con­gress. 

    BAJ calls on col­leagues all over the world to sup­port the sol­i­dar­i­ty action!

    You can print por­traits of impris­oned col­leagues, take pic­tures with them in rec­og­niz­able places of your city and pub­lish them on social media with the tags #СвабодуЖурналістам and #BecauseThe­Jour­nal­ist, and also send us to office@baj.media or intercomm@baj.media.
