  • The Union of Journalists of Finland held a rally in support of Belarusian political prisoners who worked in media

    The Council of the Union of Journalists expressed support and solidarity with the Belarusian colleagues who are now behind bars.

    Finnish jour­nal­ists held a meet­ing dur­ing which they held pho­tos of impris­oned jour­nal­ists in their hands. The names of their Belaru­sian col­leagues were read out at the event.

    “Many Euro­pean jour­nal­is­tic orga­ni­za­tions par­tic­i­pate in the same demon­stra­tion of sup­port. Includ­ing Lithua­ni­ans and Swedes,” says the inter­na­tion­al affairs spe­cial­ist of the Union of Jour­nal­ists of Fin­land Sal­la Nazarenko.

    There are 33 jour­nal­ists behind bars in Belarus.

    The series of sol­i­dar­i­ty actions for Belaru­sian media work­ers in cap­tiv­i­ty start­ed in Vil­nius on May 3 with a joint action of BAJ and the Lithuan­ian Union of Jour­nal­ists. Then BAJ part­ners from jour­nal­is­tic orga­ni­za­tions around the world joined it.

    BAJ calls on col­leagues around the world to sup­port the sol­i­dar­i­ty action!

    You can print por­traits of your impris­oned col­leagues, take pic­tures with them at famous sights of your city (not in Belarus) and post them on social media with the tags #СвабодуЖурналістам and #BecauseThe­Jour­nal­ist, and also send them to us office@baj.media or intercomm@baj.media.
