  • Online solidarity marathon “We care!” to be held on July 29. Proceeds to support political prisoners and their families

    The fight against injustice and evil is a long-distance race. On Saturday, July 29, Belarusian independent media will unite to hold an online solidarity marathon "We care!” All proceeds will go to support political prisoners and their families. More than 20 independent media will participate in the event. BAJ will also join the action.

    The ini­tia­tive was pro­posed by Vol­ha Har­buno­va, Com­mis­sion­er for Social Pol­i­cy of the Unit­ed Tran­si­tion­al Cab­i­net of Belarus, and her team.

    Dona­tions will be col­lect­ed dur­ing the online event, which will be broad­cast simul­ta­ne­ous­ly on many inde­pen­dent YouTube chan­nels from 10 am to 10 pm time on July 29.

    Pro­ceeds will be dis­trib­uted to funds, ini­tia­tives and orga­ni­za­tions that help polit­i­cal pris­on­ers and their fam­i­lies.

    The orga­niz­ers urge view­ers of the marathon in Belarus to take secu­ri­ty pre­cau­tions: avoid shar­ing, lik­ing and com­ment­ing on the broad­cast from your per­son­al accounts, and donate mon­ey only from for­eign bank accounts.

    More than 20 inde­pen­dent media out­lets, includ­ing Bel­sat TV, Euro­ra­dio, Zerka­lo, Zvy­cha­jny Ranak, RFE/RL, Radio Unet, Coun­try for Life, as well as the Belaru­sian Inves­tiga­tive Cen­ter, Brest­skaya Gaze­ta, Malan­ka Media, Medi­a­zona, Nasha Niva, Radio Rat­cy­ja, Sal­i­dar­nast, BPN/Pozirk, Hrod­na. Life, Kyky.org, Nex­ta, Reform.by, Tribuna.com and oth­ers.

    BAJ will also par­tic­i­pate in the marathon. We also use this oppor­tu­ni­ty to remind of the marathon in sol­i­dar­i­ty with the jour­nal­ists of Belaru­sian polit­i­cal pris­on­ers, which start­ed in May in Vil­nius.

    Ger­many, Swe­den, Fin­land, Den­mark and oth­er coun­tries have already joined the action.
