  • Representatives of European journalistic unions spoke in support of their Belarusian colleagues on May 3

    The participants of the conference of the European Federation of Journalists joined the marathon of solidarity with Belarusian colleagues, which was launched by the Belarusian Association of Journalists and the Lithuanian Union of Journalists in Vilnius.


    We recall that the cam­paign start­ed on May 3 in Vil­nius. BAJ called on jour­nal­is­tic and human rights orga­ni­za­tions of the world, well-known pub­lic fig­ures to join the action.

    “The author­i­ties of Belarus con­tin­ue their bru­tal attack on jour­nal­ists and the media, effec­tive­ly putting inde­pen­dent jour­nal­ism with­in the coun­try on the verge of destruc­tion,” the BAJ state­ment says.

    As of the morn­ing of May 3, 2023, 33 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Belaru­sian inde­pen­dent media are in pris­ons and deten­tion facil­i­ties in Belarus.

    The pres­i­dent of the Euro­pean Fed­er­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists Maja Sev­er also joined the action.

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