Motion on Non-Discrimination of Young Belarusian Activists and Support for Democratic Principles in Europe

20/05/2022

Over the past two years representatives of independent youth organizations in Europe, Belarusian youth NGOs, have shown their strong determination and will to revitalise democracy and to defend youth rights.

Representatives of civil society, including member organisations of the Belarusian National Council RADA, have experienced various types of discrimination. Hundreds and thousands of young people from Belarus were forced to leave their country for security reasons, as well as to Ukraine. Tens of thousands were arrested in Belarus, over a thousand are still in prisons and deprived of all their democratic rights and the right to live freely in their country.

All these people are either political prisoners or political refugees.
