Motion - The protection of youth rights and support of young political prisoners of Belarus


The European Youth Forum recognises the urgent need to protect youth rights and support young political prisoners in Belarus. This resolution addresses the increasing number of political prisoners that experience inhumane conditions during imprisonment, and calls for their immediate and unconditional release. It also emphasises the importance of international solidarity and cooperation in promoting human rights and democracy.

The European Youth Forum stands in solidarity with the Belarusian National Youth Council, RADA, and pledges to support their efforts. The Council of Members reaffirms its commitment to collaborating with RADA and its member organisations, to amplify their voices, advocate for their causes, and ensure that their work receives the international recognition it deserves.
