Belarusians Abroad

Declaration by the Coordinating Committee of Belarusians of Canada

The events taking place in Belarus after the so called elections show yet again the terrible truth about the dictatorial regime that for the last 16 years has settled in the center of Europe.

The presidential candidates were brutally attacked as result of provocations, peaceful demonstrators, mainly young people, were beaten and detained. State media presenting a false picture of the event while desecrating national symbols are but one link in chain that throttles all that is bright and pure in the country.

The Coordinating Committee of Belarusians of Canada protests the persecution of people who genuinely love Belarus, who are struggling for her independence, for free democratic elections, and a future, in which there will be no room for lies, violence and abuse.

We are calling on the democratic forces of the world to condemn the bloody Lukashenka regime, and to support those who are striving for freedom and for fair elections in Belarus.
