Webinar “Where is Belarus heading?” #BelarusFuture
Six months have passed since the beginning of peaceful protests in Belarus
The leaders of the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs made a statement on the occasion of the Day of Solidarity with Belarus, which is celebrated on February 7.
“We stand in solidarity with the Belarusian people and continue to be inspired by the fact that, week after week, so many people take to the streets, demanding the right to determine their own future,” the committee chairman, Democrat Gregory Meeks, and the leading Republican on the committee, Michael McCall.
“The illegitimate regime of [Alexander] Lukashenko should have left long ago, allowing new, free and fair elections and the release of all political prisoners,” the statement went on to say.. “We are fully committed to working with our transatlantic allies to support the aspirations of the people of Belarus in their pursuit of democracy, human rights, the rule of law, and further respect for their country sovereignty.”.
Meanwhile, the international human rights organization Amnesty International reported that in the course of the campaign to eradicate dissent, the Belarusian authorities resort to harassment and intimidation of children..
Some children face years in prison, while others live in fear that their parents will go to jail or that they will be placed in government custody, Amnesty International said in a statement..
“During the brutal crackdown on dissent, the authorities treat children in a completely unacceptable way. Some children ended up in arbitrary detention and faced with trumped-up criminal charges, just like adults, ”says Aisha Dzhang, Senior Campaign Manager for Amnesty International.
