Belarusian human rights demonstration to take place in Vilnius
On August 4, 2015, a protest supporting Belarusian political prisoners will take place in Town Hall Square in Vilnius.
The demonstrators will protest for improved human rights in Belarus, plus the release of political prisoners in the country.
The event organisers chose August 4, because Ales Beliatsky, the prominent leader of the Belarusian human rights group, Vyasna, was detained on the day in 2011 on tax evasion charges.
He was granted early release from prison in June, 2014, despite being initially given a four-and-a-half year sentence.
"Despite Beliatsky’s early release in 2014, pressure on human rights activists remains,” the event protest organisers said in their statement. “There are at least six political prisoners in Belarus right now.”
