Katrin Göring-Eckardt and the team of Libereco

Libereco carried out an action for the release of Belarusian political prisoners in Hamburg on 2-4 May at the German Protestant Day.

More than 550 people signed our petition for the release of the 11 political prisoners and dozens also joined our facebook photo action.

Katrin Göring-Eckardt, Green Party, Vice President of the German Bundestag, expressed her support for the political prisoners with a special focus on Ales Bialiatski, as Ms. Göring-Eckardt has taken over a godparenthood for the Belarusian human rights defender.

Also Thomas Oppermann, Social Democratic Party, Speaker of SPD faction in German Bundestag, supported the action and called for the release of Belarusian opposition member Mikalai Statkevich.
