Action in Prague: human rights evicted

, 2012-03-15

In the morning of 6 February, cars with furniture and slogans: “Human rights got evicted” appeared near the entrance of the Belarusian Embassy in the Czech Republic, marking the start of an action in support of human rights defender Ales Bialiatski and the Human Rights Center “Viasna”.

Bookcases, tables, computers, lamps and a toilet sink – all these things were unloaded from the cars there. Posters with the slogan “Evicted!” and “Freedom to Ales Bialiatski!” were put atop the furniture. This is the way the action organizers reacted to the verdict to Ales Bialiatski – 4.5 years in high-security prison with confiscation of assets (including the apartment where the office of the Human Rights Center “Viasna” is situated).
