Liberal family stands with Belarus – the fight for freedom isn’t over

Last Thursday, 25 March, marked the Belarus Freedom Day. With the Lukashenko regime still holding onto power, the Belarus opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya launched a call for action to express solidarity with the people of Belarus and their continuous fight for democracy, freedom and fundamental rights. The ALDE Party responded to the call and organised a virtual protest to show its support.

In the European Parliament, our MEPs participated in a peaceful demonstration in Brussels. In 2020, Renew Europe group played a key role in the resolution on Belarus, which explicitly supports the Belarusian protesters and demands new, free and fair elections in accordance with international standards.

European Commission Vice-President Věra Jourová also joined the peaceful demonstration.

ALDE Party Vice-President Dita Charanzová shared a message of support and solidarity on the day.

In Lithuania, Liberalų sąjūdis party leader Viktorija Čmilytė-Nielsen, expressed her solidarity with a message of support.

The Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Thomas Byrne and German MP Michael Georg Link were also among the liberals who joined our virtual protest.
