#EPStandsBYyou - postcards to Belarusian political prisoners

From 11 March to 14 March, the second edition of the project #EPStandsBYyou will take place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

#EPStandsBYyou is an inter-party initiative of Members of the European Parliament, including ECR MEP Anna Fotyga, under the auspices of President Roberta Metsola. The initiative is about bringing attention to the human rights situation in Belarus, in particular the situation of political prisoners that are being kept by Lukashenka’s regime unlawfully in prisons, under constant terror and in unhuman conditions. The first edition was organised in December 2022.

A booth will be set up, where each Member of the European Parliament can sign and send an individual postcard to one of Belarus’ 1,500 political prisoners. This booth will be conveniently located right next to the entrance of the hemicycle in Strasbourg.

Opening hours of the booth are the following:

• Monday 11/03 from 17h00 to 19h00

• Tuesday 12/03 from 9h00 to 18h00

• Wednesday 13/03 from 9h00 to 18h00

• Thursday 14/03 from 9h00 to 12h00

On Wednesday afternoon, President Metsola and co-organisers of the event will sign a postcard together.
