British stars voice support for political prisoners


Famous actors have addressed British Prime Minister David Cameron with a request to contribute to the Belarusian political prisoners’ release, Guardian reports.
Joanna Lumley, Sam West, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Adjoa Andou, Mark Rylance and Simon Callow recorded video messages to David Cameron highlighting the plight of political prisoners held under the autocratic regime of the Belarusian dictator.
“Today, I appeal to David Cameron, prime minister of my country, to use the power of morality in politics, to disturb the sleep of conscience and urge Aliaksandr Lukashenka, Europe’s last dictator, to end the torture of his own people and release all political prisoners before the new year,” Ralph Fiennes said.
