Yesterday was the International Day of Solidarity with Belarus. A number of events were held around the world. In the capital of Poland, there were several events at once.
The Solidarity Day celebration took place in the heart of Warsaw, in the Old Town. Hundreds of Belarusians gathered under their national flag. They opened the festivities with a dance, repeating the worldwide challenge of ‘Jerusalema’. Pavel Latushka, a member of the Presidium of the Coordinating Council, congratulated the Belarusians.
“We are on a wide path to our will, to a free Belarus,” said Latushka. “No matter how hard it is for us in these minutes, these months … We, the Belarusians, are united. We are united by the desire to live in a new free country. On this day we must remember all those who are behind bars, who are tortured by the regime, who are tortured on this day”.
Belarusians were congratulated at the highest level: a white-red-white flag flew over the town hall.
Warsaw also congratulated the Belarusians on billboards.
On February 7, the Palace of Culture and Science will change the color of illumination to white-red-white.
The initiative to hold an international Day of Solidarity with Belarus was taken by Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya. Actions were held in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, USA, Canada and other countries.
