EPISODE 11 A fascist regime in Belarus

Show notes

Julia Cimafiejeva and Alhierd Bacharevic are both internationally acclaimed writers and poets from Belarus. But the situation in their homeland is so dire that instead of concentrating on the craft of writing they have turned into political activists: "Our dictator of 26 years in power has installed a regime which is comparable to Nazi Germany", they claim. On the **International day of Human rights ** Cimafiejeva and Bacharevic sat down with "Stimmen für die Freiheit" to denounce the growing number of political prisoners, torture and extrajudicial killings in Belarus: "Human rights, freedom of thought and expression and civil liberties are violated on a scale unknown in most other European states." In this Episode they read each one of their poems about the courage of resistance to the regime and the reluctance of Europe to come to the aid of Belorussians living in constant fear and repression.
