Heroes of Dark Times

The EESC is hosting an online photo exhibition entitled Heroes of Dark Times to highlight the situation of the political prisoners and increase awareness of the dangers of the authoritarian and oppressive system in Belarus.

The series of photos highlights the violations of human rights and freedom of expression by the Belarusian government, who have detained over 1100 political prisoners. They form a living testimony of the unprecedented state-orchestrated repressions that hinder the Belarusian people in their courageous struggle for democracy.

The photo exhibition will be staged in collaboration with the EESC's External Relations Section (REX), with a meeting planned for 12 April to launch the exhibition virtually.

It features a series of 32 photos and will be held 100% virtually.

The exhibition will run from 11 April to 6 May 2022.
