Political Prisoners’ Birthdays


For June 28, 1214 persons have been recognized as political prisoners in Belarus, and the number has been increasing steadily.

PEN Belarus, as an association of writers, is particularly concerned about the fate of cultural workers who have been unjustly imprisoned. In July, 8 political prisoners somehow involved in the process of cultural development of our country, will celebrate their birthdays behind bars. They are:

Viktoryja Hrankoŭskaja, former BNTU student (5 July); Siarhiej Sparyš, composer (11 July); Mikałaj Sasieŭ, dance teacher (16 July); Ivan Viarbicki, artist-designer, cartoonist (17 July); Alaksiej Sančuk, musician (18 July); Zmicier Daškievič, publicist, author (20 July); Viktar Łosik, copywriter (22 July); Julija Marčanka, musician (23 July).
