Helping an activist who was forced to leave the country after pressure

  • Story

In 2020, like many others in Belarus, I became actively involved in the political life of the country. I participated in meetings of local activists, helped organize pickets to collect signatures and meetings of voters. I also participated in the organization of fund-raising to help the victims of politically motivated persecution (to pay the fines, stay in TDFs, lawyer's fees, etc.). 

At the same time, I was also convicted under the notorious Article 23.34 part 1. Some time later I lost my job, having been fired at the behest of the authorities. Recently I was told by the FID that a criminal case had been opened regarding the above-mentioned fundraising and they were going to call me in for questioning as a witness. Not waiting for further developments, which in our reality could have gone in a negative scenario, I decided to leave the country as soon as possible. 

Now I need help to relocate to Poland, where I can normally get legalized and find a job. I thank everyone for their solidarity!

How much do I need?

1030€ — to cover the costs of staying in a transit country for the duration of the humanitarian visa to Poland; ticket to Poland; costs of settling down in a new place.
