Please help us stop the people of Europe's last dictatorship being forgotten
Belarus is one of the world's least free countries. Ranked worse than Iran on press freedom, worse than Zimbabwe on human rights, opposition activists have 'disappeared' or died in disputed circumstances and youth leaders subjected to mock executions. Meanwhile tens of thousands of its citizens have been denied permission to leave the country and European leaders like Silvio Berlusconi and businesses turn a blind eye to the regime's worst abuses in the interests of profit.
Index on Censorship is fund raising so we can continue our work putting pressure on the EU and UK government to take free expression abuses in Belarus seriously.
