Nine journalists are behind bars just for doing their job in Belarus. All are victims of the indiscriminate repression launched by the regime of illegitimate President Lukashenko. Some are serving an unjustified harsh sentence. Others are awaiting criminal trials. The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) joins the call of the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ) and invites you to send them a letter of support.

Let’s support them with letters! Don’t forget to attach an envelope for the return letter, or better yet, a few!

Here are the postal details of the nine journalists illegally detained in Belarus:
