More than 20 picketers called on the Belarusian authorities to release all political prisoners, who were jailed ahead of or just after the elections.

Protesters had posters Freedom for political prisoners in Belarus, Stop last dictator of Europe! and portraits of the Belarusians forcefully disappeared in 1999-2000. Picketers handed out leaflets with information about human rights abuses in Belarus.
