Solidarity sends aid to Belarus
Yesterday, the Solidarity trade union announced that it will send an aid convoy with food to Belarus. The union has also established EUR 230,000 aid fund for Belarus.
At a Tuesday press conference Solidarity leader Piotr Duda issued an appeal for solidarity with Belarus, in which he stated that Alexander Lukashenko has chosen a path of violent confrontation and brutal pacifications towards those Belarusians who are manifesting their discontent. The authorities have resorted to barbaric violence and bestial cruelty, which have no rational substantiation apart from being a desperate defence of dictatorship.
According to Piotr Duda, the Solidarity convoy is to set off for Belarus today, but he also added that he did not know if it will be allowed to enter the country.
