London ice hockey players against world championship in Minsk (Photo)


Members the University of London ice hockey team (London Dragons) stand against holding the IIHF Wold Championship in Minsk in 2014.

Team player Adrien Beauduin wrote this in a letter to charter97.org website:

“I used to live in Belarus and I support the struggle of people of Belarus for freedom.

When I asked my team fellows if they were ready to support this idea, I expected to see hesitation. But all of them said they do not want their national teams to play in a country where political prisoners are behind bars.

We won the British universities championship and all the lads (and one girl) were happy to make a photo with posters for human rights in Belarus. We have players from Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, the UK and Slovakia.
