The activist urged pensioners to unite to fight for the return of benefits.
Activist of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Hanna Akinchyts made a special video message as part of a campaign for the return of benefits to labor veterans, the press service of the BCD reports.
“We honestly worked for thirty years and more, and now we have been equated to those who receive the so-called social pension. And we are now just retirees who “eat” the budget and who are of no use,”– she said.
“We, labor veterans, will fight for our rights. The Act on Labor Veterans must be reinstated and enforced. The state should really take care of us,” – the activist said.
