REP Trade Union Leader In Biaroza: I Am Glad That Belarusians Want "To Be Called People"

It gives hope for the future.

Biaroza human rights activists traditionally celebrated the International Day of Human Rights Protection in the main street of the town, Radio Racyja reports.

Along with oral congratulations, residents received a special issue of the newspaper "Narodnaya Volia". 300 copies of the newspaper were distributed in just an hour.

This means that people are interested in human rights, Tatsiana Tarasevich, an activist of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada), head of the local branch of the REP trade union, ex-candidate to the "deputies" of the "house of representatives," says.

"I am very pleased that people were pleased to take the newspaper. They liked the theme of the day. People are tired of being treated like dirt. They want, as our poet said, to be called people. Even young and middle-aged people don't know about their rights, so they were happy to take the newspaper to "fill the gap," - Tatsiana Tarasevich explained.

"There is simply not enough information in the media. People are not informed, they are not told enough."

"It never even occurred to me to find out my rights. I have heard that they are guaranteed by the Constitution," - Biaroza residents say.

According to Tatsiana Tarasevich, only three people refused to take the newspaper. This is good news and gives hope for the best.
