Day 9: Belarus Free Theatre Co-Founder Natalia Kaliada explains the Give a Body Back protest campaign.

From Belarus Free Theatre's Website:

Belarus is the last country in Europe that has not yet abandoned the death penalty. Bodies of those executed are not returned to families. Cases of political kidnapping and murder are not investigated, and today there are 14 political prisoners in Belarusian jails, and dozens who are not rehabilitated.

Natalia Kaliada, Nicolai Khalezin, Irinia Bogdanova and Free Belarus Now staged a peaceful protest against the human rights violations in Belarus, shedding light on the hundreds of people who have “disappeared” or been executed.
