Tomorrow, April 9, the next trial of AleksandrMolchanov
is to be held in Zhodino City Court. Recently, Our Generation members
have visited his mother, Galina Molchanova.
not only a moral goal when we visited Galina Molchanova. Let us remind
that exactly a week ago we published the article about Molvanovs family
– A Forgotten Hero, where the author urged
the Belarusian public to express their solidarity and help the mother
of the political prisoner. In particularly, Our Generation brought forward
the idea to reanimate Galina’s friend that was ruined by the KGB during
the search (her computer). Remarkably, almost all the independent internet
resources of the country have spread the information. Thanks to the people
who care, it took the Our Generation initiators just a week to reanimate
the computer for Galina Molchanova and offer her some additional help.
It was the first time for the last several weeks that we have seen Galina
Molchanova smiling. No doubt, it’s the victory of all the people who care
and who have taken part in this initiative.
TatsianaZelko, Our Generation’s leader, comments on the situation:
--- This article was written in the framework of Our Generation’s
campaign Freedom is what is inside us. We do our best and try to support
the political prisoners and their families at this hard and controversial
time. What has happened demonstrates that these activities are indeed
needed. Unfortunately, there are too many “Forgotten Heroes” in Belarus
who need our support. The situation has clearly shown that Belarusians
are ready to demonstrate their solidarity. We will keep doing that and
might also broaden our activities...
Our Generation is genuinely grateful to Igor Lednik, public activist from
Borisov, and the editorial staff of the BorisovskieNovosti (Borisov News)
newspaper for the technical support for the repair of Galina Molchanova
