United 4 Belarus

The United 4 Belarus campaign launched today.

Belarus is Europe's last dictatorship and has Presidential elections on 19th March. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness and promote liberal democracy in Belarus.

You can find out how to get involved here. It's a Lib Dem campaign (actually, a Lib Dem Youth and Students campaign) but should be of interest to anyone, of any political persuasion, who is interested in democracy on our geopolitical doorstep.

[NB: I've just recommended that they produce a sidebar linky thing so you can support the campaign from your own blogs. It should be up by tomorrow]

    Thanks for the support - we at LDYS nearly had our campaign plans pulled out from under our feet when they decided to put the election date forward by two months with cynicism that even Blair would be proud of, but we've managed to adapt.

    Campaign banners are now available for bloggers or anyone else with a webpage who would like to show their support at United4Belarus.org.uk

    The website's gone -- you may want to link to the internet archive or remove your banner...?
