Belarusian anarchist political prisoner Aliaksandr Frantskevich released – Sept 2013

In February/March this year, the AF and Anarchist Black Cross groups organised an infotour with the Belarussian ABC and our Belarusian contacts in the International of Anarchist Federations. The tour was to build solidarity with anarchists imprisoned by the regime. http://www.afed.org.uk/news-and-events/334-belarus-abc-infotour-2013-initial-uk-dates-in-february-a-march.html

We are very happy to announce that Aliaksandar Frantskievich has just been released from prison.

He will be under police supervision for 6 months after the release.

Aliaksandr Frantskevich, who served his term in No. 22 Ivatsevichy correctional colony, was released early in the morning of 3rd September. His mother and activists from the opposition organisation met him outside the prison. He will go to Navapolatsk to register with the police.

This leaves five young men in jail for their convictions. They are inside for us; we are outside for them.
