An open letter to the U.S. House of Representatives

Please Co-Sponsor HRes 124 "Supporting the People of Belarus"

128 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

I would like to request your support for House Resolution 124 “Supporting the People of Belarus and Their Democratic Aspirations” by co-sponsoring it. The resolution reaffirms the House’s commitment to enforcing the recently passed Belarus Democracy, Human Rights, Sovereignty Act of 2020, which was originally introduced as a separate bill as HR 8438 in the 116th Congress but later included in HR 133, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The resolution also recognizes additional forms of repression that Lukashenka’s regime has used against the peaceful pro-democracy activists, such as politically motivated dismissals, disproportionate criminal sentences, and threats to revoke parental rights. The people of Belarus need all the support they can possibly get now. In just a week since the resolutions had been introduced in the House, two of the journalists named in it, Darya Chultsova and Ekaterina Andreeva, were convicted of inciting riots for livestreaming a protest for Belsat TV channel and sentenced to two years in prison. In addition, the evangelical church New Life had its parish building seized after its members recorded a video appeal to stop the violent repressions in Belarus. As constituent, it would mean a lot to me if you signed up to co-sponsor House Resolution124.
