On 25th March 2007, the celebrations of the "Day of Will" - the day of independence of the People´s Republic of Belarus in 1918 - took place in Minsk. In the context of this event around 70 representatives of Belarusian civic initiatives were arrested. Some were attacked and beaten by Police order forces of the Lukashenko´s regime.

The development of events once again proved the substance and nature of the non-democratic regime of A. Lukashenko, which still refuses a serious discussion with the representatives of the political opposition and civic initiatives. All the signals of the current regime and the efforts to establish cooperation with the EU are appearing in the light of these events as false.

We call up for an immediate release of all political prisoners and people arrested during the celebations of the "Day of Will", and for the respect of human rights and democratic values in Belarus.
