Belarus ABC Infotour 2013 - UK dates in February & March

A speaker for the Belarus ABC will be over in UK from 15th February - 10th March 2013 to conduct an infotour about the continued imprisonment of anarchist comrades and others, and the severe state repression that has been going on for years. The tour is also being supported by the Anarchist Federation and the International of Anarchist Federations.

Details about the prisoners and solidarity actions including links to photos and videos can be found here: http://www.afed.org.uk/component/content/article/334.html

Solidarity demonstrations previously took place in London, Paris and Rome on September 2012. Release of one prisoner followed.

Confirmed dates so far:

If they'd be willing to hold a second one in London, after a quick ask around it sounds like SOAS anti-cuts group would be more than happy to hold an event? Our JCR is a pretty good place for it and you can get a fair few people.
