Welcome to the Free Belarus Project:

An effort to present as many public readings of Belarus Free Theater’s Being Harold Pinter in as many places as possible in January 2011 to help raise awareness and support for democracy in Belarus.

Belarus: where is it? HERE. Now you know.

Why this site?
The violent crackdown on the post-election protests in Minsk on 19 December, 2010 came as a symbolic ‘closing’ of the brief period of relative liberalisation, which Belarus enjoyed since 2008.”  As part of this crackdown, over 600 people were arrested including theater artists of the company Belarus Free Theater. We at Skewed Visions started this page as a centralized source of information about the Free Belarus project.
