Lithuanian Canadian Community and the Belarusian Canadian Alliance


Sunday, Aug. 23, 2020

Canadian Belarusians, Canadian Lithuanians, and representatives of other diasporas formed a human chain in Toronto today to support the people of Belarus in their struggle for freedom and democracy.

Along Bloor Street from Kipling to Islington, four hundred members of the Lithuanian Canadian Community and Belarusian Canadian Alliance stood together to raise awareness of the tragic events in Belarus.

This was part of an international Freedom Way Vilnius-Belarus initiative with similar events taking place in over 20 countries.

“The historic Baltic Way of  August 23, 1989, was a human chain of 2 million people across Lithuania, Latvia  and Estonia, which later regained independence. Freedom Way Vilnius-Belarus on August 23, 2020 is our symbolic effort to show the people of Belarus that they are not alone,” says Skaidra Puodziunas, Coordinator of the Freedom Way for Belarus Event.

“All of us, living here in Canada, seem far from the front line of this battle between good and evil. However, we all need to help the Belarusians in Belarus with what we can: our moral solidarity, political support, and financial help,” says Mitt Korot from the Belarusian Canadian Alliance.
