Bishop prays for Belarusian people peacefully calling for democratic reform

Bishop Declan Lang, Chair of the Bishops’ International Affairs department, is urging the UK government to collaborate with other countries to address the human rights abuses in Belarus.

“At 5pm this evening we will join with Christians across Europe, to say the Lord’s Prayer for justice and peace in Belarus.

“We stand in solidarity with the Belarusian people and are profoundly concerned by the arbitrary detention and torture of those calling peacefully for democratic reform.

“I urge our own government to continue its important collaboration with other countries in addressing these grave human rights abuses and promoting an inclusive dialogue to end the violence, as called for by the Bishops’ Conference of Belarus.”
