In Belarus, the Support. Don’t Punish action took place in Minsk, on board a pleasure craft on the river Svisloch. The coordinator of the “Positive Movement” organisation, as well as representatives of the community of people who use drugs and of people who are under methadone maintenance treatment, all participated in the action. Participants held posters of the campaign, but also drafted their own batters with the following message: “Each person who uses drugs has an opportunity to speak openly about their rights and needs. Support. Don’t Punish!”.
