As guests from all over the world arrive to Ukraine to attend the Eurovision Song Contest, we cannot forget the dozens of Ukrainians who can’t join in the festivities. There is #NoEurovisionFor the political prisoners, as they are illegally held captive in Russian jails.
We are not trying to “politicize” Eurovision. Solidarity with people who are victimised for expressing their beliefs is defending human rights. After all, this Eurovision is all about celebrating diversity.
This Eurovision, remember the ideals it represents, freedom, justice and self-expression. Remember the Ukrainians in prison for expressing themselves, let’s remind them and the world that they are not alone.
Do you want to make your voice heard, and take a stand against persecution, intolerance and hate? Join us today, and help us bring these prisoners home.
We rely on your voices to spread the word. Tell your friends and loved ones that there’s #NoEurovisonFor Ukrainian political prisoners. They can’t make their voices heard, now it’s up to you.
The average price of a cup of coffee in Kyiv is around €1. A luxury coffee won’t cost more than €3. Imagine how much food that would buy for a fatherless Crimean Tatar family.
