London Belarusians hold flash-mob against death penalty

At 8 a.m. on 6 June Belarusians of London held a flash mob against the death penalty. They reminded that in Belarus bodies of death convicts aren't issued to their relatives, but burried in an undisclosed location.

The action "Give The Body Back!" reminds a place of a terrorist act. People lie on the asphalt in bags for corpses near police cars.

The flashmob was organized by "Free Belarus Now". "In such a way we shed light on the hundreds of people who have "disappeared " or were executed. Living bodies will lie still in the packages – return the body before it becomes a corpse," is stated at the campaign's website.

Belarus is the only European country in which the death penalty still exists.
