About Salidarnast

Who we are

The Salidarnast Association was founded by trade union leaders and activists from Belarus, who were forced to leave the country after the liquidation and repression of democratic trade unions. The charitable association is registered in Germany and based in Bremen.

“Solidarity is not an act of charity, but mutual aid between forces fighting for the same objective.”

Samora Machel

Our mission

The goal of Association Salidarnast is the revival of an independent trade union movement in Belarus with the aim of creating a democratic society based on the principles of social justice and decent work.

Our vision

We cannot leave our colleagues in prisons without support and Belarusian workers alone with the regime. Despite the destruction of the independent trade union movement, workers in Belarus remain the force which can resist the dictatorship. And we must support their aspirations for democracy in every way we can, and at the same time preserve the trade union culture.
