About Salidarnast

Who we are

The Solidarity Association is the legal successor of the Belarusian Congress of Democratic Trade Unions (BKDP)  and continues

the activities of the congress after the complete liquidation

of independent trade unions in Belarus and the arrest of trade union leaders and activists under the conditions of a dictatorial political regime

“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.
