No Easing of Belarus Repression
In the cold, outside the human rights defence body the Council of Europe, this handful of exiles from Belarus shout: "Stop Lukashenko!" (president of what critics call Europe's last dictatorship).
They are in Strasbourg to try to shake up European decision-makers; they say sanctions have failed to reduce repression in their country.
Demonstrating in Belarus led Pavel Khivuk to prison there twice, and then political refugee asylum in France.
