Conference 2013

Conference

In 2003 a conference was held on 2 October at the Prague Crossroads. It was entitled "Civic Society: Freedom is Not to Be Taken for Granted" and was organised in honour of Ales Bialiatski, a Belarusian dissent and writer who has been in prison since 2011 for alleged tax evasion. Ales Bialiatski was represented at the conference by his wife, Natalia Pinchuk.

Speech in Czech Parliament

„After all our identity does not consist of our talking about it and constantly shouting over the place that “we are Czechs, we’re the best”, but of our being capable of saying something original to others, of creating something that can attract others but is unlikely to originate elsewhere.“
