Hundreds of people took to the streets of the Polish city of Bialystok on Thursday evening to demonstrate against the regime of President Alexander Lukashenko in Belarus.
Protesters held a banner reading in Polish: "60 kilometers from here people are fighting for freedom."
Bialystok is a major city near the Polish-Belarusian border.
Demonstrators of both Belarusian and Polish origins marched with a gigantic red-and-white former flag of Belarus, which has become the symbol of the nation's democracy movement.
The protesters marched to the front of the Belarusian consulate for a rally.
Speakers at the rally who also marched with protesters were Mayor of Bialystok Tadeusz Truskolaski and his deputy Robert Tyszkiewicz, the head of the Parliamentary Team for Belarus.
