Polish Activists To Rock Against Lukashenka

3 August 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Young Poles want to use rock music to help Belarus's pro-democracy opposition resist the regime of Belarusian President Aleksyandr Lukashenka.

Pawel Stanczyk, head of Poland's Association of Young Conservatives, says in Warsaw the association has launched a new campaign called "Rock Against The Regime" to lend support to opposition forces in Belarus.

Stanczyk describes rock music as "the music of freedom and independence."

He says the project aims to flood Belarus with "anti- establishment" rock music.

Stanczyk says rock in all media formats will be transported from Poland into Belarus where they will be given to Belarus pro-democracy student and youth organizations for distribution.
