David Lan, Young Vic, and Michael Attenborough, Almeida Theatre, are asking people to join them and thir company members in marching on Monday to support the Free Theatre of Belarus and Index on Censorship in their campaign to free all political prisoners.

They say:

"We work in a country that allows us to express ourselves. What is happening in Belarus is the equivalent of the coalition government arresting all the staff of the Almeida, or the staff of the Young Vic and their families having to be on the constant alert in case they are kidnapped.

The Belarus Free Theatre are part of a community of storytellers linked throughout the world. But they aren’t allowed to tell their story. Please help to tell it by asking your company members and anyone else who can draw attention to their cause to join the march on Monday 28th March at 5pm, at The HQ of Grayling PR (who are currently attempting to lure investment into Belarus), Portland House, Bressenden Place, London SW1E 5BH. At 5.30pm we will walk to the Houses of Parliament where the Belarus Free Theatre and Jude Law will perform their play ‘Generation Jeans’ in front of MPs and 100 friends to ask the government for their help.

In New York, The Public Theatre managed to get 30 Theatre companies and hundreds of theatre makers to stand up in support of our friends in Belarus. We hope to match that."

Please RSVP to freebelarusnow@youngvic.org if you can attend.

    I am a Program Advisor at Amistad Academy MS in New Haven, CT. My team was selected by inirnpooatcrg writing into our process. Students had to write a one paragraph essay answering these questions:•What qualities do you have that you can bring to the FUTP 60 team?•How important is eating healthy and exercising to you?•Name two ideas/activities you have that will motivate students to participate in FUTP 60.•Why do you think FUTP 60 is so important?The purpose of inirnpooatcrg writing was to get the students to really think about “why” they wanted to participate in our group. When the students were selected (10 out of 15), we began planning events for the year and working with our Food Service Director. Here are some of the activities we have created over the past 5 months:•Created a 60 minute presentation at a school-wide Town Meeting as our Kick-off event. Parents were invited…big success•A food survey was created for the students to see what they liked about our breakfast and lunch menu, and what they would like to see changed.•We post monthly questions on the walls around our school building. They included fitness, science, nutrition and health questions that are rotated every 4 weeks.•Posted FUTP 60 stickers & posters EVERYWHERE in our building…you can’t miss us!•Fuel Up Fridays at breakfast (We dance, exercise and/or stretch for 5 minutes during breakfast to get our students moving for the day.•Taste tests – during lunch (new fruits, raw veggies, dips etc.)•Fitness breaks – teachers randomly use them when they feel the need…ex. if the energy level in class is low or students seem off task•Participated in the FUTP 60 School Spirit Challenge•Have a student representative that is now the CT State Representative for FUTP 60 by entering the state application process•Created a poster contest for National Physical Fitness & Sport MonthMy team of students have enjoyed creating fitness activities and making positive changes around our school. There is a great sense of pride in every activity that we participate in. We appreciate having the opportunity to engage our school in fun activities that challenge them to think about what they eat, and to include exercise into their daily lifestyle.Althea White (PE Teacher)
