A multitude of farewells

In a country ruled by an authoritarian regime, laws both dictate in detail how life must be led, and strictly limits the fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual.

Living under oppression implies continuously violating laws and rules, just to have what elsewhere is taken for granted, just to live one’s life.

Goodbyes to all those that have been killed, arrested, imprisoned, and as well to those who have departed the country and cannot come back.
