Recent protests and repressions in Belarus

February and March have marked one of the most active protest period in the recent history of Belarus. Thousands of people were protesting not only against the infamous unemployment tax but against dictatorship of Lukashenko. People in the cities all around Belarus have organized their local gatherings and planning further steps in their struggle. Anarchists played an important role in those protests in several places. Reaction from the state followed – hundreds of people arrested and sentenced to short term arrests of 10-15 days, several are now prosecuted for planning riots.

During the evening we will have a presentation about the country, actual situation there and political struggle inside. After presentation there will be a chance to ask your own questions about the situation. We will be also gathering money for those affected by repressions – for fines, parcels and some money support in case people loose their jobs or don’t get paid. Presentation will be in english with german translation if required.

Biggest protests in Belarus in the last 10 year

In Belarus last weeks people took to the streets to fight the law against social parasitism – law that was signed by dictator Lukashenko in 2015, but started troubling population only at the beginning of the 2017. Thousands took to the streets in Minsk, Brest, Gomel and many other smaller cities all around the country, to show their discontent with the law and the current regime. The protests seems to have little influence from “official” opposition- instead of that people previously not involved in the politics are organizing together. In several places anarchist played quite a big role in the protests. Last week belarusian government started repressions against those on the streets – up until now over 48 people were detained and prosecuted for different violations. Read More
