Belarussian Spring


Following the "elections" held last Sunday, Belarus opposition activists continue to protest against the results announced by the authorities, which gave more than 80% of the vote for the dictator Lukashenko. As in many other historical moments all around the world, young people are in the front row of the fight for democracy and freedom. They know that this is the time and place, and maybe the last chance to change the situation and offer themselves a future.

In the dictatorial country as Belarus is right now under Lukashenko despotic rules the word ‘election’ does not have any meaning.

The election where you are not given a choice or where your vote is falsified constitute only a cover for abuse of power- which I believe is a case in Belarus. We had in my country few years back…and we fought it!

I am completely supportive for opponents in Belarus.

Well come back Marta! As you might know, I'm also with those who fight for democracy and freedom, in Belarus and in other places.
