    [Video] A satirical video and an update on what’s happening in Belarus almost 4 months since the uprise                          

    It  has been snowing in Belarus since Sunday (29 November 2020) and  that says a lot about the tipping point that was passed almost 4 months   ago,  in the summer, when on the 9th of August,  Lukashenko “won” his 6th   term in office (in power since 1994), in an election that has been   criticized as blatantly rigged. For almost 4 months now the people of   Belarus have not given up the fight against injustice and the autocracy  of Lukashenko.Yesterday, once  again the protesters in Belarus took to the streets of  capital Minsk,  in spite of the intense crackdown, police brutality and  abuse of power   imposed in recent weeks by the police, in which hundreds   were detained  and protesters were prevented from gathering in central   Minsk.

    Change of protest tactics

    The  riot police attacks  and arrests prompted Lukashenko’s opponents to   change tactics, calling  on supporters to create small gatherings in   every district of the  capital. According to local media, some 20   rallies took place on Sunday  across the city. As in previous weeks,   several metro stations in the  city centre were shut and mobile phone   connection was limited.“Large   columns of people have assembled in all districts of Minsk,  without   exception. The Lukashenko police are desperately rushing from  district to district,” said opposition Telegram channel Nexta Live.  Scores of   riot cops were deployed with the Tut.by news website reporting  police   attacks with flash-bang grenades, tear gas and batons.According to human rights group “Viasna” that at least 20 people were arrested.

  • The following is a summary of all the postcards, letters, and other snail mail goodies I received from folks all over the world during the month of November this year (2020).

    Please excuse the crappy image quality! I’m working off my phone, which I do not have the best relationship with.

    I also apologize that this is a day late. College and life and stuff, you know. 

    Also, hey, this is the 300th post on this blog!

  • Minsk, 29/11, day one hundred somethingteen of whatever this is — sure enough this video is far from being a complete overview, but it’s the most complete one apparently… Anyway, we’re still doing the decentralized protest thing, with every neighborhood “going for a walk” at the same time, cops are running wild but inefficient, resort to catching lots of random bystanders (reportedly even some rare Lukashenko supporters) to meet their planned arrest count, mobile internet down as usual, roads blocked by cops, by protesters, by drivers diverted by cops, by drivers supporting protesters — basically just a normal Sunday, what do you mean it’s not like this where you live
