Demonstration to begin in MinskThursday, April 26, 2007 at 17:56 | Posted in Belarus, civil rights, democracy | Leave a comment
I just received a news letter from Team of Belarusian Freedom Day Online saying that a demonstration is about to begin in Minsk. Real time on line reporting on the scene at Kolas Square has started for half an hour ago.
The police have closed a nearby subway station and the square itself. Demonstrators are not allowed to the square.
An extract of the news letter:
Lukashenka regime holds on the ability to hide the oppression of the civil society by creating an information vacuum. The website 25 Belarusian Freedom Day Online is created to publish uncensored news about the event this year and thus resist the propaganda of Belarusian state media. You can help bringing democracy in Belarus by spreading the information about the website http://en.belarusy.eu in order to show the international community how Belarusian regime treats peaceful demonstrators and to draw more attention to the problem of democracy in Belarus.
Let us spread the news, folks!
