  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “In Belarus, protest movement struggles to regain momentum” – below is their description.

    #Belarusian President Alexander #Lukashenko’s #authoritarian regime is doing its best to prevent a revival of the protests that marked the second half of last year. Opposition leaders are in jail or in exile. New so-called “anti-extremist” laws make it dangerous to even show the protest movement’s red and white colours. Buildings that happen to be in those colours are being repainted. Many opposition supporters are struggling to keep up morale, but others are doing just that by finding inventive new forms of activism.
