Possibilities of pressure on the dictatorial regime in Belarus

received via email, from Lukáš Borl

Recently, anarchists who already have extensive experience in Lukashenko’s regime repressions have been imprisoned. Dmitry Dubovsky, Igor Olinevich, Sergei Romanov, Dmitry Rezanovich, Mikola Dziadok, Akihiro Gaevsky-Hanada and others. The reason for their prosecution is obvious: they resisted the dictatorship. The regime in Belarus is no different from other dictatorships. It does not accept active resistance to one’s own evil, even if it is only the activity of individuals or small groups. The ruling class realizes that after so many years of oppression, any resistance has great potential to become richer until the regime overwhelms it and falls.

“They threatened to rape, said they would take me to the Gestapo or the forest”.

Nikolai Dedok story, handed over to Radio Svaboda.

On November 12, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported on the arrest of anarchist blogger Nikolai Dedok. Then the press service of the department claimed that the detainee “actively cooperates with the investigating authorities and gives confessions.” At the same time, on the record, published together with the police press release, it is clear that Dedok was severely beaten. Now he is accused of organizing actions that grossly violate public order (Article 342 of the Criminal Code). From the person with whom Dedok managed to talk in the detention centre on Akrestsina Street, “Mediazona” learned the details of the anarchist’s detention.

The Uprising in Belarus

The Uprising in Belarus

From The Final Straw Radio

Belarus is continuing to experience a revolt against the 26 year dictatorship of the post-Soviet dictator, Alexander Lukashenko. The situation came to a boil, fueled by yet another election rife with administration corruption, the creation of mutual aid infrastructure in the face of a government that abandoned public health measures in the face of the corona virus pandemic, decreased economic quality of life… people found each other and the state turned on them. In response to the police violence, regular folks came out into the streets to oppose the dictatorship and the system threatened collapse. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Interview w/ anarchist in Minsk + Review of repression

via ABC Belarus

Interview with anarchist in Minsk about the Belarus protests

The fight against the capitalist system and the authoritarian nation states driving the destruction of the planet must be an international one if it has any hope of succeeding. That’s why we decided to reach out to anarchists in Belarus to learn about the current wave of protests confronting the regime of Lukashenka. We did it by contacting the Anarchist Black Cross Belarus, but this interview represents the opinion of a single anarchist in Minsk and doesn’t reflects the position of any particular organisation or group.
