Belarus: There has never been anything like this and here we are again – To the question of the violence of the Belarusian State till 2020

Belarus. Now we have a situation in which some of Lukashenko’s supporters who swapped to opposition are trying to prove that violence from the regime is something new and unexpected. They say that no one in the Interior Ministry had ever used violence before, and that Belarus had had a state based on the rule of law until 2020. In an attempt to create a new history, a separate reality is formed, which absolutely denies the experience of both those who have experienced violence by the Belarusian state and those who have directly used violence against the population.

#Belarus: against capitalism and dictatorship, for internationalist solidarity

The Commission of Relations of the International of Anarchist Federations (CRIFA) expresses its support and internationalist solidarity with the struggles of people in Belarus against Alexander Lukashenko’s dictatorship, a mass movement that is participated in by our anarchist comrades there. The situation in Belarus concerns the autocratic dictatorship that has lasted for 26 years, the current economic, health and public services crises. A wave of protests have filled the squares of the country to request the dictator’s withdrawal. As anarchists, we are not empassioned by the debate on whether the last presidential elections were fair or not. It is simply clear that the people in Belarus are saying ‘enough is enough’: they do no longer want a government which is starving, beating and oppressing them.
