For overfourmonths Belarusian citizens havecontinueda mass protest, which was triggered by what they considered a “stolen presidential election”. The mobilisations beganon9 August, seeing at its frontlines young people, women and workers. The consequentdemocratic uprisingwas considered a breakthrough: a momentum in which the power of the people would rise above the lastremainingEuropean dictatorruling their country. With every day passing, with every struggle and push back against police, against intimidation, with every act of resistance and every strike, thereishope that Belaruswillfree itself and pursue a democratic path.
