What's happening?


There are some cards in google that will probably explain the situation better than me, I just know what I've read in Russian news and from fundraiser creators. Basically, the "current president" of Belarus A.Lukashenko "won" in the elections which were so obviously fake, a lot of people went to protest them. Only to be met with police violence. People are being arrested, beaten, and tortured violently for simply going outside and peacefully demanding justice. This is sick.

The leaders of the opposition (mostly women) demand fair elections where Lukashenko's main opponent, S. Tikhanovskaya can compete against him fairly. The opposition suggests that the actual elections numbers were 90% in her favor, however the official number state that she only has 10% and Lukashenko has 80%.

Putin's stance on this is definitely pro-Lukashenko and he has offered to send military help to him if situation gets "out of control", which is very bad. Lukashenko is running around with a gun and a terrified face, but he refuses to let go of the presidential seat and openly defends violence and torture against protestors, claiming those are essential to keep the country together.

I see a lot of info carrds floating around, but not a lot of links to funds so here they are. The funds are named BY_Help and By_Sol.

If you have a platform bigger than mine, consider spreading the links around or adding them to your Belarus-themed carrds. I don't know if there's a way to contact carrd creators and ask them to link the funds, but if there is... Please, someone, do it. I am already shaking really badly as I'm typing this so I can't.

Ways to show your support:

Жыве Беларусь slogan (literally: Viva Belarus)

Use the white-red-white flag instead of the current "official" Belarus flag, which is green and red. No, the white-red-white flag does not have any fascist undertones.

Thanks for taking your time to read.

they're getting a lot of support which is great. couple of news from what i've heard:

  • the protests didn't "burn out and die" as several news sources suggested after a brief pause in them

  • Putin suggested he will offer forces to help belorussian oppressive government (namely Lukashenko) in case the situation "gets out of control" which is so bad its surreal but i hope he still stays in his lane since his raiting is!! not so high amongst russians anymore!! who would have thought!!

  • the police brutality is still on unspeakable levels

  • some western europe countries are helping which is great

  • Lukashenko is going obsessed so he won't quit peacefully unless he's forced to; however the opposition is positive that they will succeed since literally the entire country rose up

  • ways to show support are to show white-red-white flag instead of current Belarus' official one (green and white? i think?). no, this flag doesn't have any nazi connotation
