Belarus opposition confident of change despite year of ‘hell’ unleashed by Lukashenko

“A year after his tainted electoral victory, Belarusian strongman Alexander Lukashenko continues to use violence and intimidation against his opponents at home and abroad to cling to power.

But the opposition isn’t giving up hope that he can be pushed out.”

“Lukashenko is showing no sign of loosening his grip.

All prominent opposition leaders have either been arrested or forced out of the country. Protesters have faced mass arrests. The regime is now rooting out the few remaining independent media operations and NGOs — including education institutions, human rights advocates and the local unit of the PEN-center headed by Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Aleksievich, who lives in exile in Germany.”
