Belarus: The wave of protests is intensifying


Belarusian protests are gaining momentum. A general strike begins in Belarus. Workplaces across the country are joining the protest against the rigged elections and brutality of the police. Large factories have joined the strike. So far there is no information about the reaction of the authorities.

Meanwhile, a peaceful strike by women is becoming an increasingly common form of protest. The women dressed in white have created a chain of solidarity in many cities. 

There are also reports of police officers leaving the service in protest against the decisions made by their superiors.
