The Belarusian police might have been monitoring the situation in the Belarusian capital city, but women and girls still hold marches in Minsk from time to time.

Although one may be fined or even arrested for having and showing symbols in national colours, female protesters keep wearing white-red-white clothes and carrying ‘politically unreliable’ umbrellas during the marches which have already become a tradition since the autumn of 2020.
