Minskers carrying on: 29th day of protests in photos
Belsat continues to monitor developments in the country.
Over the past four weeks, Minsk has been facing the most large-scale rallies and pickets in its history. Lots of its residents leave their homes in bedroom communities and march to the centre of the city. Protests against the results of the presidential election have been going on in Belarus since August 9. They are often accompanied by brutal detentions, and during the first days of 9 to 12 August detainees testified to various forms of torture. According to human rights activists, just over 7,500 people were detained in August 2020.
Today’s Unity March kicked off at about 2 pm in the Belarusian capital. During the protest, masked plainclothes men were spotted in beating and grabbing the participants.
