I Am the Coordinator. Why Women Took to the Streets
Since August 15, every Saturday in Minsk, Belarusians went to a Women’s March against police brutality and as a sign of solidarity with everyone who yearns for change in the country. Women came out demanding Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s resignation, new elections, release of political prisoners and investigation of all acts of violence against civilians. Women with flowers in their hands and in white dresses became a symbol of the new Belarus, known all over the world.
