Description

Living under systemic political oppression by the non-legitimate power means living under the everyday risk of being beaten, detained, tortured, fired from a job, expelled from the educational facility, having your kids expropriated from family, or even murdered to death. Knowing these all, Belarusian people have been resisting the regime since the most recent presidential elections on August 9, 2020. This paper provides a brief description of the main hurdles experienced by Belarusian people from the authorities, the ways of helping them to survive through the most repressive times ever seen in this country, and why all the above turns out a positive feedback loop.
