Belarus: Pictures From An Opposition Meeting

LJ users aliaksei and belnetmon share their impressions (RUS) and photos of the opposition candidate Milinkevich's meeting with the voters in Minsk on Sunday: two to three thousand people of all ages showed up, including some agents provocateurs and undercover KGB men; the music was blaring so that no one could hear the candidate speaking. LJ user aptymist (BEL) also links to some pictures from the meeting. A man with a video camera on aliaksei‘s last photo is, most likely, a KGB agent filming the meeting's participants.
