Belarus: “Denim Revolution” Unlikely to Succeed

    8pm, Minsk, Go Without Fear.

    Revolutions are not always easy, colorful and peaceful.

    Most of the time, revolutions are violent, chaotic and the philosophy is puzzling and grey.

    Death will come to you, either tomorrow or much much later. But, there are actions that rise above life and death and the meaning is much much greater.

    Be that action. Be the freedom you wish to see in Belarus. Only you can free yourself.

    Act without hesitation.
