Heard It From Her

‛The Last Drop’: Why Belarusians Took To The Streets


RFE/RL Minsk correspondent Alaksandra Dynko reported from a wave of historic protests that took place across Belarus in February and March and ended in a police crackdown that saw the arrest of hundreds of peaceful demonstrators and journalists, including RFE/RL Belarus Service correspondent Halina Abakunchyk. In this episode of Heard It From Her, Alaksandra explains how a policy of penalizing the unemployed as social parasites spurred nationwide outrage, discusses the women’s face of unemployment in Belarus, and analyses the connections with recent events in Russia.
