  • 100K march against Lukashenko in Minsk, opposition calls nationwide strike

    Minsk, Oct 25 (EFE/EPA).- More than 100,000 Belarusians took to the streets of Minsk and other cities on the 11th consecutive Sunday of anti-government protests, this time on the so-called "People's Ultimatum Day" against President Alexandr Lukashenko, demanding that he resign by midnight and free all political prisoners."Today at 11:59 pm, the People's Ultimatum starts and, if the demands are not met, Belarusians will begin a national strike," warned opposition-leader-in-exile Svetlana Tikhanovskaya on the Telegram television channel.Later, with Lukashenko's failure to respond by the deadline to - and comply with - the ultimatum, Tikhanovskaya issued another statement, saying: "The regime once again has demonstrated today to Belarusians that violence is the only thing it has. But detonating stun grenades against people and below the windows of maternity hospitals is not power. The regime is not ready to fulfill the demands of the people. This means that this regime is not worthy of the Belarusian people and it means that it is losing power." (Camera: TATSIANA ZENKOVICH).
