Since August 9, there were more than 20,000 detained people among those who took to the streets of Belarusian cities to exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
Freedom of speech is fundamental in a democratic society. The alarming situation in Belarus is a reminder to stand up for this right, writes two IMS student interns in a blog.
"They do not recognize us and pretend we do not exist when we try to talk with our government".
We express concern about the approach chosen by administrations of educational institutions of expelling and intimidation of students — participants of peaceful assemblies.
What future for Belarus?
