Не забудзься! November 16, 2005

Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.

Today, like every 16th of the month, is Solidarity with Belarus Day, when Lukaphobes worldwide flick off the switch at 8pm, light a candle and stick it on their windowsill for fifteen minutes in a collective yahboo-sucks-to-you action. Belarusian opposition folk seem fairly happy with how the first SwBD went a month ago and it’s hard to imagine Belarusian OMON breaking down doors to flats across the country and blowing out candles, so hopefully this can be a peaceful protest with some effect. And lighting beacons is a tradition full of myth and romance, of course. Let’s hope it becomes one of the symbols of the Maple Revolution.
