For two month people have been protesting in the street in Belarus.
The 9th of August was the election day and Lukashenko hoped to be reelected like in the past 5 election periods. But this didn´t happen. First time in his ruling period real results were published. And to no ones surprise Lukashenko didn´t achieve 80 % as he usually orders everybody to announce.
Svetlana Tichanovskaja won the election, the women who stepped in running for president after her husband was detained, because he was a presidential candidate himself.
The situation exploded in several directions. people went on the streets and the police answer was brutal violent.
Two month ago we already had a show which focused on the circumstanced which lead to this uprising. In this show we give an update and a review on two month of protest.
