The protests in Belarus that erupted after the controversial Presidential Elections and the re-election of Alexander Lukashenko, entered its 50th day on September 27. More than 10000 demonstrators marched in Belarus on the 50th day of the protests and carried placards calling Lukashenko “the naked king”.
Lukashenko’s main election opponent, Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya was all praise for the spirit of the protestors. “Today is the 50th day of our protest and the Belarusian people have again come out on the streets,” she said in a statement from Lithuania, where she went into exile after the election. “We have come to stop this regime and we will do this peacefully.”
“Democracy is the power of the people. The entire people are stronger than one man,” she said.
