The biggest protests in years took place in dictatorial Belarus. They were caused by a new law, forcing every who has not been working for at least 6 months in one year to pay a “tax”. With this “tax” of 180 €, the government wants to finance healthcare and education. The average income in Belarus is 200-300 €. Because of the protests, the dictator Lukaschenko promised to suspend this “tax” for another year. Still the protests are going on. It is not only about this new law, it is about the dismissal of Lukaschenko. The government took over 160 journalists, anarchists, politicians of the opposition and demonstrantors in custody or imposed a fine on them.Every day more people are facing repression.
