Early in the morning in St Petersburg, some anarchists hung a banner on the Alexander Nevsky Bridge that read ‘The Will of the Belarusian people!’ as a sign of solidarity with the detained protesters and anarchists in Belarus.
“We were inspired by the struggle of the Belarusian people against the dictatorship of Lukashenko. Despite the persecution, the people continue to fight against tyranny and lies. We hope that the events unfolding in Belarus will ignite a spark that will awaken the people of Russia against the dictatorship! Freedom for political prisoners!”
