It's always interesting how Mainstream media presents protests

So when i see Bbc, guardian etc. Reporting on the positive nature of the Belarus protests it all sounded a bit colour revolution to me like the Nazis in Ukraine and the nationalists in Hong kong violently beating mainlanders and spewing racism to mainland chinese

And with Belarus

The inscription in the underpass.

"А на дрэвах замест лісця будуць вісець камуністы" - Communists will hang on the trees instead of leaves.

The opposition of the social fascists in Belarus is held with this flag

It first appeared when occupied by German troops in 1918 in the all capitalist invasion of Russia to overthrow the Bolsheviks

It appear again under occupation of the Nazis in Ww2

Under this flag these scum murdered their jewish neighbours, sent people as slave labour to Germany, fought against partisans and burned entire villages alongside the Nazis

The third time this flag appeared was in 1991-1995 when the nationalists destroyed the Soviet Union

In 1995 it was replaced with a modified soviet symbol

With Belarus in Western mainstream media who will no doubt present nazis in Belarus as they did in Ukraine:

who wore Stepan Bandera(nazi SS collaborator who murdered thousands of jews in Ukraine) scarfs as 'normal people seeking justice, democracy and whatever other liberal bullshit'

Know that if they're flying the White red white flag....Before you stands a nazi

Also i noticed that they actually have Setpan Bandera on their banner

Employees of the Philharmonic sang on the steps of the building the song of Магутны Божа (Mighty God). In their hands they held letters that formed the phrase "my voice was stolen".

"Магутны Божа" (Mighty God), author's title - "Prayer" - a poem written in 1943 by Natallia Arsiennieva.

Natallia Arsiennieva is the wife of the chief Belarusian Nazi collaborator Franz Kushel.

As usual MoonOfALabama provides the most lucid illumination of what is going on in Belarus

Combination of:

Lukhashenko wouldn't allow neither the Russian bourgeois or Western booj in Belarus

West financed Nazis in Belarus (as per usual) combined with the upper rich class who saw their fortunes in Western markets

West saw an opprtunity to capture Belarus and march up to Russian border

Lukhashenko has killed this by signing Union with Russia

Fascists and gullible youth in Belarus 

Communist Party of Belarus

The subversive work is carried out by specially trained instigators: from outright fascists to inveterate criminals.
their dastardly undertakings, as usual, are carried out by the hands of gullible youth
Such "protests" are not new in the post-Soviet countries. The foreign "puppeteers" aim to carry out a coup d'etat now in Belarus. It is clear that if they win, the country will face bloody chaos and landslide degradation

I was notified by an anarchist today that the White Red White flag is not a symbol of Belarussian nationalism but merely a throw back to 14th Century middle ages and it was the only other flag available because "Lukhashenko invented the other" when in actuality the current Belarussian flag was put to a referenda

The Ron Paul Institute on Belarus in 2015:

"Lukashenko has been a favorite punching bag of the US and western neocons for a number of years because he has not shown the required level of deference to his would-be western overlords compared to, say, the Baltics. He routinely wins re-election even as the US government has funneled millions of dollars into the political opposition in hopes of somehow fomenting a regime change."

so the list of demands has come through on the opposition

They are calling for widespread privatisation (you know, the kind that killed 12 million Russians post USSR)

They're also calling for the end of price controls

They cite "difficulties in hiring and firing people"

and the rights of small business

So neoliberal shock style therapy to make job security insecure

@EnglishRed is the one with the cross the same as the one that is white red white?

@thufie It is trying to combine 3 symbols of fascism (the 3rd being the War ensign of Nazi Germany a lot of fascist flags have)

* The Red white red flag

* The Pagonya emblem

* The War ensign of Germany

Attaching the original War ensign of Nazi Germany as well as a South American fascist flag incorporating the ensign

@EnglishRed It is not even a Belarussian medieval flag, but a Polish medieval flag. I have a hard time understanding how people view it as a legitimate symbol of Belarussian nationalism when Belarussians were progressively marginalized as an ethnic minority under Polish rule after the Polish-Lithuanian union. My family is from Western Belarus and my grandmother could not attend a Belarussian language school until liberation by the Soviets; Belarussian was not recognized as an official language.

@vsedach ive seen many people make the same arguements the nationalists do when pointing out it was a nazi collaborator flag held by sieg heiling fascists who murdered their jewish neighbours

The WRW flag first came into contemporary use in 1918 under German occupation of Belarussia by the nationalists (Belarussian Democratic Republic) that sided with White guard russians and monarchists

@EnglishRed I meant that the flag is literally a variation on the banners used by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_ "Poland annexed parts of Belarussia, Lithuania and Ukraine in 1920" also not entirely true. There was no such country as "Belarus" until the Belarussian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1922. Before that it was just a part of Duchy of Lithuania and later Poland.

@vsedach thats interesting

Are you Belarussian and are you in Belarus right now?

Do you know think the nazi collaboration under this flag taints it?

@EnglishRed I do not consider myself Belarussian. My father is Belarussian and lives there now, as do many relatives. The flag was made up by Poles and Polish collaborators; the only other use was by the Nazis; so yes, it is certainly tainted. Not that it matters - there is no such thing as nationalism without fascism. Waving a flag around as a symbol of nationalism instead of a symbol of justice is an expression of ethnic entitlement and an invitation to fascism. Seeing the same in the US.

@vsedach Poland annexed parts of Belarussia, Lithuania and Ukraine in 1920

Then Poland subjected those areas to Polandisation of language suppression and apartheid

until Ussr took that land back in 1941 and gave them back their languages and gave the land back to each republic

If youd like to source your comment on Ussr suppressing the Belarussian language id be interested as it goes against everything ive read

@vsedach sorry i see youre saying Poland suppressed the Belarussian language

I think its because people keep sieg heiling in front of the WRW flag
