Belarus: The Times They Are A-Changin'



Issued on: Modified:

Mass protests in Belarus are now well into their third month, with President Alexander Lukashenko still refusing to leave power after an August election widely believed to have been rigged in his favour. This week, opposition members tried to launch a national strike to pile on the pressure, but it wasn’t taken up widely. However, protesters say they’re undaunted and that grassroots support for the opposition is only growing. Our correspondent Gulliver Cragg reports from the capital Minsk.
