Віцебск натхніў. Палова выступоўцаў казала па-беларуску, гукалі "Жыве Беларусь!", "Свабоду Ціханоўскаму!", ""Стоп таракан!" і "Верым, можам, пераможам!"— Павел Севярынец (@sieviaryniec) May 31, 2020
Бел-чырвона-белыя сцягі. Сонечна.
Агулам - больш за 1000 чалавек.
Дамовіліся, што праз тыдзень нас будзе больш! pic.twitter.com/MuYOBRSZCY
“We can stop keeping our money in Belarusbank, we can take our deposits from there! We can stop buying fuel from Belneftekhim! We can stop shopping at Euroopt and Korona - these are Lukashenka’s wallets. We can buy nothing at Tabakerka kiosks. Economic boycott to the regime! Stop feeding the regime! ”
People answered with exclamations “Stop the cockroach!” and “Long live Belarus!”.
“If someone can just come and put a signature - do it. But this is not enough. If someone can speak out on social networks - do it. But this is not enough. If there is a need to come out in a joint general protest, all together, all over Belarus - come out! That might be enough! If not, then a strike and an economic boycott! ” called Pavel Seviarynets.
