Some of you may have noticed that there is an election in Belarus today (or tomorrow depending on where you live), March 19th. Belarussian dictator Alexander Lukashenko said that any protesters resisting arrest would be treated as terrorists. "We'll twist their heads off as if they were ducklings". The White House is "deeply concerned" and no one seems to expect this election to meet democratic standards...

Lukashenka To Opponents: "We Will Twist Their Heads Off" (RFE/RL)

17 March 2006



Alyaksandr Lukashenka said in a short televised address he would not allow protesters to block "streets and squares." Earlier today, the Belarusian president told reporters at a truck factory outside Minsk that security forces were ready to deal with any potential unrest. "God forbid any of those people who were mentioned or not mentioned yesterday should commit any sort of act in our country. We'll twist their heads off as if they were ducklings," Lukashenka said.

Authorities yesterday displayed on national television a man who confessed to undergoing guerilla warfare training in Georgia with a view to overthrowing the government. They said that any protesters resisting arrest would be treated as "terrorists."

The European Union's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, today warned Belarusian authorities in a statement they would meet a "strong international reaction" should they use violence against peaceful demonstrators.

BBC: Poll mistrust clouds Belarus vote

19 March 2006, 06:11 GMT


Opponents of President Alexander Lukashenko have called for a mass rally after polls close at 2000 (1800GMT), to protest against electoral fraud.

Mr Lukashenko has warned he will not tolerate any attempt at a "coup" and has vowed to "break the neck" of anyone who tries to seize power. Police have said that protesters "trying to destabilise the situation" will be treated as terrorists and could face the death penalty.

A spokesman for the human rights organisation, the Helsinki Committee, told the BBC the Belarussian government's threats to opposition groups could trigger violence. "We've had similar statements during previous elections... This one is stronger and maybe it's a sign that we should expect violence during Sunday evening.

According to an exit poll, Lukashenko got 84.2% of the votes.

The White House has submitted a report to the US Congress, saying Lukashenko ("Europe's last dictator") sold illegal weapons to Iran.


Sydney Morning Herald: Belarus accused of selling arms to Iran

March 20, 2006



Belarus has moved closer to international isolation after the White House submitted a largely classified report to the US Congress accusing the country's President, Alexander Lukashenko, of illegally selling weapons to Iran.

The report, released on the eve of yesterday's election in Belarus - which it denounced as a sham - comes amid condemnation of a brutal crackdown on his opponents by Mr Lukashenko, labelled Europe's last dictator.

A US official said the report alleges that the Belarusian Government sold arms and components that could be used in weapons of mass destruction to Iran. It also claims military hardware was sold to Sudan.

Tens of thousands of opposition supporters rallied in Minsk. They will gather again tomorrow for another rally! Lukashenko seems to have "won" the election, whether he "got" 88.5 or 98.4 % of the votes or not. "Large personnel trucks" has delivered troops to the area...


Belarus: Lukashenka Claims The Votes, But Opposition Gets The Crowds (RFE/RL)


How many Belarusians turned up is a matter of guesswork, but as many as 30,000 opposition supporters gathered to protest a vote that will already seems certain to President Alyaksandr Lukashenka to office for an unprecedented third term.

Alyaksandr Milinkevich, the main democratic candidate in the vote, appeared at October Square, as did his fellow opposition figure Alyaksandr Kazulin. Milinkevich ended the rally with a call for opposition supporters to return to the square for another ally on Monday.

The Belarusian Central Election Commission (CEC) said with 22 percent of the ballots counted, Lukashenka had won 88.5 percent of the vote.

Earlier, CEC head Lidziya Yarmoshyna said early figures from "closed" polling stations, such as hospitals and military bases, showed the incumbent with an "even more overwhelming" victory, with 98.4 percent. Milinkevich described the official results as "laughable."

Are we going to see another revolution like the ones in Ukraine, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan? Or will it end in a bloody massacre like we saw in Uzbekistan? Keep an eye on the present situation in Belarus. This could end up as a historic event. If there is a massacre, the international community will punish Lukashenko for it.

Yeahyyyy - another war ! This Iraq stuff was beginning to get boring and I think we've saved those people enough - we need a new enemy and something with 'enko' on the end of it sounds like a good target. Nice and evil sounding, justifiable, as though that's an issue. LOOK OUT MR. LUKASHENKO AND GET DOWN OFF YOUR BACK LEGS - uncle sam is watching you....

Does anyone have any doubts that those elections were trully probably rigged?

Oh well, fear not, Jimmy Carter will probably go there and claim it was "a democratic election, and all Belarusians are free and happy to have Lukashenka as their dictator...I mean their elected leader".......

Here are some updates on the Belarus situation. Continued presence by opposition activists. Authorities are trying to freeze and starve them out. Visit the article for a good report.


FTS: Belarus Update: 7 (by Soj)

March 22, 2006



Well the continued presence by opposition activists in October Square in Minsk continues. For many good photographs, see here.

Unfortunately, the authorities have figured out a new plan to suppress this protest. Instead of arresting the people in the square, they are arresting those bringing them food, with reports of several hundred taken into custody, including at least one domestic journalist. The idea is to freeze and starve them out, with no brute force necessary.

Even more photos here.

This could cause some problems, I believe. The opposition is working on setting up an "alternative government" in Belarus!


Axis News: Belarus opposition to set up an alternative government.


Belarus opposition leader Alexander Kozulin and his campaign headquarters staff are currently working on the plan to set up an alternative government in the country, online paper Gazeta.ru said Wednesday. The “people’s trust government” project will then be introduced to the political council of Belarus democratiс forces. “We are currently developing a proposition to the political council of democratic forces to set up the government of people’s trust,” press secretary for Alexander Kozulin told Interfax news agency. Kozulin’s staff are negotiating with political and social Belarus activists over the possible work format for the alternative government, the press secretary added. It is too early to say who will take part in the forming of the new government, she said.

The imposing of a ban will come two days after Belarus President Lukashenko took an oath for a third term Saturday in the country's capital Minsk.
