'Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of angry men? It is the music of the people Who will not be slaves again! When the beating of your heart Echoes the beating of the drums There is a life about to start When tomorrow comes'. (From “Les Misérables”)

"I will serve my sentence, I will come out with my hands and my head held high, my soul pure", these were the last words of an imprisoned artist after his unjust sentence had been announced. There are more and more such sentences, and it is horrendous. That is why we don’t give up, for every creative act of protest and every act of solidarity is a voice, thousands, hundreds thousands of voices of free people, and together these voices break through the blockade of fear and violence.

I’ll Keep the Right to Remain Myself – Issue 15: What is Happening in Belarusian Culture during the Social and Political Crisis
“Prison bars only prepare us for the life without them”, we repeat the words of Andrej Chadanovič, in our minds and aloud, like a mantra, because the repression continues. And so is our fight.

The beginning of January in Belarus feels like an ebb after a storm: a wave of mass repressions has subsided, it’s time to deal with the thickets of arrests and convictions, dismissals and bans. But the music hasn’t stopped playing, the brush is dipped in paint, a pen has touched the paper, the spirit of the free people is dancing a karahod.
