“Your faith will live long” – Issue 18: Belarusian Culture During the Socio-Political Crisis

"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.

Who Goes There? New Year, Same Repressions. Issue 14 of Weekly Digest about Belarusian Culture

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.

Svetlana Alexievich’s appeal to the UN Human Rights Council, protest art, support from all over the world – in issue 9

While "people are looking to the sky with sorrow, waiting for when the helicopter crashes", creators come up with the ways to live and work in the conditions when they keep losing jobs and getting detained, can’t hold live gigs and perform for free people, when the terror all over the country doesn’t stop, and for a white-red-white flag in one’s own window one can get to Akrestsina prison.
